President Donald Trump let loose on Twitter Wednesday morning ahead of special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, airing a familiar list of grievances with Mueller’s Russia probe and harping on a new GOP frustration.

Trump claimed it was “NEVER” agreed upon that Mueller’s aide Aaron Zebley — whom Trump called a “Democrat Never Trumper” lawyer — would appear alongside Mueller on Wednesday. It’s still unclear whether Zebley intends to actually testify beside Mueller as a witness or if he’s attending the hearing to provide silent counsel.

Trump concluded the rant with a run-of-the-mill refrain: “NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!”
