Trump first described himself as the victim of a "witch hunt" on Twitter on Thursday morning, a day after the Justice Department appointed a special counsel to investigate possible collusion between Trump associates and the Russian government to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.
A fundraising letter titled "MORE SABOTAGE" begins with the 45th president writing: "What you're seeing in the news is a WITCH HUNT".
He wasn't done yet, as he tweeted a couple minutes ago, "This is the greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history".
"Democrat hacks posing as journalists and unelected bureaucrats have incited a witch hunt to try and obstruct the American voters' agenda: This is a sad moment for our republic", wrote the man who used to be a Democrat and received 2.9 million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton. Considered one of the state's greatest mistakes, MA ended up issuing an official apology for the witch trials and declaring the 20 victims innocent. Trump fits the MO of the hunter, not the hunted!'

"To me what's interesting about Trump's tweet is the use of the witch-hunt analogy, because it's a classic way in which somebody implicitly claims, 'I am being unfairly targeted, ' because we all believe the people who were accused of witchcraft in 1692 were unfairly targeted", she said.
Rep. Moulton was applauded for the tweet, which has been liked over 353,000 times. It's not an intrepid investigator finding the truth - it's someone raising false charges.
Moulton responds to Trump's claims of a media "witch hunt". Those included a report by The Washington Post on Friday that the ongoing law enforcement investigation has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest.
