President Donald Trump Wednesday railed about Robert Mueller's upcoming testimony and his investigation while accusing the special counsel of breaking the law by eliminating emails and texts shared between ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok and his romantic partner, former FBI attorney Lisa Page.
"He terminated all the stuff between Strzok and Page," the president told Fox Business' "Mornings with Maria" host Maria Bartiromo. "Robert Mueller terminated their text messages...and that is illegal. That is a crime."
The comments came after Bartiromo asked Trump, during the wide-ranging, 45-minute telephone interview, about his future plans for the economy should he win the 2020 election.
"Let me tell you, I have done great on the economy," said Trump. "I have done great with the military...I have done great with everything. Here is what is unfair. I've had a 24-7, a phony witch hunt. A disgusting, phony witch hunt."
He added that a "normal person" could not have tolerated the attacks he's suffered over the past two-and-a-half years from "a phony, dishonest, crooked group of people" and intelligence agencies attacking him.
Trump said he believes there will be accountability through Attorney General William Barr, but meanwhile, "they spied on my campaign."
He also railed on Strzok and Page, calling them "stupid lovers," with him "trying to show what a big man he is" and her saying back to him "'oh, yes, darling, yes darling'" in their texts about him.
He added that he thinks it's "incredible" his poll ratings are at 51 percent, and that the "media is "dishonestly stone-cold crooked" with their coverage of him.
Trump also accused Democrats of holding meetings in a "back room" where they "laugh" about what they are getting away with when it concerns him.
"Maria, it is a con job," he commented.
