"Already number one on Amazon. Hard work from a brilliant guy. It’s the Real Story of the Rigged Witch Hunt!" 

The book appeared as No. 3 on Amazon's best-seller list as of Thursday morning, just behind "Fear: Trump in the White House" by veteran journalist Bob Woodward.

Sixth on the list is “Liars, Leakers and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy," Fox News host Jeanine Pirro's book that Trump promoted from the Oval Office last month.

"Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further," Trump tweeted.

ABC News reported Wednesday that Trump's barrage of tweets earlier in the day came after he learned that Mueller wants to ask him about obstruction of justice.
