Without Proof, Trump Says Mueller's Team Will Meddle In 2018 Midterms

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said that the ongoing special counsel's Russian Federation investigation would amount to "MEDDLING" in this year's midterm elections, his latest effort to cast the probe as motivated by partisan aims.

However, this series of angry declaiming tweets began earlier, as on May 26, Trump previously blamed "13 Angry Democrats".

Trump tweeted that Mueller's team should instead investigate his former rival Hillary Clinton.

Mueller's office is also looking into possible links between President Donald Trump's election campaign and Russian Federation. With the congressional campaigns now in their early stages in many US states five-plus months ahead of the voting, Pompeo said there is much work ahead to mitigate any Russian interference.

13 Angry Democrats, and all Dems if you include the people who worked for Obama for 8 years.

"It's a Rigged Witch Hunt", Trump declared, questioning why prosecutors were not investigating his 2016 challenger, "the totally Crooked Campaign of totally Crooked Hillary Clinton".

Judge Amy Berman Jackson said in an order Tuesday that she had privately reviewed the two affidavits in question and agreed with Mueller's team that they didn't have to reveal the un-redacted information to Manafort's lawyers.

Conservative strategist Rick Tyler followed up on Hunt's panel by going into the nuances for why Trump is wrong to characterize the FBI's informant on his campaign as a spy.

The tweet appeared to be a reference to the fact that multiple lawyers on Mueller's team, before signing up for the assignment, contributed money to Democratic candidates, including Clinton. I am certain that if Mr. Rosenstein is fired, the Trump appointee will be chosen for their willingness to fire the special prosecutor. "He was back home, I did not, and he did nothing", wrote trump about Obama.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani speaks to reporters at Trump Tower, January 12, 2017 in New York City.

Special counsel Mueller himself has been a registered Republican in the past and was first appointed Federal Bureau of Investigation director by President George W. Bush. The Senate judiciary committee has supported that view; the House intelligence committee, led by Trump allies, has said there was no collusion by the Trump campaign.

As for the possible Trump-Mueller showdown, Giuliani told The Washington Post.

Giuliani's remarks Tuesday that Trump won't be interviewed "until they decide whether they are going to give us the documents or not" run counter to his earlier statement that Trump is eager to speak with Mueller and that he committed no wrongdoing.

"I don't think they would have asked to interview him until they are pretty much finished with everything", Giuliani said.
