President Trump on Friday unleashed a flurry of early-morning tweets aimed at special counsel Robert Mueller ahead of an expected filing later in the day concerning the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

In a series of messages, Trump took aim at Mueller and the expected report that could shed more light on Mueller's investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

Michael Cohen to Plead Guilty to Charge in Mueller Investigation

Michael Cohen to Plead Guilty to Charge in Mueller Investigation Mr. Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, made a surprise appearance on Thursday morning in a Manhattan courtroom to plead guilty to a new criminal charge.

President Donald Trump on Saturday fired his first salvo against special counsel Robert Mueller since former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort entered a plea deal with Trump tweeted. "Highly conflicted Bob Mueller & the 17 Angry Democrats are using this Phony issue to hurt us in the Midterms.

Mueller has an interest in creating the illusion of objectivity around his investigation.” Paul Manafort worked for Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other highly prominent and respected political leaders. Trump needs a bad guy and Mueller is it. Not that I don’t think Mueller isn’t a heavily bent

He also targeted former FBI director James Comey, calling Comey and Mueller "best friends."

"Robert Mueller and Leakin' Lyin' James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest," Trump tweeted. "And bye the way, wasn't the woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi (who I do not know) in charge of "legal" at the corrupt Clinton Foundation? A total Witch Hunt..."

"....Will Robert Mueller's big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report," Trump continued in a subsequent tweet. "Will Andrew Weissman's horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report. He wrongly destroyed people's lives, took down great companies, only to be........"

The president then targeted former presidential opponent Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, before lashing out at a cadre of other political opponents.

Trump's latest attacks come following news that his former White House national security adviser, Michael Flynn, could be up for a lighter jail sentence due to his cooperation with the Mueller investigation on a number of investigations.

The tweets also came hours after a similar tirade Thursday night, aimed at the Mueller probe, which questioned whether an associate of his former adviser Roger Stone had been "forced to lie" by federal prosecutors.

The president and his allies have long characterized the special counsel probe as a "witch hunt" and a "hoax" despite a number of convictions and guilty pleas handed down so far in the investigation.


Trump’s latest tweets cross clear lines, experts say: Obstruction of justice and witness tampering.
George Conway and others suggest that Trump's tweets might be obstruction. Here's what we know.
