"Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone looking for trouble," he continued. "They are enjoying ruining people’s lives and REFUSE to look at the real corruption on the Democrat side — the lies, the firings, the deleted Emails and soooo much more! Mueller’s Angry Dems are looking to impact the election."

"They are a National Disgrace!" the president added. 

Trump in a subsequent tweet said Mueller's team "made up a phony crime called Collusion." 

"Where’s the Collusion?" he asked. "They made up a phony crime called Collusion, and when there was no Collusion they say there was Obstruction (of a phony crime that never existed). If you FIGHT BACK or say anything bad about the Rigged Witch Hunt, they scream Obstruction!" 

Trump on Sunday tweeted multiple times about Mueller's probe into possible ties between his presidential campaign and Russia, calling the investigation "McCarthyism at its worst." 

"Study the late Joseph McCarthy, because we are now in period with Mueller and his gang that make Joseph McCarthy look like a baby!” the president tweeted, referring to former Sen. Joseph McCarthy's (R-Wis.) search for communists in the 1950s.
