On Wednesday, the United States President Donald Trump has described Robert Mueller’s declaration to Congress on Russian investigation as an “embarrassment” to the nation, jabs at his Democratic rivals for asking the former Special Counsel to appear on Capitol Hill.
President Trump claims that he would not watch the proceedings of the day, but after the first two congressional hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, he had disclosed his feelings.
The US President tweets, “I would like to thank the Democrats for holding this morning’s hearing.”
Referring to the Democratic Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schifee, President Trump said that “now, after 3 hours, Robert Mueller has to subject himself to #ShiftySchiff – an Embarrassment to our Country.”
Grilled by lawmakers on his 2-years probe into Russia’s influence in 2016 President Election, Mr. Mueller said that he didn’t vindicated the US President, but one more declined to tell lawmakers if the US President has committed a crime.
Ahead of Donald Trump’s tweet, his spokesperson Stephanie Grisham analyzed it.
Ms. Grisham said that “the last three hours have been an epic embarrassment for the Democrats,” halfway through the long day of hearings for the former Special Counsel.
“Expect more of the same in the second half,” it added.
