President Donald Trump on Monday issued a frantic and misspelled tweet attacking Democrats and special counsel Robert Mueller.

Despite the fact that he was implicated by his own former attorney in a felony on Friday, Trump remained defiant by insisting that he did nothing wrong.

“Democrats can’t find a Smocking (sic) Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony,” Trump wrote, apparently quoting a Fox News segment. “No Smocking Gun… No Collusion.”

He then added, “that’s because there was NO COLLUSION.”

After this, Trump attacked former “fixer” Michael Cohen, who said in a court filing that Trump directed him to commit a felony campaign finance violation when he paid off adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal in exchange for their silence about alleged affairs with Trump.

“So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution, which it was not (but even if it was, it is only a CIVIL CASE, like Obama’s – but it was done correctly by a lawyer and there would not even be a fine. Lawyer’s liability if he made a mistake, not me),” Trump wrote. “Cohen just trying to get his sentence reduced. WITCH HUNT!”
