Trump first blasted the “failing and crooked” New York Times over its “long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!”

He then went on to target the makeup of Mueller’s team, calling for an investigation into former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonThere are many unanswered questions about FBI culture FBI agent who sent anti-Trump texts offers to testify on Capitol Hill Giuliani wants 'full and complete' investigation into Russia probe's origins MORE instead of him.

"At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP!" Trump tweeted.

"Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam," he added, referring to Clinton.

Trump also claimed that because Mueller's probe has "given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World" it will continue during the 2018 midterms, "where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party."

 

  

 

The Times published a bombshell report on Saturday saying that the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.Donald (Don) John TrumpBannon: I don’t believe that Trump says things that are not true Giuliani: 'I doubt' Trump knew Roger Stone met with Russian during 2016 campaign The Hill's Morning Report — 'Sobering' IG report damages FBI MORE, had met with George Nader, an emissary for the crown princes of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, during the 2016 campaign.

Nader reportedly told Trump Jr. that the crown princes were willing to help Trump win the election. The Times's report is the first indication that a country other than Russia sought to influence the 2016 election.

An Israeli political strategist named Joel Zamel also reportedly attended the meeting. His company created a plan to manipulate social media in an effort to help elect Trump, according to the Times.

A lawyer for Trump Jr. told the Times in a statement that “prior to the 2016 election, Donald Trump Jr. recalls a meeting with Erik Prince, George Nader and another individual who may be Joel Zamel. They pitched Mr. Trump Jr. on a social media platform or marketing strategy. He was not interested and that was the end of it.”

This week marked the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s appointment as special counsel. Trump has repeatedly attacked the investigation as a “witch hunt” and claimed that the probe is biased against him.
