"Everything the Democrats are asking me for is based on an illegally started investigation that failed for them, especially when the Mueller Report came back with a NO COLLUSION finding," he wrote. "Now they say Impeach President Trump, even though he did nothin wrong, while they 'fish!' "

"After two years of an expensive and comprehensive Witch Hunt, the Democrats don’t like the result and they want a DO OVER. In other words, the Witch Hunt continues!" Trump added.

His remarks come as Democrats have pressed for special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerCNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump CNN anchor rips Trump over Stone while evoking Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting The Hill's 12:30 Report: New Hampshire fallout MORE to testify before Congress on whether he believes Trump obstructed justice, a crime for which Mueller did not make a determination.

The president's latest ire toward congressional Democrats comes as more members of the party come forward in support of opening impeachment hearings against Trump, a move that days ago earned its first GOP supporter in Rep.

Democrats have threatened impeachment hearings for months, and the calls have only grown stronger amid resistance from the White House over turning over information Democrats have requested as part of their investigations, including information related to the Russia investigation as well as the president's tax returns.

The pressure to begin impeachment hearings has yet to win support from House Democratic leadership, though Democrats have become more vocal in demanding action from Pelosi and others.
