President Donald Trump went after the special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday in his most direct attack yet on the former FBI director.
He called Mueller “disgraced and discredited,” and referred to his team of prosecutors as “thugs” who enjoy “ruining people’s lives.”
On Sunday, Trump’s lead lawyer Rudy Giuliani accused the special counsel’s team of leaking stories to the press and said he wouldn’t let Trump walk into a “perjury trap” by agreeing to a sit-down interview with Mueller.
The unprecedentedly harsh and highly personal attacks come as jurors are deliberating the fate of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who Mueller’s team tried on tax and bank fraud charges.

In four tweets on Monday, President Donald Trump went after the special counsel Robert Mueller in his most direct attack yet.

“Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel, only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” Trump tweeted, referring to White House lawyer Don McGahn’s testimony with Mueller and misspelling “counsel.”See the rest of the story at Business Insider
