Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) fired back at President Trump on Monday, saying his bullying tactics will not protect him from the ongoing Russia collusion investigation being led by special counsel Robert Mueller.
“Mr. President: Your bullying hasn’t worked before and it won’t work now. No one is above the law,” Blumenthal tweeted.
“This issue isn’t about me – it’s about the Special Counsel’s independence and integrity,” he added.
Trump attacked the Connecticut lawmaker earlier Monday, calling him a “phony Vietnam con artist.”
Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist!
