President Donald Trump on Thursday called the Mueller probe a "coup," and said Hillary Clinton destroyed the lives of people on his presidential campaign.
"This was a coup. This was an attempted overthrow of the United States government," he told host Sean Hannity during an appearance on Fox News.
"We had people coming out to vote from all over this country that are in love with what we're doing. It's called Make America Great Again, and that's what we've done and what we're doing. This was an overthrow, and it's a disgraceful thing. I think it's far bigger than Watergate. I think it's possibly the biggest scandal in political history in this country."
"This was a coup. This wasn't stealing information from an office in the Watergate apartments," he added, referring to the scandal that led to former President Richard Nixon's resignation. "This was an attempted coup. Like a third world country. Inconceivable. I think a lot of information is coming out, and it's coming out fast, much faster than anybody would have thought, and there are a lot of people very nervous about things that are going on."
Trump's phone call into the show came a day after Clinton published a column in The Washington Post calling for Congress to be "deliberate, fair, and fearless," in continuing Mueller's work by holding substantive hearings that build on the report "and fill in its gaps."
