After unnamed members of Robert Mueller’s team pushed back against Attorney General William Barr’s summary of their boss’s report, President Donald Trump had heard enough.
Trump sent out a scathing tweet, accusing them all of “illegally” leaking information to the media.
Looks like Bob Mueller’s team of 13 Trump Haters & Angry Democrats are illegally leaking information to the press while the Fake News Media make up their own stories with or without sources – sources no longer matter to our corrupt & dishonest Mainstream Media, they are a Joke!

Trump was referring to a recent move by Mueller team members, who, while not identifying themselves, claimed there was “acute” information contained in the special counsel’s report suggesting that Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice.
In a report by the New York Times, the officials stated that the evidence against Trump was “more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated.”
That story had a butterfly effect throughout the House and the Senate for Democrat lawmakers, who haven’t backed down.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has continued to push the narrative of “open collusion,” and disgraced Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has continued to tell anyone that will listen that he was justified in everything he said about collusion — even though the Mueller report fully exonerated Trump.
More Media Twisting
Trump has repeatedly said that the decision to turn over the report lies in the hands of Attorney General Barr — and nobody else.
Indeed, Trump has openly stated that if Barr wants to turn over the document in full, he can. And if Barr wants to redact it, that’s up to him, too.
However, Trump has also rightly asserted that the Democrats will “never” be satisfied.
The media has taken twisted this statement to make it seem as though Trump is walking back his initial statements about releasing the report, but he is not.
The president’s point was that no matter how many investigations or no matter how many reports, Democrats will never stop this witch hunt against him.
And Trump’s point was proven correct when the rash of investigations was announced in the House after Mueller’s report was submitted.
Dems struck out on collusion and obstruction, so now they will pull at every loose thread they find in an effort to remove Trump from office. What a shame.
