President Donald Trump’s tweeted breathlessly about the New York Times report about the 40+ questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may want to ask him. NYT isn’t saying where it got the list of vague-ish, open-ended “questions.” So far, money is on someone from Team Trump having leaked the material. Maybe so that, hours later, Trump could tweet to his 40-something million followers how “disgraceful” it is “that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were ‘leaked’ to the media.”
“No questions on Collusion,” Trump tweet-crowed. Not accurate, though many TV news pundits have been impressed by how many of the questions focus instead on whether Trump obstructed justice.
“Oh, I see…you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!”
Taking a break, to trash previous administrations in a tweet about a delegation he has sent to China “to begin talks on the Massive Trade Deficit that has been created with our Country,” Trump returned to Mueller’s questions. “It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened! Witch Hunt!” he snarked.
