Sen. Richard Blumenthal Fires Back at Trump: ‘Your Bullying Won’t Work Now…No One is Above the Law’

Richard Blumenthal

Senator Richard Blumenthal fired back at Donald Trump on Monday after Trump called him “a phony Vietnam con artist.”

Blumenthal appeared earlier this morning on CNN’s New Day (above) to talk about the White House’s crackdown on leaks, warning of the danger of “weaponizing” the Justice Dept. for “personal end.”

Tweeted Trump:

“Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist! Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal. He told stories about his Vietnam battles and…….conquests, how brave he was, and it was all a lie. He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child. Now he judges collusion?”

Blumenthal responded on Twitter, saying, “Mr. President: Your bullying hasn’t worked before and it won’t work now. No one is above the law….This issue isn’t about me – it’s about the Special Counsel’s independence and integrity.”
