“No Collusion and No Obstruction, except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats,” the president tweeted. “All of the resignations and corruption, yet heavily conflicted Bob Mueller refuses to even look in that direction. What about the Brennan, Comey, McCabe, Strzok lies to Congress, or Crooked’s Emails!”

The tweet followed earlier posts on Sunday in which Trump attacked the “failing” New York Times for a report that he said implied White House counsel Don McGahn must be a “John Dean type 'RAT.' ”

The Times reported on Saturday that McGahn had grown concerned that Trump was preparing to set him up for a fall over the issue of possible obstruction of justice and gave over 30 hours of testimony to investigators. McGahn reportedly discussed Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyTrump orders intel agencies to cooperate with Barr probe into 'spying' on 2016 campaign Attorney General Barr puts former intel bosses on notice Christopher Steele's nugget of fool's gold was easily disproven — but FBI didn't blink an eye MORE and the president's repeated prompting of Attorney General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsAmash: Some of Trump's actions 'were inherently corrupt' 'Persuadable' voters are key to the 2020 election — and the non-screaming news industry Jeffrey Rosen officially sworn in as deputy attorney general MORE to claim oversight of the special counsel, despite his recusal from Mueller's Russia probes.

Trump often labels Mueller’s probe into Russia's election interference and possible collusion between his campaign and Moscow as a “witch hunt.”

In July, he called it “a Democrat Con Job” in a tweet suggesting investigators should look into Clinton’s emails.
