Trump & Mueller Headed for "Constitutional Confrontation" — Senator Blumenthal

Sen. Richard Blumenthal and President Donald Trump

In recent days, Trump aides have touted a greater discipline brought to the White House by retired Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly, Trump's new chief of staff. "He told stories about his Vietnam battles and...." he wrote in a second tweet.

'He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child. "Now he judges collusion?"

Why has Trump targeted Blumenthal? .

President Donald Trump is discussing North Korea with his secretary of state.

During the early days of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was forced to defend himself from allegations of being in cahoots with Russian Federation. Repeating his attacks, Trump accused Blumenthal of devising "one of the greatest military frauds in US history" and argued the senator "should be investigated for his acts".

The Gunners pushed for an equaliser, with Arsene Wenger sending on Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott for Lacazette and Alex Iwobi. But Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois blazed his kick over the crossbar followed by striker Alvaro Morata also missing.

But Blumenthal's idea appears to have caused immediate backlash from the president.

If you haven't read the President's tweetstorm this morning, then you may have missed the fact that he viciously attacked Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal.

Back in 2010, Blumenthal acknowledged that he misspoke when he previously used language that suggested he served in Vietnam. "I take full responsibility, but I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of military service", said Blumenthal in CT newspaper The Day at the time. He later said he misspoke and meant to say that he was in the Marine Reserve during the Vietnam conflict.

The Judiciary Committee member said it is fine the government takes action against people providing classified information to the press.

"On a few occasions, I have misspoken about my service and I regret that".

Trump himself deferred his military service four times to avoid serving during the Vietnam War, and in 1968 received a medical deferment. Trump's "bone spurs" were not referenced in the health report from Trump's doctor during the presidential campaign. "I would have proudly served", he told ABC News.

Trump doesn't have a lot of room to talk when it comes to military service.

"Mr. President: Your bullying hasn't worked before and it won't work now".

The president took three tweets to criticize Blumenthal.
