A Massachusetts congressman cast chronicled doubt Thursday on President Trump’s claim that he is the casualty of the “single greatest witch hunt” in U.S. History.

Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton, a Marine veteran and Harvard University graduate, tweeted that the place where he grew up might don’t think so:

Twenty individuals were executed amid the Salem witch trails in the 1690s, and another five died in prison.

 

Trump’s claim was in light of the naming of a special counsel to the investigation into his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia’s election interference.

 

“This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!” Trump tweeted earlier Thursday, adding no special counsel was ever appointed for “all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration.”

 

The White House has already demanded that there is no requirement for a special counsel regarding the 2016 election, and Trump wants to see existing Russian probes over and done with.
