Trump accuses Mueller of 'meddling' in mid-term elections

Trump spends a holiday weekend in Washington firing off tweet attacks on the Russia investigation and the media

Asked whether the Mueller probe was legitimate now, Giuliani said, "not anymore", citing reports of an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant within the Trump campaign as one of the reasons for its discrediting.

During the 2016 presidential election, he focused on the Democratic campaigns of Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley.

For over a year, Donald Trump has maintained that the Robert Mueller probe is a "witch hunt" concocted by the Democrats to stain the integrity of his administration. "Ask them if they enjoyed her after election celebration!" His campaign rallies frequently began with chants of "lock her up".

"I did when I came in", he said.

Trump has at some point attacked each person or organization on his slashmarked list. Richard Nixon was a Republican president investigated by Democrats. "He knows exactly what he did and what he didn't do, and he's been very clear from day one that there was no collusion".

However, some political observers have speculated that Democrats may try to revive the House Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation probe if they win the majority in the November elections.

Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort has been indicted on multiple charges and is awaiting trial in Virginia. This also allows Mr. Mueller to continue in his position as special counsel at taxpayer expense.

Mueller is leading the probe into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. The truth and the facts will come out, and I don't think it's going to show that it's a matter of interpretation but of guilt.

"He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn't a target of the investigation", Giuliani said.

"There's no evidence to support that spy theory", Schiff said.

Wine-Banks noted that Giuliani, who's done many interviews since Trump hired him over a month ago, was attempting to control the spin around negotiations involving Trump meeting Mueller's investigators.

"We need all the documents before we can decide whether we are going to do an interview", Giuliani said. "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said during the May 10 meeting, according to the newspaper.

Two hours earlier, Trump suggested in a tweet that as a result of the Mueller investigation, many who hoped to work in government had to withdraw applications because their reputation was now "in tatters".

"If they do, uh, put together whatever the heck they have, interview or no interview, by September 1st the public should have an explanation of what Mueller has", he explained.
