Trump pushes Jeff Sessions to end Mueller's Russian Federation investigation 'right now'

Trump pushes Jeff Sessions to end Mueller's Russian Federation investigation 'right now'

A federal special counsel is leading a criminal investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, and any possible cooperation with Trump's presidential campaign.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump's tweets are simply the president "fighting back".

Amid a series of morning tweets, Trump wrote, "This is a bad situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further".

Trump's lawyers oppose the in-person portion of the interview, according to the Times, and may be inclined to turn down the proposal - something that could trigger a subpoena battle with Mueller. Mueller is a Republican, his direct superior is a Republican, and his teams includes members who have made political donations in the past to both Democrats and Republicans.

"He is on trial on financial charges to do with bank fraud and tax evasion and money laundering, but he has very well established connections to Russian Federation".

After an incredibly damning report by Murray Waas, that we covered yesterday, which points to a memo and new first hand accounts that show Mueller has strong evidence that the President obstructed justice, Trump seems to be a bit more disturbed this morning than usual.

"Sky News' US correspondent Mark Austin said: "(Mr Trump) is consistently trying to undermine his attorney general and the Mueller investigation.

"These kinds of threats are no accident. What they're doing is something that is important and we support and I don't think any effort to truncate that or somehow shut it down early is in the public's best interest", said Senator John Thune. Mark R. Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a tweet.

Democrats skeptical of the Trump-led effort to protect the elections said they were glad there was a focus on it now.

Potential coordination between Russian government agents and the Trump campaign is still a matter of investigation by Mr Mueller's team, which is also investigating potential obstruction of justice by the president.

Mr Mueller is looking into obstruction of justice claims and probing contacts the Trump campaign had with Russian-linked figures before the 2016 vote.

Mr. Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, is investigating whether the Trump camgain aided or abetted an attempt by Russian Federation to sway the 2016 presidential election, or tried to cover up the conspiracy.

It opened with extraordinary anticipation amid unresolved questions about whether Trump associates coordinated with the Kremlin to tip the election in the president's favour. "There is now highly credibly evidence that the president of the United States is committing obstruction of justice in real time, right before our eyes".

Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said that in his tweet Trump was expressing an opinion long espoused by his team.
