As former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s explosive interview with 60 Minutes hits the airwaves, President Trump took to Twitter to make it clear that he is definitely not worried, or freaking out, or guilty of anything, and that in fact, he is just out here having A Normal One, as they say online.
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!

To be clear, the president’s tweet is demonstrably false.
It should go without saying, but the Mueller investigation is not "totally conflicted, illegal, and rigged." In fact, nothing in the president's latest tweet is really accurate.

The way the tweet breaks down into gibberish as he attempts to both exonerate himself and somehow shunt the “blame” on to the Democrats is evidence enough that the president’s rational faculties are shutting down and wires are being crossed as panic begins to rise to the surface.
And panic he should, since Deputy Director McCabe revealed to the public that he believes the president fired him because he opened a case against him — meaning his firing could be obstruction of justice — and dropped the bombshell that the Special Counsel has records of all their conversations.
“I believe I was fired because I opened a case against the President of the United States,” says McCabe, who lost his job just a day before he would have been able to collect his full pension. He is considering suing the government over this. https://t.co/9oNEXZi0GR pic.twitter.com/MzmP4ej7XW

He also revealed that Trump ignored his own intelligence officials in favor of what Vladimir Putin told him.
Former FBI director McCabe explains that Trump believed Putin over US intel about NK missiles: "Intel officials [told Trump his position] was not consistent with any of the intel our govt possesses. To which POTUS replied, 'I don't care. I believe Putin.'" pic.twitter.com/qRXcAImAFm

That certainly makes it sounds likes there’s a lot more than just “collusion” between Trump and Russia going on — and with tweets like this, he might as well tattoo “I’m Guilty” across his forehead.
The Special Counsel’s report CANNOT come soon enough!
