"Never in USA history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal", Trump continued. The Democratic Connecticut senator spoke on CNN's "New Day" about the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation and how the Department of Justice's crackdown on leaks is concerning.
Blumenthal came under criticism for remarks he made about having "served" in Vietnam despite never leaving the United States when was in the Marines.
Without a "free press" the American people would not have known about the Trump campaign and transition team's meetings with Russian officials like former Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak, Blumenthal said.
"Empaneling the grand jury shows that Bob Mueller is pursuing this potential wrongdoing by the Russians, the attack on our democracy, seriously and diligently - and there is no minimizing or underestimating that attack by the Russians", Blumenthal said.
The president took three tweets to criticize Blumenthal.
"That investigation must be pursued". Reporters like Phil Elliott, a political correspondent for Time, wrote in response to Trump's tweets that Blumenthal was indeed a Marine reserve member who received military deferments while serving stateside. But unlike Blumenthal, Trump has never claimed to have served in Vietnam. "Now he judges collusion?"
Though Blumenthal conceded in 2010 that he might have misspoken about his service, he was confronted with the controversy this past May when he first raised questions about Comey's firing.
Trump received his own five deferments for military service during the Vietnam War. Blumenthal said Gorsuch, who was confirmed to the Supreme Court, had told him that he found the president's attacks on the judiciary "disheartening" and "demoralizing".
"Protecting Robert Mueller's independence is vital to his credibility and capability to uncover the truth about criminality at the highest levels", Blumenthal said. The senator admitted in 2010 to misrepresenting his military service after saying he had been "in" Vietnam.
