'You Are Witnessing the Single Greatest WITCH HUNT in American Political History'
President Donald Trump launched into a rage Thursday morning, first tweeting confirmation that he is under criminal investigation for obstruction of justice, and now, calling this investigation a "WITCH HUNT" and attacking Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
"You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history," Trump tweeted, "led by some very bad and conflicted people!" He finished his tweet with his signature hashtag, "#MAGA."
Twitter was quick to respond:
Mueller was a decorated Marine officer, commanded a rifle platoon in Vietnam, Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient. Is he a “bad” person? https://t.co/J51pww7kXN— Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) June 15, 2017

Salem Witch Trials, McCarthyism, the GOP's Peter King vs. Muslims, etc. Those were WITCH HUNTS. What's happening now is patriotism & karma.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) June 15, 2017
Trump is fresh off pushing Hillary Clinton conspiracy theories for 2 years. Does he really think "e-mails" are worse than Russia collusion?— Adam Best (@adamcbest) June 15, 2017
