Just concluding three days of private meetings with his personal lawyers, President Trump renewed his attacks on Thursday on the special counsel investigation, calling it “A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY.”
The barrage, launched on Twitter, ended the silence of the President over the issue, which has ensnared some of his former aides.
He tweeted on Thursday that investigators were “threatening” people to provide “the answers they want”.
“They are screaming and shouting at people,” Mr Trump wrote, adding that no collusion between his election campaign and Russia had been found. He called the investigation as a “witch hunt”.
The President returned on Sunday from a trip to Paris and faced criticism at home for his decision to skip a solemn visit to an American cemetery in France, one of many events organized to mark 100 years since the end of World War I.
