"Just watched Sunday Morning Futures with @MariaBartiromo on @FoxNews. This show is MANDATORY watching if you want to understand the massive governmental corruption and the Russian Hoax," he wrote on Twitter. "It will be rebroadcast this evening at 6:00 P.M. on @FoxBusiness. A must see!"


Trump's tweet was his latest attack on special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerWhy a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel CNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened 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.
