Minutes later he publicly unleashed his sharpest invective to date against the sweeping investigation, calling the Monday search "a disgrace".

Trump let loose after federal agents pierced the protective bubble around him, seizing records from the offices of longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen, on topics including a $130,000 payment made to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump more than a decade ago. "Republicans and Democrats need to make clear that they will not allow President Trump or anyone on his behalf to interfere with or attempt to impede any of these ongoing and serious investigations".

He said agents "broke into" Cohen's Manhattan office, although the search warrants were perfectly legal. "Well, I think it's a disgrace what's going on".

Trump also called Cohen a "good man" and labeled the special counsel Robert Mueller's team as "the most conflicted group of people I have ever seen". The White House has consistently said Trump denies the affair.

Trump also went after Attorney General Jeff Sessions - whose decision to recuse himself set in motion events that led to the appointment of Mueller by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who is revealed to have permitted the raid after hearing from Mueller.

Trump lit into Sessions, repeating in public his private criticism of the attorney general for making a "terrible mistake" in recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY released a statement warning Trump against firing Mueller.
