Trump melting down over increased fear that Barr’s report to Congress won’t clear him: White House insider
When Attorney General William Barr first released his four-page summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, President Donald Trump took a victory lap, believing himself cleared.
Now, with Barr gearing up to release more of Mueller’s findings to Congress, he isn’t so sure. And it is driving him to redouble his attacks on the special counsel.
According to Politico, a Republican source close to the White House says that Trump is no longer sure that the report will be a “complete and total exoneration,” adding that “He wouldn’t be bringing this up still if everything was hunky dory.”
On Saturday, Trump lashed out at the Mueller investigation on Twitter, saying “So, let’s get this straight! There was No Collusion and in fact the Phony Dossier was a Con Job that was paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC. So the 13 Angry Democrats were investigating an event that never happened and that was in fact a made up Fraud. I just fought back against something I knew never existed, Collusion with Russia (so ridiculous!) – No Obstruction. This Russia Hoax must never happen to another President, and Law Enforcement must find out, HOW DID IT START?”
