“It was an illegal investigation. It was started illegally. Everything about it was crooked,” Trump claimed. “This was an attempted coup. This was an attempted takedown of a president, and we beat them. We beat them,” the message reads.

Earlier, Mueller finished his investigation and submitted some 400-page report to Barr.
“The attorney general then released a letter saying the investigation did not find a conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign, and that Mueller did not reach a conclusion about whether the president may have tried to obstruct justice during the probe,” the news agency reported.
Since May 2017, ex-FBI Head Robert Mueller headed the investigation of alleged ties of Donald Trump’s entourage with Russia and Moscow’s interference in the U.S. elections. Within this probe, ex-Advisor of the U.S. President Michael Flynn pleaded guilty for giving false testimony to FBI about meetings with the Russian Ambassador and made a plea deal.
