Trump tweets skepticism about Mueller's appointment

President Trump tweeted a quote from former Harvard Law professor and Fox News contributor Alan Dershowitz's appearance on Fox Business' Lou Dobbs Tonight last night expressing doubts about the Justice Department's appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It comes after a tumultuous weekend of personal attacks from Trump against the special counsel.

"'Special Council [sic] is told to find crimes, wether [sic] crimes exist or not. I was opposed the the [sic] selection of Mueller to be Special Council [sic], I still am opposed to it. I think President Trump was right when he said there never should have been a Special Council [sic] appointed because there was no probable cause of believing that there was any crime, collusion or otherwise, or obstruction of justice!' So stated by Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz"
