President Donald Trump ripped into Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., calling him "a phony Vietnam con artist."

Trump's attack came in a series of tweets posted by the president on Monday morning.

Trump's comments follow a television interview by Blumenthal, who raised the possibility the president could be indicted in connection with the Russia investigation.

Last Thursday, Blumenthal had said on MSNBC that special prosecutor Robert Mueller's impaneling of a grand jury could lead to the "indictment of the highest-ranking official in the United States."

And on Monday, in discussing the Justice Department's investigation into leaks, he added: "Government officials who break the law by disclosing classified information, endangering national security and violating criminal laws certain should be pursued and prosecuted. But I'm very concerned the Department of Justice is weaponizing thee laws for its personal and political ends and specifically for the White House's purposes."
