President Trump tweets of ‘witch hunt’ amid ongoing Russia investigation
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is telling his Twitter followers that they are witnessing the “single greatest WITCH HUNT in American history.”
The president didn’t clarify what exactly he was referring to in the early morning tweet, however he has frequently described reports about possible ties between members of his campaign and Russia as a “witch hunt.”
Trump writes, “You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA” — the acronym referring to his campaign slogan, Make America Great Again.
You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA

Earlier Thursday, Trump tweeted that a new report suggesting that special counsel Robert Mueller may investigate him for possible obstruction of justice after he fired FBI Director James Comey is a “phony story.”
