As President Trump is leaving no stone unturned to deflect people’s attention from the probe into his alleged ties with Russia, he has once again brought the discourse back to the emails case of Hillary Clinton who lost the election over a year ago.

In a series of tweets today, Trump said many people are asking what the “Justice” Department is going to do about the fact that Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 emails after receiving a subpoena from the U.S. Congress. Trump also ridiculed the role of Justice Department by putting the word “Justice” in double quotes and saying, “No justice!”

Trump compared Hillary Clinton with the fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn who is now facing investigation by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller who is spearheading an exclusive probe to find the truth behind Trump-Russia ties that might have helped Trump win 2016 presidential race fraudulently.

“So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday “interrogation” with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times…and nothing happens to her. Rigged system, or just a double standard?” Trump asked in his freewheeling language.

He added that he had to fire General Flynn because he lied to Vice President Mike Pence and the FBI. “He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!” Trump said with his usual exclamation mark to end his tweet.

Trump also called the Russia probe a witch hunt while admiring ABC News’ decision to suspend its investigative reporter Brian Ross for four weeks for his incorrect report on Trump-Russia case.

Ross had reported that Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that Donald Trump told him to contact the Russians during his presidential campaign while Trump had given him that instruction as president-elect and not as the presidential candidate.
