Trump on his alleged ties to Russia: this is greatest witch hunt
US President Donald Trump dismissed the ongoing investigation into his alleged ties to Russia as a "witch hunt," one day after the Justice Department named former FBI Director Robert Mueller as the special counsel in charge of the investigation.
"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel appointed!" Trump posted on his Twitter page.
Trump also complained that no similar steps were ever taken to police the last two Democratic administrations
"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" he noted.
