"Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist!" Trump tweeted, adding that "never in U.S. history has anyone lied or defrauded voters" like the Connecticut Democrat.
"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?" the president tweeted.
Blumenthal appeared earlier in the morning on CNN's "New Day." During that interview, the senator said he was "concerned" the Department of Justice is "weaponizing...laws" after it announced a crackdown on leaks.
