Russian Federation investigation special counsel, in addition to probing possible collusion between the Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, is also conducting a wide-ranging investigation into obstruction of justice by Trump, a probe that The Washington Post has called, "likely to be much bigger than we realized". Mueller is a Republican who was appointed as Federal Bureau of Investigation director by President George W. Bush, and the man who tapped him as special counsel, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, was named by Trump and is also a registered Republican.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from overseeing the Russian Federation investigation due to his role on the Trump campaign.
There is now an investigation into the possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election, which is led by Robert Mueller. "The President was expressing his opinion on his favored medium for asserting his First Amendment right of free speech", Giuliani said.
The special counsel is also probing a potential obstruction of justice case against the president.
Mr Rosenstein is the one who appointed Mr Mueller and has the authority to fire him. If Sessions pays him no mind and Rosenstein pays him no mind and Mueller pays him no mind and no one's gotten fired (since Comey, whose own firing didn't end the probe), then what exactly has been "obstructed"?
The special counsel is also scrutinising whether there were any attempts by the president to obstruct justice. "It's been going on for a year-and-a-half, they've talked to every witness they want to, we haven't asserted executive privilege, and they've gotten every single last document, 1.4 million, that they wanted". The timing is interesting too - his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has just gone on trial, accused of failing to declare the extent of his business connections with pro-Moscow Ukrainian politicians. "They reflect a state of mind and an intent to obstruct justice", said Senator Richard Blumenthal, a member of the Judiciary Committee.
"He worked for me for a very short time", Trump wrote.
Mr Manafort, 69, led Mr Trump's campaign for three months until August 2016.
But in a Tuesday morning tweetstorm, the president effectively argued that the probe is already threatening to interfere in the vote - and questioned again why the team is not investigating "totally Crooked Hillary Clinton" and Democrats. While prosecutors have said they will not present evidence in this trial about possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, they may dig deeper into Manafort's connections with Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs, legal experts have said.
