"A message to Mueller: Stay strong and stand tall. Continue to investigate them all. You are indeed answering the people's call. The Kremlin Klan is going to fall," Waters tweeted. 

"Around you the Democrats are building a wall. We look forward to the day, to prison they will all be hauled." 



Waters's comments come as Mueller's probe faces increased criticism from Republicans skeptical of the investigation.

Critics argued the texts were evidence of anti-Trump bias on the Mueller team. 

Strzok was reassigned from the Mueller probe after the messages were revealed. 

Waters's tweet also came the same day Manafort sued Mueller and the Department of Justice on the grounds that the probe "is overly broad and not permitted under Justice Department regulations." 

Trump said in an interview last month that he believed Mueller would treat him fairly.
