Trump repeatedly contradicts himself about Mueller’s report

President Donald Trump started his week by retweeting himself multiple times within the 5 a.m. Eastern Time hour on Monday.

Trump’s tweets highlighted the inconsistent narrative that the president has pushed about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“For two years all the Democrats talked about was the Mueller Report, because they knew that it was loaded up with 13 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, later increased to 18,” he wrote. “But despite the bias, when the Report came out, the findings were No Collusion and facts that led to No Obstruction.”

He continued, “The Dems were devastated – after all this time and money spent ($40,000,000), the Mueller Report was a disaster for them. But they want a Redo, or Do Over. They are even bringing in @CNN sleazebag attorney John Dean. Sorry, no Do Overs – Go back to work!”

Trump was referring to a hearing held Monday by the House Judiciary Committee to address the “lessons learned” from Mueller’s final report, a redacted version of which was made public in April. The hearing featured a panel of experts, including John Dean, former White House counsel under President Richard Nixon. Dean pleaded guilty to obstruction in connection with the Watergate scandal, and in his testimony, he pointed to several similarities between that case and the current case for impeachment against Trump.

….No Obstruction. The Dems were devastated – after all this time and money spent ($40,000,000), the Mueller Report was a disaster for them. But they want a Redo, or Do Over. They are even bringing in @CNN sleazebag attorney John Dean. Sorry, no Do Overs – Go back to work!
