Trump Rages That Mueller’s Indictments Are Fake News

The Associated Press reports:

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to respond to the indictment of Paul Manafort, his former campaign chairman, and others.

Concerned that the president may fight back after Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling led to two indictments and a guilty plea for his former advisers Monday, top Democrats laid down a marker for the president, who earlier in the year criticized Mueller and the probe.

“The president must not, under any circumstances and in any way, interfere with the special counsel’s work,” said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. “If he does, Congress must respond swiftly, unequivocally, and in a bipartisan way to ensure that the investigation continues and the truth — the whole truth — comes out.”
