Trump says Mueller has 'unrevealed conflicts of interest'

President Trump stops to talk with reporters as he departs the White House en route to Dallas last week

Mueller is now a Republican who was appointed by President George W. Bush, and also the man who appointed him as special counsel, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, was appointed by Trump. He repeated his earlier claim that Mueller's team is made up of Democrats.

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.

Their emergence underscores a reality of the Trump era: power and prominence on Capitol Hill these days often flow not to the most senior lawmakers but to Republicans who display allegiance to a president who prizes loyalty.

Trump warned Republicans they "better get tough and smart before it is too late!"

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.

Trump also suggested special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation was politically motivated.

He also criticized Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page and Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok, who made headlines for exchanging derogatory text messages about Trump.

The President also attempted to the put the probe beyond the legal and judicial ambit into the political orbit, asking, "Is this Phony Witch Hunt going to go on even longer so it wrongfully impacts the Mid-Term Elections, which is what the Democrats always intended?" What a total mess.

Text messages between Page and Strzok, who was assigned to Mueller's investigation, show them expressing negative views about Trump and referring to him in derogatory ways.

It's been one year since special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election. Sullivan-without Flynn's defense team requesting it-ordered additional exculpatory information be given to Flynn by Mueller's prosecution.

"Only two questions. In other words, look, the way you interpret this, there's so much national security stuff happening the president can't possibly prepare for this sit-down", she said. "As soon as he learned about this issue, he took action".
