Trump Takes Aim at Blumenthal on Twitter Over Comments on Russia Investigation

  • Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut brought up potential'collusion in an interview Monday

Blumenthal, a former prosecutor, mentioned "potential collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during an appearance on CNN's 'New Day'.

In a flurry of early morning tweets Monday, Trump says "the Trump base far bigger & stronger than ever before (despite some phony Fake News polling)".

Mueller issued grand jury subpoenas in the Trump Russia probe.

The tweets came shortly after the Democratic senator appeared on CNN, where he spoke about the ongoing investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 election. Richard Blumenthal for his Vietnam war "lies" after Blumenthal brought up "potential collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia Monday. Richard Blumenthal. He told stories about his Vietnam battles and conquests, how fearless he was and it was all a lie.

"He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child", Trump continued. Now he judges collusion?'




Back in 2010, Blumenthal acknowledged that he misspoke when he previously used language that suggested he served in Vietnam. On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the agency will be aggressively investigating leaks to the media.

Blumenthal responded to the president's tweets by saying that bullying won't work and that "no one is above the law".

A New York Times investigation found that Blumenthal received at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and records show he enlisted in the Marine Reserve - a move that "virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam", according to the Times. In response, Trump said during a luncheon with senators that Blumenthal had misrepresented Gorsuch. At one point, Blumenthal was asked if he's anxious that the Trump-Russia scandal might distract Democrats from focusing on issues that affect Americans more directly, like the economy.

"Protecting Robert Mueller's independence is vital to his credibility and capability to uncover the truth about criminality at the highest levels", Blumenthal said.

Like the CT senator, Trump also received five military deferments that allowed him to escape service in the Vietnam War.
