31 "Mueller Monday" Tweets That'll Have You Anxiously Awaiting Those Russia Probe Indictments
Reports over the weekend pointed to possible arrests on Monday tied to the Russia investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, with suspects being taken into custody. Since then, the mood in Washington, D.C., as described in national media outlets, is one of "dread" and "expectation." But on Twitter it seems to be just the expectation, even perhaps excitement for some of the thousands of users tweeting the hashtag "Mueller Monday" in anticipation of the big day.
President Trump seemed to try to deflect over the weekend by taking to Twitter also. "The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R's ... are now fighting back like never before," Trump sent out on Sunday. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING!" He did not use the hashtag.
NBC News, which first reported the coming indictment, did not report who the target or targets would be, just that a federal grand jury had approved of the charges. That didn't stop people from revving their engines to turn on cable news in the morning Monday. The majority of "Mueller Monday" tweets read like what kids would post the night before Santa comes.
