‘This Should NOT Be Allowed…’ Trump Flips Out On Mueller Ahead Of Testimony

President Trump is irate that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller sought a last-minute rule change to his congressional testimony.

Taking to Twitter, the president criticized Mueller for wanting the committee to swear in his lawyer, who Trump called a “long-time Never Trumper.”

“So Robert Mueller has now asked for his long-time Never Trumper lawyer to sit beside him and help with answers,” the president said in the late-night Tuesday tweet. “What’s this all about? His lawyer represented the ‘basement server guy’ who got off free in the Crooked Hillary case. This should NOT be allowed. Rigged Witch Hunt!”

The Washington Examiner reports:

Former special counsel Robert Mueller will be joined in his testimony in front of the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees tomorrow by Aaron Zebley, his chief of staff during his nearly two-year investigation.

Zebley is also the former lawyer for the controversial IT aide to Hillary Clinton who set up her private email server and smashed some of her mobile devices with a hammer.

“Aaron Zebley was the Deputy Special Counsel and had day-to-day oversight of the investigations conducted by the Office,” a spokesman for the special counsel’s office said Tuesday afternoon. “He will accompany Special Counsel Mueller to the Wednesday hearings, as was discussed with the committees more than a week ago.”

Trump added:

The BizPac Review reports congressional Republicans were similarly frustrated with Mueller’s decision:

“Rumor is that Aaron Zebley (Mueller’s Chief of Staff) will be on the witness panel with Mueller,” Freedom Caucus founder Rep. Jim Jordan noted in a tweet Wednesday. “You don’t get to change the rules right before kickoff, especially after a 22 month, $30 million investigation.

Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins issued a similar statement.

“This apparent stunt is unsurprising in light of the Democrats’ repeated attempts to circumvent, misrepresent and flout the rules of procedures governing this committee’s business. If Democrats believe it is the special counsel’ responsibility to testify to his report, they have no ground for outsourcing that duty at the expense of our committee’s integrity.”
