After taking a notable break from Twitter early this week, President Donald Trump sent out a flurry of tweets this morning on one of his favorite topics: Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
The tweets come after Mueller secured a guilty plea from former Paul Manafort deputy Rick Gates, who is now believed to be cooperating with the investigation. Mueller also recently secured a guilty plea from Dutch lawyer Alex van der Zwaan for lying to investigators about his interactions with Gates.
In a series of tweets, Trump offers several quotes from an appearance by Fox judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News last night where he the judge opined that "written answers" would be a victory for the president, referring to a report last week that Trump's lawyers are pushing for Mueller to accept limited testimony from Trump, including the possibility of offering written answers to the Mueller team's questions.
Napolitano soon turned the conversation to Hillary Clinton's criminality and any evidence that might remain at the DOJ, saying "somebody in the Justice Department has a treasure trove of evidence of Mrs. Clinton's criminality..." which Trump quoted...
“He’s got a very good point. Somebody in the Justice Department has a treasure trove of evidence of Mrs. Clinton’s criminality at her own hands, or through others, that ought to be investigated. I fully agree with the President on that.” @judgenapolitano on @marthamaccallum Show— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 27, 2018
...Along with several other comments from pundits expressing skepticism about the investigation...
“I’ve been skeptical about the collusion and obstruction claims for the last year. I just don’t see the evidence....in terms of the collusion, it’s all a bit implausible based on the evidence we have.” Jonathan Turley on @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 27, 2018
“We’ve seen NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION....I have seen nothing, the firing of James Comey and all of the aftermath, that suggests that the President has obstructed justice because he’s exercising his power as the President of the U.S. I just don’t see it.” Judge Ken Starr— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 27, 2018
...Before ending his tweetstorm with a familiar declaration...
