Trump claims 'nasty relationship' with Mueller, conflicts of interest

Trump has attacked special counsel Robert Mueller for not disclosing his conflicts of interest Trump has attacked special counsel Robert Mueller for not disclosing his conflicts of interest

Trump tweeted Sunday. "The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt, headed now by 17 (increased from 13, including an Obama White House lawyer) Angry Democrats, was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC".

"I have been sitting here looking in the federal code, trying to find collusion as a crime", Giuliani said on "Fox & Friends " on Monday.

It's unclear whether Giuliani's latest line of argument is a strategic change in the Trump team's approach to the allegations, or just another pair of freewheeling interviews from the always outspoken former mayor.

The investigation also has exposed Moscow's aggressive outreach to the Trump campaign, including a promise of "dirt" on Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in a meeting attended by Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr.

Legal experts, however, have repeatedly said that anyone found collaborating with Russian Federation on the 2016 election could be charged with other crimes, such as conspiracy, and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has not concluded.

The Trump legal team is open to Mueller interviewing Trump with questions related to "an area of collusion, not obstruction", Giuliani said on Monday.

This comes despite legal experts saying that anyone found to be colluding with Russian Federation will be liable to be charged with criminal offenses such as conspiracy.

THE FACTS: It is correct to say that election collusion isn't a precise legal term.

The meeting was also attended by former campaign chair Paul Manafort, whose role Giuliani diminished Monday, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Host Alisyn Camerota asked why it was up to Mueller to support the president's tweet.

"Enough is enough, ' Giuliani vented".

He provided no evidence that the team led by Mueller, a Republican appointed by Republicans, is biased against him. He nearly still does. 'I can't tell you, ' he siad. Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser, has since pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is cooperating with the Mueller probe.

Trump, in his tweets on Sunday, re-aired his incorrect assertion that the dossier of anti-Trump research compiled by former MI6 official Christopher Steele sparked the Russian Federation investigation.

He appeared to be referencing a dispute over golf fees at Trump's Virginia golf club that was reported in the New York Times.

Trump also argued Mueller could not be impartial in the probe because he worked for a law firm that had represented Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. "Then something happens. (Former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen) gets raided". Only 1 with the president of the united States, ' Giuliani said.
