Trump Hints Mueller Investigators Have 'Unrevealed Conflicts Of Interest'

"The Russia Witch Hunt is rapidly losing credibility", he wrote.

On Sunday, Giuliani told This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC that Trump doesn't have to comply with any subpoena and, "We can assert the same privileges other presidents have". Trump wrote later on Monday.

President Trump kicked off his Monday morning with a multi-tweet tirade against the Justice Department and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation in particular.

Mueller is a Republican.

President Donald Trump issued his latest defense against allegations he obstructed justice in the investigation into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation, claiming in a tweet: "There is no O". Citing a controversial and Republican-authored House report that suggested no evidence of collusion existed, Trump proposed that the investigation was trying to find new ways to come at him instead. Trump said last week that such questions amount to a "setup and trap" and that it would "seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened!"

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. "So now the Probe says OK, what else is there?" he tweeted. But Mueller could not have barred them from serving on the team.

Giuliani was the US attorney for the Southern District of New York before he was elected to mayor of New York City and, more recently, added to the Trump team. Giuliani has said Trump may not testify at all because of concern that prosecutors may lay a "perjury trap" for the president. The judge asked several tough questions of Mueller's team, saying, "You don't really care about Mr. Manafort's bank fraud", adding "you really care about getting information Mr. Manafort can give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump and lead to his prosecution or impeachment".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe is facing new criticism from President Trump. The Justice Department has resisted, as it also is resisting giving Nunes other materials in the Russian Federation case, including documents related to its use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

"You don't really care about Mr. Manafort", Ellis told Mueller's team.

Attorneys for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort are fighting to dismiss charges by the special counsel.
