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!”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
