"The Dems are now coming out of shock from the terrible Mueller performance, and are starting to spin impeachment all over again," Trump tweeted. "How sick & disgusting and bad for our Country are they. What they are doing is so wrong, but they do it anyway. Dems have become the do nothing Party!"

The president also bashed Mueller's "display of ineptitude & incompetence."

After the former special counsel's Wednesday testimony, some Democrats joined calls for an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and others doubled down on past calls.
