If I win-I am going to instruct my AG to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation bc there's never been anything like your lies.

As Twitchy told you, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel in the investigation into Russia’s alleged involvement in the 2016 election. The announcement had many wondering how Trump would react.
SHOT: Trump fires Comey, using Rosenstein memo as partial justification.
CHASER: Rosenstein appoints Comey ally Mueller as special counsel.

And that’s what Trump gets for screwing around with Rod Rosenstein.

Pretty pithy considering what’s at stake.
Trump statement is pretty hinged, as opposed to unhinged.

Some are speculating that it doesn’t accurately represent Trump’s true feelings on the subject.

@ABC He didn't write that, his staff wrote the very controlled statement. Trump is dying to tweet what he REALLY feel 😂

@ZekeJMiller It's only a matter of time before he chews through the restraints and gets back on his phone.
