The president's tweets appeared to be a response to reports that Department of Justice special counselRobert Mueller has expanded his investigation into Russian election interference to include whether Trump has obstructed justice. The Washington Post first reported the news on Wednesday evening. ABC News has not independently confirmed the report.
The president questioned why “Crooked H” is not being investigated in the tweets.
Clinton has previously said that she handed over all of her work emails to investigators, totaling over 55,000 printed pages, according to the former secretary of state.
Trump’s accusation that Clinton had her husband meet with the attorney general “days before she was cleared,” refers to a June 27, 2016 meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch aboard a private plane while Hillary Clinton was still under federal investigation.
Following the meeting, Lynch said the meeting was “primarily social,” but many Republicans were concerned the meeting indicated the Justice Department was not completely independent in their review of Clinton’s use of a private email server.
