Trump Indicates Lawful action coming in Opposition to Mueller's Group

The President regularly uses the term "witch hunt" when referring to the investigation and says that the investigators handling it are Democrats, despite the fact that Mueller himself is a registered Republican, Efe reported.

The team pursuing the Russian Federation probe had provided the questions to Trump's attorneys, headed at the time by John Dowd, with the aim of convincing them to allow Mueller to question the president, something that the two sides have been discussing for months.

The Democratic opposition has warned about the consequences if Trump were to fire Mueller, a move that could open the door to an accusation of obstruction of justice.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Giuliani said Trump had "made a deal" with his legal team about the Russian Federation probe. Moreover, Mueller's team arrogantly told Judge Ellis that only DOJ and Mueller could decide whether Mueller was exceeding the scope of his investigation; no court could determine that.

President Trump posted a second tweet, directed at "13 angry Democrats", warning the court system "protects people from injustice", a clear reference to a federal judge suggesting on Friday that Mueller may have overstepped his authority in the case against Paul Manafort in the quest to topple Trump from office. Even though CNN has noted that many members of Mueller's group have donated to Democrats, Russia's meddling at the 20-16 election additionally has become the topic of numerous Republican-led Legislation inquiries.

Mueller could not have barred them from serving on the team based exclusively on their political contributions. "Republicans better get tough and smart before it is too late!" Federal regulations and Justice Department policy prohibit the consideration of political affiliation in hiring and other personnel actions involving career attorneys.

A Tuesday morning CNN panel couldn't help but mock President Donald Trump for spending four hours trying to prepare for impending litigation that might require him to be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller. In January, 73 percent said Mr. Trump should cooperate, but that number has shifted to 53 percent. Nicholas reports, "In an informal, four-hour practice session, Mr. Trump's lawyers were only able to walk him through two questions, given the frequent interruptions on national-security matters along with Mr. Trump's loquaciousness, one person familiar with the matter said".
