U.S President Donald Trump on Monday accused Special Council Robert Mueller of “looking for trouble.”

Mueller, a former director of the FBI from 2001 to 2013, is investigating the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

In a series of tweets, Trump also tagged “angry Democrats”, over the time they were taking to probe into the alleged Trump’s Campaign collusion with the Russians.

“Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Counsel, only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” he tweeted.

“Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone looking for trouble.

“They are enjoying ruining people’s lives and REFUSE to look at the real corruption on the Democrat side – the lies, the firings, the deleted Emails and soooo much more!

“Mueller’s Angry Dems are looking to impact the election. They are a National Disgrace!

“Where’s the Collusion? They made up a phony crime called Collusion, and when there was no Collusion they say there was Obstruction (of a phony crime that never existed).

“If you FIGHT BACK or say anything bad about the Rigged Witch Hunt, they scream Obstruction!”
