Russian Federation on Mueller Investigation: It's Like 'Passing Water Through a Sieve'

Trump says 'disgraceful' if FBI spied on campaign

President Trump reportedly told Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reverse the pivotal decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation - a request that is being probed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In 2016, after the election, Obama said that he did what he thought was right as the administration officials didn't want to look like they were helping Hillary Clinton.

The FBI investigated Clinton for her email scandal during the campaign, something former FBI Director James Comey confirmed during the campaign, then essentially closed it, reopened it, and closed it shortly before Election Day.

Trump has repeatedly referred to Mueller's team as "13 angry Democrats". "There was no Collusion, except by the Democrats!"

Trump seemed to be sarcastic in his final tweet, explaining he had to "start focusing" his energy on other work instead of the "Rigged Russia Witch Hunt". At least nine have donated to Democratic candidates and causes.

House Oversight & Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is "doing what [Trump] told them to do".

Trump has repeatedly described the Russian Federation investigation as a "witch hunt" fueled by the "fake news" media and has even floated the idea of firing Mueller.

He and his legal team have ramped up criticism of the probe in recent weeks, with Trump now casting it as a distraction from big issues like pending diplomatic talks with North Korea.

Trump has denied accusations of campaign collusion calling them "phoney" or without any basis.

During the campaign, Trump and Sessions were close allies.

The Justice Department declined a request for comment.

The Times has previously reported that special counsel Robert Mueller, who now is in charge of the investigation, wants to ask Trump about his attempts to interfere with Sessions' recusal decision.

Clapper told "Face the Nation" that as DNI during the Obama administration, he would not have known about any Federal Bureau of Investigation informant or their decision to use a human source.

But the president has dubbed the controversy "SPYGATE", following revelations that the informant had communicated with at least three members of the campaign-George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, and Sam Clovis.
