Donald Trump reached for a loaded term on Monday when without offering proof he accused special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators of "meddling" in the forthcoming midterm elections.

He also declared Democrats are providing Trump and his allies with the "material" to undermine the Mueller probe - and warned it'll backfire in the midterm elections.

In fact, he said, the FBI's actions appeared to support what Trump himself has at times demanded: that investigators pursue any attempts by Russian Federation to infiltrate his campaign and efforts by the Kremlin to interfere in the election. With the congressional campaigns now in their early stages in many USA states five-plus months ahead of the voting, Pompeo said there is much work ahead to mitigate any Russian interference.

The 13 Indignant Democrats (plus individuals who labored eight years for Obama) engaged on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, might be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, particularly now that Republicans (keep powerful!) are taking the lead in Polls. It's a Rigged Witch Hunt, that's why! When asked how much of the criticism against Mueller is fair, Swalwell denounced Trump for "torching every building of the FBI", but he also said the investigation's goal is not to relitigate the election.

There is no evidence to suggest that the source, former University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, was inserted into the campaign, as the president has suggested, but he did seek out and meet Trump several campaign advisers.

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.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio mentioned he sees "no proof" to help President Trump's claims that the FBI used an informant to collect data on his marketing campaign, however that as a substitute the federal probe was targeted on "people with a historical past of hyperlinks to Russian Federation that had been regarding". "They went back home in tatters!" You think they are coming in to be tried?

Giuliani also suggested that the start of the Muller probe was illegitimate, citing fired FBI Director James Comey's leaked

As for the possible Trump-Mueller showdown, Giuliani told The Washington Post. On Tuesday, though, he said, he doesn't want to make a call on whether Trump will sit down for an interview "until they decide whether they are going to give us the documents or not".

Utah GOP Sen. Mike Lee says he's not going to defend Giuliani "because those aren't words that I would use".
