Trump just fired off a panicked avalanche of denial and conspiracy ahead of Mueller hearing

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited and highly anticipated Congressional hearing is being held today, and the President made sure the entire nation knew how on edge he was in his warm-up tweets.

Pulling out all the stops, the President accused Democrats of pinning a “fabricated” crime on him, called the accusations against him “treasonous” and “illegal,” and then demanded to know why Mueller wasn’t investigating them?

The president then pivoted into his newest line of attack against the Special Counsel — that he had somehow violated some “agreement” that Mueller be accompanied by one of his “Democrat” “Never Trump” lawyers.

But knowing that there was nothing to that and desperately grasping for anything to hold on to, he began listing the names of people involved in the various conspiracy theories and concocted pushback narratives that his toadies at FOX and the rest of the conservative media machine repeat over and over in hopes of somehow making them a reality.

In a moment of true delusion, the president appeared to question why Mueller didn’t investigate himself, which tells you all you need to know about the relationship between his accusations and reality.

This is entirely predictable line of response from the president, but he’s much mistaken if he thinks that it’s going to accomplish anything other than broadcast his obvious guilt and his crippling insecurity for the whole world to see.
