Donald trump criticized the decision of the Ministry of justice to appoint a special Prosecutor to investigate the alleged Russian interference in the American presidential campaign in 2016. The politician said that the attacks on him are the largest in the history of the country “witch-hunt”.
“This is the biggest witch hunt in the face of a politician in American history,” trump wrote on his page on the social network Twitter.
The day before, 17 may, the U.S. justice Department announced the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to the position of special adviser on the investigation of possible influence on the course of the presidential race in the United States and ties Donald trump with Russian officials.
Trump lamented that with all the illegal actions that took place during the election campaign of Hillary Clinton and the actions of the Obama administration, the special Prosecutor was never appointed.
With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & the Obama Administration, there was never a special councel appointed!

An earlier edition of the Washington Post has accused trump that during the negotiations in the White house he handed the Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak some “top secret information” about the group “Islamic state” (banned in Russia). Allegedly the U.S. leader told the diplomats about the intention of terrorists to blow up a passenger plane with a bomb hidden in a laptop.
Responding to criticism, the US President said that he had every right to share with Russia data relating to safety and called the meeting with Lavrov “wonderful”.
In turn, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has called the accusations against trump’s “political schizophrenia”. In his opinion, the political situation in the US under anti-Russian slogans rocking or stupid, or “simply dangerous and unscrupulous people.”
In addition, Putin promised to provide the transcript of a conversation trump with the head of Russian diplomacy “in that case, if the American administration want it.”
