President Trump on Wednesday again went after Robert Mueller's investigation.

Quoting Alan Dershowitz, President Trump on Wednesday continued to go after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the 2016 election interference.
"'Special Council is told to find crimes, whether a crime exists or not. I was opposed to the selection of Mueller to be Special Council. I am still opposed to it. I think President Trump was right when he said there never should have been a Special Council appointed because there was no probable cause for believing that there was any crime, collusion or otherwise, or obstruction of justice!'  So stated by Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz," Trump tweeted.

The Wednesday tweets follow Trump's other recent posts on the matter.
"Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION! Trump wrote in a tweet on Sunday.
"The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!" the president tweeted on Saturday.
These tweets have renewed speculation about Trump potentially dismissing Mueller, leading to warnings by Democrats as well as Republicans.
"If he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency, because we're a rule-of-law nation," Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN over the weekend.
