Trump goes bonkers in afternoon Twitter rant about Clinton and Russian Federation

18 June 2017, 01:40 | Colleen Roy

"A follow-up tweet from the president said "Crooked H" destroyed phones, "'bleached' emails", and Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch days before Hillary was "cleared" of any wrongdoing in the scandal involving her private email server.

Presumably, the president is asking why his campaign is being investigated for possible collusion with Russian Federation in their interference on the 2016 presidential election, but Clinton is not being investigated. He also raised questions about Clinton's family and, quote - "Dems dealing with Russian Federation".

The obstruction of justice investigation into Trump began days after Comey was sacked on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter, the Washington Post said.

Along with "Killary", which came into existence over the Benghazi scandal that many held then-Secretary of State Clinton responsible for, "Crooked Hillary" was quickly adopted by her detractors during the contentious campaign leading up to the 2016 presidential election after Trump repeatedly coined it.

"Mueller is setting up a dragnet of obstruction, financial questions and every aspect of Trump's life and his associates lives", said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who labeled it "very risky".

The complaints Trump aired Thursday afternoon followed a pair of morning tweets.

On Wednesday night, the latest twist in the story was revealed to be that the president is now under investigation for possible obstruction of justice.

In a pair of earlier tweets, Trump called the investigation "phony" and the "greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history".
