Trump claims ‘bad blood’ with Russia caused by ‘corrupt’ Mueller probe

Washington (United States) (AFP) – US President Donald Trump angrily blamed special investigator Robert Mueller for bad relations with Russia Wednesday, pillorying his probe as “Fake & Corrupt.”

In a series of Twitter broadsides, Trump offered his toughest rhetoric on Russia to date, but also took aim at Mueller for preventing better ties.

“Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama,” Trump claimed.
