‘Total bulls**t’: Trump blasts ‘fabricated’ statements in Mueller report

‘Total bulls**t’: Trump blasts ‘fabricated’ statements in Mueller report
US President Donald Trump unleashed scathing remarks about special counsel Robert Mueller’s “crazy” report on Friday, saying it was written by “angry Democrats” and contains statements which are “total bulls**t.”

Trump wrote a series of tweets criticizing the report, which cleared him of any collusion or conspiracy with Russia but stopped short of fully exonerating him. He took specific aim at certain statements in the report which he labeled “fabricated,” “totally untrue,” and “total bulls**t.”

He alleged that some people gave statements to Mueller’s investigators in order to make themselves look good or to make him look bad.

“This was an illegally started hoax that never should have happened,” he added.

Trump left the thread unfinished for a long while on Friday, finally tweeting that it's "now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people."

Less than two hours after Trump’s initial comments, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler subpoenaed the Justice Department for a full, unredacted version of Mueller’s report, as well as its underlying evidence.
