Trump renews calls for Mueller to investigate Clinton

President Trump on Sunday renewed his calls for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

“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!”

{mosads}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 Comey and the president’s repeated prompting of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to claim oversight of the special counsel, despite his recusal from Mueller’s Russia probes.

Last week, Trump revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, a frequent critic of the president.

He also said he was considering revoking the clearances of former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Comey, former National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page and Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr.

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.
