Trump attacks Mueller as more indictments reportedly loom

House Democrats target Whitaker's involvement in 'scam' company

Chuck Schumer Threatens Protections For Mueller

After bashing the media the same day a federal judge could rule on whether the administration had to at least temporarily return White House press credentials to CNN's Jim Acosta, the commander in chief turned his attention to another favorite punching bag, special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators in the Russian Federation probe.

Top Democrats have come out against the Justice Department's recent memo arguing that President Donald Trump had the legal authority to appoint Matthew Whitaker acting attorney general without confirmation by the Senate. The almost year and a half long probe by the special counsel stems from allegations that Russian Federation may have coordinated with members of the Trump presidential campaign.

In a series of tweets Trump accused Mueller, without evidence, of having "gone absolutely nuts", adding that his prosecutors are "screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want". "They won't even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side", he said.

"The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess", Trump tweeted.

Left open yet, however, is whether Trump will sit for an interview with Mueller for further questioning about the collusion allegations and whether Trump, as president, obstructed justice by trying to thwart the probe. These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years.

In recent days, Trump had been relatively quiet about the investigation. The Senate approved the extension on a 100-0 vote.

Her husband faced as many as 30 death threats per day, marking a 400 percent increase from the preceding president, George W. Former President Barack Obama gave Michelle Obama's new memoir "Becoming" a love tap on Tuesday.

"It's been nearly a week since we called on Matthew Whitaker to recuse himself from overseeing the Special Counsel Investigation".

"Because Mr. Whitaker was not confirmed by the Senate, both Republican and Democratic constitutional law experts warned that his appointment was, and continues to be, unconstitutional".

The Democrats poised to take over the committees on Oversight, Government Reform, Judiciary, Energy and Commerce and Intelligence announced on Wednesday that they are requesting information relating to Whitaker's role at World Patent Marketing.

Graham, after a meeting with Whitaker, said he was confident there would be no interference in the investigation and said he said he saw no need for Whitaker to recuse himself as Democrats have demanded, the spokesperson confirmed.

Trump has repeatedly attacked the investigation, which has led to criminal charges against several former Trump aides.

The barrage comes as Trump's legal team is believed to be finalizing written answers to Mueller, concerning questions about whether the Trump campaign colluded during the 2016 campaign.
