Trump attacks Clinton, as Mueller charges loom

President Trump took to Twitter to attack his former opponent Hillary Clinton as a federal grand jury has approved the first charges in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

In the next day or two, according to CNN, the first arrests could be made in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government.

We don’t yet know who could be charged or what they would be charged with. But it’s a potentially monumental advancement of the probe that has consumed so much of President Trump’s first year in office.

How is Trump, who has dismissed the investigation as “fake news” as often as he can, responding? He spent Sunday morning tweeting about Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

Trump is playing up two counter-scandals that have become favorites in the conservative media: an Obama-era uranium deal involving Russia, and the revelation that Clinton associates paid for a salacious dossier of opposition research on Trump during the 2016 campaign.
