Trump Lashes Out at Mueller Again

President Donald Trump vented at his Justice Department, his Cabinet members and his former political opponents in searing remarks Monday evening.

The remarks came during a round-table discussion at the White House that was intended to discuss the administration’s response to a suspected chemical weapons attack carried out by the government of Syria against its own people.

But in remarks to the press before the meeting’s business, Trump spent more time ripping special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“It’s a disgraceful situation, it’s a total witch hunt,” Trump said of recent reports that the FBI searched the office and residence of Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, after receiving a referral from the special counsel.
