Essentially, it is a targeted attack against one person, for reasons that are not necessarily tangible. Trying to find someone to target and humiliate.

What a criminal says when cornered by the law.

When Donald Trump doesn't like being accused of what he has done, he often deflects to claiming that Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama has done something wrong. When people get bored of this, he instead refers to the ongoing investigation of himself as a "witch hunt". The "witch hunt" has resulted in lots of indictments and guilty pleas for various colluders.

The term "Witch hunt" keeps changing meaning. The term originally used to refer to witch hunting during the medieval times, when innocent women accused of being "witches" were burnt or drowned. Later the term was used about the practice of accusing people of something they hadn't done. Now Donald Trump uses this term to refer to the ongoing FBI investigation and the juridical process against people connected to Trump.
