Lou Dobbs: Mueller is on a 'jihad' against Trump

Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs said Monday that special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerMueller report fades from political conversation Trump calls for probe of Obama book deal Democrats express private disappointment with Mueller testimony MORE is acting like he's on an "ideologically inspired jihad" in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. 

“[He's] behaving like nothing so much as a prosecutor, he is more, if you will, he’s on a jihad of some sort, and it is an ideologically inspired jihad," Dobbs said on "Lou Dobbs Tonight." 


Dobbs, a vocal supporter of President Trump, added that he's "frustrated and annoyed and disgusted" by Mueller's probe. He repeatedly said that there is no evidence of any crimes, "high or low," by the Trump campaign. 

Mueller's investigation has brought dozens of indictments for federal crimes, including multiple guilty pleas. 

On Tuesday, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's trial begins. It is the first trial prompted by Mueller's broad investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and any possible coordination with the Trump campaign. 

Manafort is standing trial for alleged money laundering and failing to register as a foreign agent, actions which reportedly occurred well before the 2016 election. 

“The hell with Mueller!” Dobbs said. “The hell with what he wants. This is not a game. This nation deserves full-time leadership and no further effort to subvert, to overthrow the presidency of Donald J. Trump. It's ignorant and it's stupid beyond disbelief." 

Dobbs has attacked Mueller before. In April, he said he'd personally fire Mueller "in three seconds." Dobbs's statement came shortly after the FBI raided the office and home of former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen.
