Trump rails against 'witch hunt' amid special counsel appointment

What do Americans think about calls to impeach Trump?

President Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning to rail against the investigation into allegations of Russian collusion with his campaign, hours after a special counsel was named to oversee the probe. 

Trump deployed his characteristic social media bombast to take his unvarnished response directly to voters, elaborating on the staid written statement issued the night before that denied any collusion with Kremlin-linked officials. 

“With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel (sic) appointed!” Trump tweeted. “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!” 

Trump fired back ahead of a briefing Thursday afternoon for all U.S. senators being held by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The senior DOJ official, who made the call to appoint a special counsel, is set to brief lawmakers on Trump's controversial decision last week to fire FBI Director James Comey, a move that escalated calls on Capitol Hill for an outside counsel.
