President Donald Trump claimed the special counsel probe of his campaign ties to Russia was “totally unconstitutional” in one of his most outrageous tweets yet.

The president claimed Monday morning that he had the “absolute right” to pardon himself, and he followed up that baseless argument by questioning the constitutionality of the special counsel probe.

“The appointment of the Special Councel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL!” Trump tweeted, misspelling “counsel” as he has repeatedly done on social media. “Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!”

The president later posted the same message again, but with corrected spelling.
