US President Donald Trump says he is "Fighting Back" against the Russian Federation probe and warned the "13 Angry Democrats" on the special counsel's team to "just wait 'till the Courts get to see your unrevealed Conflicts of Interest!" In that year, the American people have learned that Mueller's team of lawyers are mostly Democrats, that there is no Donald Trump crime being investigated, that the investigation seemingly has no bounds, and that no evidence has been presented that Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.
"So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were "leaked" to the media. Republicans better get tough and smart before it is too late!"
On Monday morning, the president sent four tweets lambasting the probe, which he called a "witch hunt", including one that highlighted some possible anxiety about how the probe might impact Republicans in the upcoming 2018 election.
Trump had applauded on Friday when a federal judge questioned Mueller's authority in a case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Trump regularly attacks the ongoing investigation, as he did Monday, and has considered firing Mueller - a looming threat that has divided the Republican Party.
Trump's legal team, according to Giuliani, also has a list of demands: They want some topics to be "off-limits", to set a time limit for the interview, and "to know whether the interview would become public, and whether they would have the chance to issue a rebuttal to anything alleged by the special counsel". Trump noted that Page has left the bureau and asked "Why is Peter S still there? Our Country has to get back to Business!"
The Washington watchdog's lawsuit was filed last fall when the DOJ failed to provide access to "a copy of the budget prepared and submitted by Robert S. Mueller III or his staff in his capacity as appointed..." and "a copy of all guidance memoranda and communications by which the Justice Management Division will review the special counsel's office's "Statement of Expenditures" prior to or for the goal of making each public".
In congressional testimony, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has defended Mueller's team against criticism that it was politically tainted.
Trump then pivoted to the FBI-the agency that has drawn the ire of the president, as well as his most ardent supporters who claim there is a conspiracy within its ranks to take down the president-before returning to the Mueller probe.
