President Donald Trump attacked Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Twitter again Wednesday morning in defiance of Republican warnings.

In a series of tweets over the weekend, Trump viciously attacked Mueller by name for the first time, suggesting that he is preparing to fire him and end the Russia investigation before a final conclusion is reached.

Trump’s attacks resulted in condemnation from several high-profile Republicans, who strongly defended Mueller and warned Trump that continuing his effort to undermine or fire him is unacceptable.

“I agree with the President’s lawyers that Bob Mueller ought to be allowed to finish his job,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Tuesday.

“I think he was an excellent appointment. I think he will go wherever the facts lead him and I think he will have great credibility with the American people when he reaches the conclusion of his investigation. So, I have a lot of confidence in him…I don’t think Bob Mueller is going anywhere. I think there is widespread feeling, and the President’s lawyers obviously agree, that he ought to be allowed to finish the job. He is a thoroughly credible individual.”

McConnell’s defense of Mueller echoed earlier statements by Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

“The only reason that Mr. Mueller could be dismissed is for cause, Senator Graham said on Sunday. “I see no cause when it comes to Mr. Mueller…I pledge to the American people, as a Republican, to make sure that Mr. Mueller can continue to do his job without any interference,”

Despite the warnings, Trump attacked Mueller again anyway by repeating something Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said on Fox News Wednesday morning, complete with spelling errors. Apparently, Trump doesn’t know the difference between “counsel” and “council,” the former of which would be the correct usage in this case.

It should be pointed out that Dershowitz has no access to the investigation. He has not seen any of the evidence Mueller has gathered nor is he a part of Mueller’s team. His statement is purely his opinion, and it’s a harmful opinion at that because Trump is repeating it as if it’s fact.

Clearly, there was probable cause or an investigation would not have been started in the first place. Plus, the investigation has already resulted in 13 indicted Russians and three admissions of guilt and plea deals by three former Trump campaign officials. In addition, a fourth Trump campaign official, Paul Manafort, has been indicted but is taking his chances in court. He faces life in prison if a jury finds him guilty.

It’s also clear that Russia did interfere with the 2016 Election, and it is up to Mueller to seek the whole truth even if it means nailing Trump for collusion and obstruction of justice or clearing him. Either way, the investigation should be allowed to continue until it is completed. And Trump and his allies should stop trying to undermine it. Because constantly attacking Mueller and the investigation makes Trump look guilty.
