President Trump on Monday renewed his attacks on Robert Mueller, days before the former special counsel is set to testify about the Russia investigation during a highly anticipated congressional hearing.

In a pair of tweets, Trump repeated his claim that Mueller is "highly conflicted" and accused him of leading a "ridiculous Witch Hunt." The president for more than two years has leveled both charges in an attempt to undermine Mueller's credibility.

"Highly conflicted Robert Mueller should not be given another bite at the apple. In the end it will be bad for him and the phony Democrats in Congress who have done nothing but waste time on this ridiculous Witch Hunt," Trump tweeted.

"I've deleted an earlier tweet I intended ironically, but that some took as factual regarding Fox news coverage of Mueller's testimony," Vance tweeted. "My apologies to anyone I confused. I don't like to delete tweets but that seems a better course than unintentionally misinforming people.
