President Donald Trump shared with reporters outside the White House that he has been the victim of an “attempted coup” designed to remove him from office when placed under the Mueller probe.
“It was an illegal investigation. It was started illegally. Everything about it was crooked,” Trump shared adding that the allegations had been brought by “people that truly hated Donald Trump.”
“This was an attempted coup,” Trump exclaimed. “This was an attempted takedown of a president, and we beat them.”
Democrats had long been hoping to impeach President Trump, using the findings of the Mueller report to do so. However, the report has largely exonerated Trump of the accusation that he or his campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 elections.
