- Trump hits out at his Democrat rivals including ‘Crooked Hillary’ and Podesta
- Appearing to send the tweets while en route to the G20 Summit in Japan, Trump demanded to know why the House is not calling James Comey to testify
- The president accused the investigation of being a ‘rigged Democrat Con Game’ in which alleged spying against his campaign in 2016 was overlooked
President Trump has launched another attack at Democrat rivals following the announcement of former special council Robert Mueller’s testimony next month, dubbing the investigation into Russian collusion a ‘Rigged Democrat Con Game.’
Appearing to send the tweets while en route to the G20 Summit in Japan, Trump demanded to know why the House is not calling the likes of James Comey or John Clapper to testify, but asking Mueller to clarify the details of his investigation.
The president accused the investigation of being a ‘rigged Democrat Con Game’ in which alleged spying against his campaign in 2016 is being overlooked and ignored.
He wrote: ‘Why aren’t the Democrats in the House calling Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Page and her FBI lover (whose invaluable phone records were illegally deleted), Crooked Hillary, Podesta, Ohr (and Nellie), the GPS Fusion characters, Christopher Steele, the DNC (& their missing server)….’

Adding shortly afterwards: ‘….and all of the others who have leaked, lied and did so many other terrible things? How is it even possible that these people are not being brought forward? Because it is a Rigged Democrat Con Game, and the Fake and Corrupt Media loves every minute of it!’
House Democrats will call on the former special counsel to answer questions regarding the context, clarity, and conclusions of his investigation.
His tweets come hours after he accused the former special counsel of trying to erase evidence of potentially damning text messages between two FBI employees.
Trump has long been fixated with a text between the two in which they talked of an ‘insurance policy’ if he won in 2016.
The provocative allegation of a ‘crime’ by Mueller was one in a series of distorted claims made by the president in an interview on Fox Business Network and on Twitter on Wednesday.
Trump on communications between two FBI employees, said: ‘Mueller terminated them illegally. He terminated the emails, he terminated all of the stuff between Strzok and Page, you know they sung like you’ve never seen.
‘Robert Mueller terminated their text messages together. He would – he terminated them. They’re gone. And that’s illegal, he – that’s a crime.’
Meanwhile, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says he expects special counsel Robert Mueller to have ‘a profound impact’ when he testifies before Congress on July 17, even though Mueller has said he won’t provide any new information.
Mueller’s unusual back-to-back testimony in front of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees is likely to be the most highly anticipated congressional hearing in years, particularly given Mueller’s resolute silence throughout his two-year investigation into Russian contacts with President Donald Trump’s campaign . Democrats negotiated for more than two months to obtain the testimony, hoping to focus public attention on the special counsel’s 448-page report that they believe most Americans have not read.
‘I think just if he says what was in the report and says it to the American people so they hear it, that will be very, very important,’ Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told reporters Wednesday. ‘Whether he goes further than that, we’ll see.’
