(CNSNews.com) - As speculation mounts about what Robert Mueller and his investigators are up to -- almost two years into the Trump-Russia investigation -- President Trump is drawing his own conclusions.
In two tweets on Thursday, he wrote:
The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t care how many lives the (sic) ruin. These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!
Several hours later, he sent two more tweets on the same subject:
Universities will someday study what highly conflicted (and NOT Senate approved) Bob Mueller and his gang of Democrat thugs have done to destroy people. Why is he protecting Crooked Hillary, Comey, McCabe, Lisa Page & her lover, Peter S, and all of his friends on the other side?
The only “Collusion” is that of the Democrats with Russia and many others. Why didn’t the FBI take the Server from the DNC? They still don’t have it. Check out how biased Facebook, Google and Twitter are in favor of the Democrats. That’s the real Collusion!
The Washington Times reported on Wednesday that incoming House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), a determined Trump foe, is planning to recall a number of witnesses who already have testified in the Trump-Russia probe.
“We are going to need to ruthlessly prioritize on the intel committee which investigative threads we go down,” Schiff told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.
Trump's Twitter tirade comes as Democrats and some Republicans are trying to bring up legislation protecting the Mueller investigation from potential interference by Trump.
On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he doesn't think such legislation is necessary.
"I mean, there's been no indication -- as you can imagine, I've talked to the president fairly often -- no indication that the Mueller investigation will not be allowed to finish. And it should be allowed to finish.
"We know how the president feels about the Mueller investigation, but he's never said he wants to shut it down. I've never heard anybody down there say they want to shut it down. I think it's in no danger, and so I don't think any legislation's necessary."
Speaking to CNN on Thursday morning, incoming House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said no one knows what the Mueller team is up to, except for court filings made by his team.
"I certainly worry that the Acting Attorney General Whitaker was put there for the express purpose to be a hatchet man to sabotage this investigation," Nadler said.
Democrats insist that Acting AG Matthew Whitaker should recuse himself from the Mueller investigation, as former Attorney General Jeff Sessions did, because he has publicly commented on it and thus "pre-judged" the outcome, critics say.
The Washington Times reported on Thursday that based on a new court filing yesterday, the Mueller probe could go on for several more months. "Prosecutors say they’re not ready for Trump campaign aide Rick Gates to be sentenced because he is continuing to cooperate with “several ongoing investigations.” And they’re asking a federal judge to give them until mid-January to offer another update about his case," the newspaper reported.
