"Sorry, I’ve got to start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military, and so much more, and not on the Rigged Russia Witch Hunt that should be investigating Clinton/Russia/FBI/Justice/Obama/Comey/Lynch etc.," Trump said.

The tweet was his fourth in less than an hour decrying the law enforcement investigation into Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 election and whether members of his campaign conspired with Moscow to sway the race.

In an earlier tweet on Tuesday morning, Trump suggested that special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerSenate Democrats urge Garland not to fight court order to release Trump obstruction memo Why a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel MORE's team, which is carrying out the Russia probe, would meddle in the 2018 midterm elections.

"The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls. There was no Collusion, except by the Democrats!"

Another tweet questioned why Clinton and her campaign were not under investigation, and repeated Trump's frequent claim that Mueller's investigation is a "witch hunt."

"Why aren’t the 13 Angry and heavily conflicted Democrats investigating the totally Crooked Campaign of totally Crooked Hillary Clinton," he tweeted. "It’s a Rigged Witch Hunt, that’s why! Ask them if they enjoyed her after election celebration!"

Trump also quoted conservative commentator Mollie Hemingway in another tweet on Tuesday morning in reference to his unproven allegations that the FBI spied on his presidential campaign in 2016.
