Trump Accuses ’13 Angry Democrats’ on Mueller Probe for Meddling in 2018 Midterms

President Donald Trump blamed the Russia investigation for meddling in the 2018 midterm elections, calling out the “13 Angry Democrats” working on the Mueller probe as part of an effort to harm Republican candidates ahead of elections this November.

In a tweet Tuesday morning, Trump once again bashed the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller looking into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election, but this time he took his criticism of the probe a step further, accusing investigators of meddling in upcoming elections themselves.

The president went on to tout the strong poll numbers of some GOP candidates as he claimed that the Russia investigation is dominated by conflicts of interest and partisan bias. He did not offer proof of his claims.

Trump also repeated his claims that Hillary Clinton should be investigated for corruption and collusion instead of him, suggesting that Clinton-allies involved in the Russia probe are refusing to investigate her.

The accusations leveled by the president come after the Mueller investigation reached the one-year mark, with no definite end to the probe in sight. Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has said that it should wrap up by September 1 to avoid interfering in the midterms.

But in the meantime, it’s clear that Trump won’t let off his criticism of the Russia investigation despite a slew of other issues facing his campaign. In another sardonic tweet, the president touted his progress on North Korea, trade, and the military while bashing the failures Mueller’s team.

The president concluded his morning tweets by reminding everyone that he’s president, accusing the media of running “the most highly sophisticated & dishonest Disinformation Campaign in the history of politics” in an effort to steal credit from his successes since he took office.
