President Donald Trump blasted special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation again Wednesday, demanding that Attorney General Jeff Sessions "stop this rigged witch hunt right now."

Trump cited comments made by Alan Dershowitz earlier Wednesday on Fox Business Network's "Mornings With Maria" program. The renowned law professor slammed rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok's involvement in the Russia probe, adding that Mueller is "creating an illusion of objectivity."

Amid his attack on Mueller's probe, Trump also questioned why investigators failed to tell him that his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was under investigation.

Manafort's first trial began Tuesday in Virginia.

Trump returned with another tweet a half hour later, labeling accusation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign "a TOTAL HOAX."

He returned to Twitter an hour later to add a slam against his Democrat opponent in the 2016 election, with a quote attributed to Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen referring to a "smoking gun about a campaign getting dirt on their opponent, it was Hillary Clinton."
