Just two days after his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort pleaded guilty to two federal charges, and made a deal to cooperate with Mueller, Trump went to twitter. Manafort was the fourth former Trump associate to reach a deal with Robert Mueller, the special counsel who led the investigation into possible collusion between Russia and Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. Trump continued to call the investigation a "witch hunt" and that it was illegal. He also furthered his claim that the only collusion with Russia was by Hillary Clinton's campaign.
