President Donald Trump early Wednesday declared his poll numbers would be much higher if it was not for special counsel Robert Mueller's "illegal witch hunt" investigation into him and Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.

"Without the ILLEGAL Witch Hunt, my poll numbers, especially because of our historically 'great' economy, would be at 65%," Trump tweeted. "Too bad! The greatest Hoax in American History."

According to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released Tuesday, just 38% approve of Trump's overall job performance, compared to 41% who approved of him in a May 2 poll. In addition, 71% said they rate the economy as excellent or good, but just 48% approved of how Trump handles the economy.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Trump posted several tweets complaining Democrats had contributed to "two years of an expensive and comprehensive Witch Hunt" and they now want a "DO OVER. In other words, the Witch Hunt continues."

The tweets come as more Democrats call for impeachment proceedings to begin after Trump blocked his former White House lawyer from testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who prefers a more methodical approach to Trump, will meet with a small group of the House Democratic caucus to discuss strategy, as Democrats are pushing her and other leaders to act on impeachment.
