Trump urges Republicans to ‘DO SOMETHING!’ as D.C. awaits first arrest in Mueller probe
President accuses Democrats of ‘Witch Hunt for evil politics’
President Donald Trump, in a series of tweets Sunday, again denied any collusion with Russia during the presidential election, and called on Republicans to “DO SOMETHING!” against his political opponents, as Washington awaited the announcement of exactly who has reportedly been charged in special counsel Robert Mueller’s election-meddling probe.
“Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier,” Trump said. “Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia ‘collusion,’ which doesn’t exist. The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R’s are now fighting back like never before. There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING!”
The tweets came after reports emerged Friday that a federal grand jury has issued a sealed indictment connected with Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling. An arrest could come as soon as Monday, reports said.
On Sunday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, one of Trump’s earliest supporters, said that those under investigation by Mueller “should be concerned.” While Christie said leaks about the sealed indictment could undermine the probe’s credibility, he sees no reason why Mueller should resign, as some top Republicans have urged.
“I’ve not yet seen anything that makes me think he must step down, that there’s an absolutely indisputable conflict,” Christie told CNN.
Separately, a new Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll released Sunday found the president’s approval rating has fallen to an all-time low since he took office, at just 38%, with 58% disapproving of the job he is doing.
