Panicked Trump cries 'no Mueller Report' after Congress backs its release
Trump whined that there should be no report from special counsel Robert Mueller a day after Congress unanimously backed a public release.
"The Special Counsel should never have been appointed and there should be no Mueller Report," Trump complained on Friday morning. "This was an illegal & conflicted investigation in search of a crime," he lied.
Trump insisted, "Russian Collusion was nothing more than an excuse by the Democrats for losing an Election" and concluded, "THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO A PRESIDENT AGAIN!"
The tirade joins the seemingly never-ending torrent of self-pity from Trump related to the ongoing investigation of his campaign's involvement with Russian operatives seeking to influence the election's outcome.
It follows an unusually bipartisan Congressional vote backing a resolution that said Mueller's office should publicly release the full findings of its investigation.
The resolution passed 420-0, with four Republicans voting present.
"This report must see the light of day, must be available to the American public for a catharsis that will allow us to start with the facts, understand what happened and begin to rebuild the faith of the American people," said Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT).
As Trump was tweeting his latest attempt to short-circuit the investigation and obstruct justice, it was reported that his former campaign aide is continuing to cooperate with prosecutors and investigators.
Rick Gates "continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations," said his attorneys in a statement.
Gates had access to Trump's inner circle all the way through Election Day and was privy to information at the highest levels of the campaign, including from Trump himself. In February 2018, he pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including conspiring against the United States and lying to the FBI.
Despite Trump's moaning and whining, many in his inner circle have been indicted, charged with crimes, pleaded guilty, or been convicted. His complaints coupled with a full-court press from his allies, stooges, and propaganda network do not seem to have intimidated or dissuaded Mueller and other investigators.
The investigation continues and America wants to know the extent of Trump's corruption and criminality. None of his whining is going to stop that.
