Trump Claims Mueller Team ‘Will Be Meddling’ With Midterm Elections

In a mystifying turn of events, President Donald Trump on Tuesday claimed the team of federal investigators probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, will themselves actually be “MEDDLING” in the upcoming midterm elections.

Apparently referencing special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators, Trump launched a series of tweets about the “13 Angry Democrats” early Tuesday who, he claimed, were taking great pains to keep Republicans from “taking the lead in the Polls.” He repeated his tired defense that there was “no Collusion” by anyone, “except by the Democrats!” and also said federal investigators should be spending their resources investigating his former political opponent and his predecessor.

Trump’s Tuesday tweets are just the President’s latest attempts to discredit the Russia probe by undermining his Justice Department for having, as he claims, a “deep state” political bias against him.

In recent weeks, Trump has become transfixed on reports that a government informant met with members of his campaign. He’s labeled the whole ordeal “spygate” and has peddled claims that the “spy” was dispatched by the Obama administration for political reasons.
