Trump legal team gives document to Mueller

"Mueller's investigation came under serious threat this weekend when President Trump went on a twitter tirade and for the first time targeted Mueller by name".

He was appointed by Special Counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was himself put in place by Trump.

"Yeah, I mean, sure bro, you're the president".

The technical business of lawyering - evidenced Monday by a Washington Post report that the President's team is trying to limit the scope of any eventual interview with Mueller - is also unlikely to give Trump a vent for his pent-up anger. His legal team, namely Cobb, has counseled Trump to cooperate with Mueller.

He wrote: "The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime". On Monday Trump called the probe "a total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!"

And he says Trump's recent tweets criticizing Mueller's team are part of his "well-established frustration for more than a year this has been going on".

Later Sunday, Trump's personal lawyer Ty Cobb tried to calm speculation that Mueller's firing was imminent.

The attempt at burying the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe as a Friday evening news dump of course does not work in this era of 24/7 news cycles, but it did mean that late night hosts had to wait until Monday to crack jokes about what somehow managed to be the biggest current story in a Trump administration swirling with major stories at the moment.

But cornered prey can be unpredictable and prone to desperate acts, so Trump's behavior is stoking concerns that he is not just hinting that he may can Mueller - he may actually do it. "Now the latest Trump meltdown was prompted in part by the firing of Andrew McCabe who oversaw investigations into Hillary Clinton's e-mail server and Trump's campaign".

President Trump has lashed out at the special counsel who is investigating his campaign's links to Russian Federation in a furious attack against its alleged political bias.

Still, after a weekend of assaults on Mueller by the President there was a noticeable lack of strong warnings by the two most important men in Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

DiGenova's wife and law partner, Victoria Toensing, wrote a Fox op-ed in January urging the president not to agree to an interview with Mueller, arguing that the areas of interest to the special counsel, said to be the firing of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James Comey, have nothing to do with the collusion with Russian Federation in the presidential election. I don't believe he made memos except to help his own agenda probably at a later date.

"We're blessed to have them", Dowd added. Call them fake memos, and when you're on trial, you can call it a fake trial. Sessions previously spoke to Mueller's team while investigators looked into possible obstruction of justice.
