As the nation’s capital is still dealing with yesterday’s shootings at a GOP baseball practice in suburban D.C., President Trump is lashing out at the investigation headed by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The President tweeted early this morning, “They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice”. He followed up an hour later with the tweet, “You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!”

That’s an apparent reference to CNN’s reporting that three top lawyers hired by Mueller for his investigation were donors to Hillary Clinton’s and other Democrats’ campaigns.
