Donald Trump had one of his longest and most angry Twitter meltdowns ever this morning. He appears to be completely freaking out as he waits for special counsel Robert Mueller’s next move.
The targets of the president’s attacks today include:
- Robert Mueller,
- James Comey,
- “The woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi,”
- Andrew Weissman,
- The 17 Angry Democrats,
- Crooked Hillary,
- People that worked for the Clinton Foundation,
- Rod Rosenstein,
- Bruce Ohr,
- John Brennan,
- James Clapper, and
- All of the many fired people of the FBI.
Here is the full, uninterrupted text of this morning’s Trump Twitter tirade:
Robert Mueller and Leakin’ Lyin’ James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest. And bye the way, wasn’t the woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi (who I do not know) in charge of “legal” at the corrupt Clinton Foundation? A total Witch Hunt…….
Will Robert Mueller’s big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report. Will Andrew Weissman’s horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report. He wrongly destroyed people’s lives, took down great companies, only to be………….
overturned, 9-0, in the United States Supreme Court. Doing same thing to people now. Will all of the substantial & many contributions made by the 17 Angry Democrats to the Campaign of Crooked Hillary be listed in top of Report. Will the people that worked for the Clinton……..
Foundation be listed at the top of the Report? Will the scathing document written about Lyin’ James Comey, by the man in charge of the case, Rod Rosenstein (who also signed the FISA Warrant), be a big part of the Report? Isn’t Rod therefore totally conflicted? Will all of…….
the lying and leaking by the people doing the Report, & also Bruce Ohr (and his lovely wife Molly), Comey, Brennan, Clapper, & all of the many fired people of the FBI, be listed in the Report? Will the corruption within the DNC & Clinton Campaign be exposed?..And so much more!
Needless to say, none of Trump’s tweeted accusations are true. Mueller and Comey are not best friends. The Mueller team is not composed of Democrats. Andrew Weissman’s past was full of stellar accomplishments, and was not horrible and vicious. Rod Rosenstein is not conflicted. And so on.
Today is the day when Robert Mueller is expected to release two more sentencing memos, one for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and one for former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
The Manafort memo may be especially damaging to Trump if it describes in detail how Manafort lied to prosecutors, and what he lied about. If the two memos are not heavily redacted in the same way that the Michael Flynn sentencing memo was, then some extremely interesting information could be made public.
All three of these men — Flynn, Manafort, and Cohen — operated at the highest levels within Trump’s 2016 campaign. All three of them had the president’s trust, and were present when top-level decisions were made by him.
Donald Trump is incredibly frustrated and angry that his three closest advisers outside his family have turned on him, and are cooperating with prosecutors.
Donald Trump’s desperate tweets today give us a window into his state of mind. And what we have seen is not a pretty sight. Increasingly he seems out of touch with reality, and might even be close to a mental breakdown. If that does happen, let’s just hope he doesn’t take the country down with him.
