Trump, harassed by the Russian investigation, attacks harshly against the prosecutor who directs it

US President Donald Trump on Sunday attacked the investigation into the Russian plot led by special prosecutor Robert Mueller, who is in negotiations to question the president to elucidate his possible role in the interference of Moscow in the elections of 2016. Trump attacked the team led by Mueller a day after his personal lawyer, John Dowd, called for an end to that investigation on the grounds that it was “manufactured” by former FBI leaders for political reasons. “Why does Mueller’s team have 13 hardline Democrats , some of them big supporters of Corrupt Hillary (Clinton), and Zero Republicans? They recently added another Democrat … Does anyone think this is fair? however, THERE WAS NO CONSPIRACY (with Russia)! “, wrote Trump on Twitter. Trump omitted that Mueller himself is a Republican, and that he was nominated in 2001 as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) by a president of that party, George W. Bush . For Trump, repeating on Twitter that his campaign did not conspire with Russia is almost the bread and butter, but he had never mentioned Mueller directly in his tweets until Saturday afternoon, according to a search in a public archive of his messages in that social network. “Mueller’s investigation should never have started, because there was no conspiracy and there was no crime, it was based on fraudulent activities and a false dossier funded by Corrupted Hillary (Clinton),” Trump tweeted on Saturday.
These two mentions to the special prosecutor, who acts independently under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice, reveal their impatience with the Russian investigation , with which until now he had assured that he was willing to cooperate. Mueller’s team has been negotiating with Trump’s lawyers for more than two months to question the president, who has assured him that he is willing to testify . But the White House is eager to close the Russian chapter earlier, and Trump’s lawyers want to demand Mueller set a date to end the investigation, specifically about 60 days after the interrogation of the president, as reported this month the newspaper The Wall Street Journal . Trump feels supported by the decision of the Republicans who lead the Intelligence Committee of the House of Representatives US ., A week ago they ended their own investigation to ensure that they had not found any coordination between the campaign of Trump and the Kremlin. Trump’s lawyer asked on Saturday that the “number two” of the Department of Justice, Rod Rosenstein, closed Mueller’s investigation on the grounds that it was “manufactured” by former FBI Director James Comey, dismissed by the president last May, and the former deputy director of that agency Andrew McCabe. The Department of Justice fired McCabe Friday, two days before his planned retirement , after accusing him of having made “an unauthorized leak to a media outlet”. McCabe, a frequent target of Trump’s criticism, denounced his dismissal as an attempt to discredit him as a witness in Mueller’s investigation, which he allegedly delivered a series of notes he took after his contacts with the president. Trump downplayed that fact by claiming on Twitter that he spent “very little time with Andrew McCabe”, and calling ” false reports ” any note that might exist about those encounters. Trump’s messages about Mueller’s investigation alarmed several members of Congress, including Democrat Mark Warner, who called on “all” legislators from both parties to ” defend the special prosecutor , right now.” “Our Republican colleagues, particularly the leadership, have an obligation to our country to make it clear right now that firing Mueller is a red line for our democracy, which should not cross,” said the leader of the Democratic minority in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, in a statement. Republican Senator Lindsay Graham told CNN that if Trump tried to fire Mueller, “that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency , because this country respects the law.” Another Republican congressman, Trey Gowdy, recommended to Trump that if he is “innocent, act as such, ” instead of attacking Mueller. “If you have not done anything wrong, you should want the investigation to be as complete as possible,” Gowdy told Fox News .
