The @RealDonaldTrump Twitter account is awake and tweeting on Thursday, June 15. Whereas 24 hours ago Twitter was celebrating President Donald Trump’s 71st birthday with balloons streaming on his @RealDonaldTrump Twitter page, as reported by the Inquisitr, by Thursday, the balloons were gone. In their place were tweets from@realDonaldTrump claiming that President Trump was the victim of the biggest witch hunt ever undertaken in political history in the U.S.
“You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!
#MAGA 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.”
As reported by the New York Times, President Trump lashed back on Thursday against news that a federal investigation has been launched into uncovering any connections with the Russians, the White House, collusion and if President Trump attempted to obstruct justice by allegedly asking former FBI Director James B. Comey to drop the investigation into Michael T. Flynn.
Robert S. Mueller III is the special counsel leading the obstruction of justice case, and has asked for interviews with three senior intelligence officials in an effort to get their sides of the story. He’s also attempting to garner documents from the NSA to determine how the White House interacted with the National Security Agency in regards to the Russia investigation.
President Trump refrained from tweeting about so-called witch hunts and “phony” stories on Wednesday, June 14, when Mr. Trump spoke at the White House about the attacks of 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, against congressmen and Capitol Police in Alexandria, Virginia.
Although President Trump proclaimed in the White House’s Rose Garden that Comey’s testimony proved “no collusion” and “no obstruction,” the efforts by Mueller show that the investigation is moving forward. Controversy erupted when President Trump’s friend, Christopher Ruddy, said that President Trump thought about firing Mueller, as reported by the New York Times. However, President Trump was talked out of firing Mueller. But the new tweets from President Trump on Thursday prove that he’s still fighting for his political life via his @RealDonaldTrump Twitter account, and using hyperbole and all capital letters like “single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history” in order to convince his Twitter followers, at minimum, that he has done nothing wrong.
