Trump's tweet was his latest attack on special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerKamala Harris says her Justice Dept would have 'no choice' but to prosecute Trump for obstruction Kamala Harris says her Justice Dept would have 'no choice' but to prosecute Trump for obstruction Dem committees win new powers to investigate Trump MORE's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. 

In a tweet earlier Sunday, Trump revisited his charge that the "Mueller Witch Hunt" is illegal.

"The illegal Mueller Witch Hunt continues in search of a crime. There was never Collusion with Russia, except by the Clinton campaign, so the 17 Angry Democrats are looking at anything they can find. Very unfair and BAD for the country. ALSO, not allowed under the LAW!" he said.

Trump has frequently sought to discredit the special counsel and has often described the investigation as a "hoax" and a "witch hunt" even as his own intelligence officials have said that Russia meddled in the 2016 election.
