President Donald Trump fired off several tweets about the Russia investigation early Tuesday morning, ostensibly while catching up on Fox News’ coverage of the matter.

In a tweetstorm capped with a tweet that only read “WITCH HUNT!” in all capital letters, Trump quoted several people who have appeared on Fox News recently to discuss Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Trump used the quotes to defend himself from the Russia probe and point a finger at Hillary Clinton instead.

Trump first quoted Fox News contributor Andrew Napolitano, who appeared on a Fox News show Monday evening. He then mentioned a quote from a law professor before jumping back to Ken Starr’s appearance on “Fox and Friends” Monday morning. The President often publishes angry tweets while catching up on cable news coverage in the early morning hours while he is still in the White House residence.
