President Donald Trump on Sunday suggested that investigators on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team should face prison for a political cover-up.
According to a report published by the Daily Mail, Trump echoed sentiments earlier shared by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.
“These guys, the investigators, ought to be in jail,” Trump tweeted. “What they have done, working with the Obama intelligence agencies, is simply unprecedented. This is one of the greatest political hoaxes ever perpetrated on the people of this Country, and Mueller is a coverup. Rush Limbaugh”
Earlier Sunday, Limbaugh said on Fox News that some of Mueller’s counsel should be jailed for what was becoming a mounting cover-up of a silent coup.
“They took it upon themselves to overthrow the election results in 2016,” Limbaugh said, “ignoring the real collusion and conspiracy between Democrats and Republicans to undermine the Trump candidacy and the Trump presidency.”
Later, in Trump’s Twitter feed, he added in his own words:
“The Mueller investigation is totally conflicted, illegal and rigged! Should never have been allowed to begin, except for the Collusion and many crimes committed by the Democrats. Witch Hunt!”
