President Trump publicly confirmed that he was under investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller Friday morning, and also put Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on blast, saying:
That’s right folks, this is a WITCH HUNT!
Mueller will be examining whether or not President Trump was involved with Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and whether he pressured Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
One feature of the investigation will involve President Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who was previously leading the Russian investigation.
Rosenstein issued a memo in May that was highly critical of Comey’s work performance, and that memo had been cited by the President and others as one of the reasons for his firing.
President Trump made several more statements Friday morning highlighting the ridiculousness of the Russia investigation and the great job he’s been doing for the American people and economy:
He also declared how grateful he was to be able to speak directly to Americans through social media:
I am so happy the President has a medium through which he can directly communicate with the American people- otherwise, we’d never know what was going on or just how unfairly he was being treated.
