Trump tweet on Muller probe "opinion not order": White House

"This is a awful situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further", Mr Trumpsaid.
The U.S. leader contended that "Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to US!" Trump reportedly ordered Mueller fired in 2017 but backed down in the face of internal White House resistance. Trump has been more frustrated since headlines about his former attorney Michael Cohen emerged last week. If Trump manages to talk himself into a deep enough hole, a President Mike Pence might start looking pretty attractive to Senate Republicans looking at a much tougher cycle in 2020, too.
But Trump's lawyers have been wary of a sit-down with prosecutors.
On Tuesday night, Trump flew back from Florida with former aides who have stoked his anger and impulses in the past: current campaign manager Brad Parscale and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Earlier this summer, Parscale tweeted that Trump should fire Sessions in order to bring the Mueller probe to an end.
O'Donnell noted that they may intend to follow the instructions, but might go on Twitter to see other people's posts and come across Trump's messages inadvertently.
His remarks are notable because he himself has previously acknowledged the US Department of Justice should be free from political interference.

"Who is the president who said we are going to drive down the cost of energy and make the United States the most efficient oil exporter in the world...?"

"The last President didn't feel like he had to", Scott added.
Slamming Trump, Bharara said even if it is "on the basis of a non-recusal by Mueller no less". I'm no attorney, but such actions appear to be an attempt to obstruct justice yet again. "America must never accept it".
"It would be far better if the President refrained from commenting and for Mr. Mueller to continue his investigation, which so far already has 30 indictments, including Russian nationalists", she said on Capitol Hill.
The president's demand came on the second day of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort's trial for charges of money laundering and tax fraud related to work he did for pro-Russia Ukrainian politicians.
But Manafort's involvement in the Trump campaign spanned six months, and he helped lead efforts to secure the GOP nomination for Trump in 2016.
Manafort is being tried for federal criminal offences and Trump has said that the old charges on him have nothing to do with the Russian probe.
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.
He has also repeatedly called for an end to the investigation into Moscow's meddling, which has seen more than 20 Russians indicted so far.
There was no immediate response from Sessions, the country's top law enforcement official, on the president's call to end the Russian Federation probe.
Kelly has often joked publicly about how working for Trump is the hardest job he's ever had, including those on the battlefield. The news comes after months of speculation about whether Kelly would be leaving the administration.
Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal lawyer, has indicated that Mr Trump could pardon Mr Manafort should he be found guilty. Ellis has since ruled that Mueller is acting within the scope of his investigation in pursuing charges against Manafort.
