“The Greatest Political Hoax of all time! Crimes were committed by Crooked, Dirty Cops and DNC/The Democrats,” Trump tweeted early Thursday morning.

“PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!” Trump added in a second tweet.

The president went on to retweet a slew of messages from the conservative group Judicial Watch that criticized Clinton and suggested there was a conspiracy at the Department of Justice and FBI to undermine the president.

While Trump's targeting of the Mueller investigation is nothing new, the tweets come just hours before Attorney General William BarrBill BarrDC correspondent on the death of Michael Reinoehl: 'The folks I know in law enforcement are extremely angry about it' DOJ says Trump can't be sued for denying rape accusation Juan Williams: Trump's search for dirt falls flat MORE is slated to release a redacted version of Mueller's full report to the public.

Though Barr said Trump has been cleared by Mueller on any suspicion of coordinating with the Kremlin in 2016 and that the report does not contain proof of obstruction of justice, the report is expected to contain new evidence that could be embarrassing for the White House. 

Barr is set to hold a 9:30 a.m. press conference Thursday morning before Congress will receive a redacted version of the report about 11 a.m. The rollout has sparked a firestorm of criticism from Democrats who said the administration was trying to spin the report before its release. 

“This is outrageous. The AG is supposed to be an independent beacon of truth and justice. Instead, Barr is debasing the rule of law, degrading our democratic institutions, and decimating any trust the American people have left in this Administration. #ReleaseTheReport,” tweeted Rep.
