Washington [USA], Apr 19 : US President Donald Trump on Friday slammed the Robert Mueller report, alleging that it has been written by "18 angry Democrat Trump haters."
This comes after a redacted version of the report was made public on April 18. The complete report holds the findings of the 22-month long investigation undertaken by Special Counsel Mueller into possible Russian collusion in the 2016 Presidential elections, which propelled Trump into power.
"Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue. Watch out for people that take so-called "notes," when the notes never existed until needed," Trump tweeted.
"Because I never agreed to testify, it was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the "Report" about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad). This was an illegally started hoax that never should have happened, a...," he added.
Attorney General William Barr, to whom Mueller had submitted the complete report upon the culmination of his investigation, had published his conclusions from the report, acquitting Trump of all charges laid down against him by the Democrats. Barr's conclusions were slammed by the Democrats, who right away called for the complete report to be released.
Barr's conclusions strengthened Trump's claim that there was no Russian collusion in the 2016 Trump campaign for the Presidential elections, a point which the incumbent US President tried driving home with a Game of Thrones-inspired graphic on April 18.
Even though a redacted version of it has been released ever since, the Democrats have outlined that there is a stark difference between what Barr wrote and Mueller's findings.
Democrat leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continue pushing for complete transparency, calling Mueller to testify before the House Judiciary Committee "no later than May 23."
