President Donald Trump complained that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was a waste of time and said it’s “time to turn the tables” on those responsible for starting the investigation.

In a tweet Friday, Trump said it’s time to “bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even Spying or Treason. This should never happen again!” The comment followed a tweet earlier in the day that called the probe an “Illegally Started Hoax.”
