A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 10, 2018
President Trump reacted angrily Monday to news that federal agents had raided the office and home of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen -- calling the action "disgraceful" and describing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation as "an attack on our country."
Before a White House meeting with top military advisers, Trump took several minutes to blast the raid and the Mueller probe.
"It's a disgraceful situation. It's a total witch hunt," said Trump, who claimed that he had "given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel. They continue to just go forward ... and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now. Actually it's much more than that. You could say right after I won the [2016 Republican] nomination it started."
