Trump Lashes Out at 'Single Greatest Witch Hunt' After Special Counsel Named

President Trump is calling the Justice Department’s federal investigation into his campaign’s potential ties to Russia a “witch hunt.” Trump reacted to the DOJ’s naming of ex-FBI director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to lead the investigation on Twitter Thursday.

He said, “With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel appointed!” Teddy Goff -- former digital strategist for Hillary Clinton during her campaign -- pointed to the spelling error in the tweet, writing: He really has trouble with the word "counsel." While Trump did not go into detail about the alleged “illegal acts” he referenced… He did go on to write, “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!” Mueller’s appointment was announced Wednesday.

He’ll lead the probe into whether the president’s campaign collaborated with Russia to influence the November election.

Meanwhile, the President will leave this week for his first foreign trip and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright hopes he leaves his twitter habit behind.

I hope there’s not one single tweet about anything during the 9 days he’s gone
