- President tries to rebrand Mueller investigation as ‘Spygate’
- Top DoJ officials to meet Republican congressional leaders
Donald Trump said the investigation into Russian collusion during the 2016 election “could be one of the biggest political scandals in history” as he dubbed the investigation into election inference “Spygate”.
In a series of Twitter messages on Wednesday Trump renewed his offensive against the investigation as a “witch-hunt” by the “criminal deep state”. His statements came only days after he demanded an investigation into any government surveillance of his campaign – something the justice department later agreed to.
