Trump's Lawyer John Dowd Might Be The Dumbest Attorney In America

President Donald Trump salutes a Marines honor guard upon arrival at the White House in Washington from a trip to Manchester N.H. Monday

Graham, a co-author of legislation that would make it harder for a president to fire a special counsel, said it was very important that Mueller be allowed to proceed without interference and that many Republicans share this view.

"I wouldn't say it rises to the level of an impeachable offense, but I certainly think it's going to create a real problem", he added. "I think the White House has said 10 times, maybe more, that they're not going to fire Robert Mueller, they want him to be able to finish the investigation". "We have a system based on the rule of law in this country".

Trump's comments led his personal lawyer Ty Cobb to release a statement on Sunday.

The salvo was the latest in a growing confrontation over Mueller's investigation, which is probing whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian attempts to sway the 2016 election in his favor, but also whether the president sought to obstruct justice. In recent weeks Trump has reportedly been increasingly agitated by Mueller's 10-month-old investigation.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, an ex-U.S. attorney under Bush and Democratic President Barack Obama, was named to the Justice Department post by Trump and put in charge of Mueller's investigation by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a former Republican senator tapped by Trump for his Cabinet.

Schumer says Mueller should be allowed to continue his investigation and warns that Trump will "create havoc, disaster, constitutional crisis" if he tries to fire Mueller.

Dowd initially said he was speaking on behalf of the president, in his capacity as the president's attorney - though he later walked that back, saying he was speaking in his personal capacity and not on the president's behalf. Trump's rhetoric is all created to push his supporters to see Mueller as yet another partisan pursuing an agenda.

Mr Trump accused him of lying under oath before Congress, and described the contemporaneous notes that Mr McCabe and Mr Comey took following discussions with him as "fake memos".

Sources tell the Daily Beast that Trump's angry tweets directed at the Mueller probe are no fluke - rather, they're part of Trump's desire to undermine the investigation's credibility.

"Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was with me", Mr Trump tweeted on Sunday.

"I would just counsel the president".

Hours earlier, Trump defended McCabe's firing, simultaneously dragging former FBI Director James Comey into the conversation as well. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Trump has "some well-established frustration" about the probe but insisted there is no internal discussion about removing Mueller.

Donald Trump has signalled a possible shift away from a strategy of cooperating with the Russian Federation probe he believes is biased against him.

"If he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency", Graham said on CNN's "State of the Union".

The appointment of diGenova, who himself has offered strong rebukes of the Mueller investigation, likely signals a more aggressive push by Trump's legal team that had once pledged full cooperation with Mueller's investigators. Trump tweeted on Sunday.

Gowdy is chairman of the House Oversight committee.

McCabe has said he is the victim of a Trump administration "war" against the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the special counsel.

In response, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said: "If you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it". But in a subsequent statement he said he had been "speaking for myself, not the president".
