Donald Trump says he had ‘very nasty’ relationship with special counsel

Donald Trump says he had ‘very nasty’ relationship with special counsel

Over the weekend, Trump and Giuliani launched some of their most personal attacks to date against Mueller, claiming the special counsel personally has conflicts of interest - including an unnamed "contentious business relationship" - that should preclude him from running the investigation.

Giuliani cited the counter-report as he and the president questioned the legal basis for two aspects of Mueller's investigation: possible collusion with Russian Federation and obstruction of justice.

"My client didn't do it".

However, the CNN notes that legal experts have repeatedly said that anyone found collaborating with Russian Federation during the 2016 election could be charged with other crimes, such as conspiring with a foreign power.

He later told CNN: "The hacking is the crime. The president didn't hack". "He didn't pay them for hacking".

His remarks follow similar comments from several of Trump's allies during interviews over the weekend. It's that collusion is not a crime. Any possible crime, they said, would be a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russians to break laws regulating elections. He said there was no collusion. Even now with his betrayal by taping him he still is anxious about him because he believes he's only hurting himself, ' Giuliani said. I'm not sure I know what exactly what the conflict is.

President Donald Trump fired off a series of tweets on Sunday lashing out at the special counsel investigation led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in the Oval Office of the White House, Monday, July 30, 2018, in Washington.

One of Trump's most ardent supporters in Congress said over the weekend that, even if Trump did know about that meeting and has been lying about it all along, it hardly matters. "I look really scared". I understand those two meetings that you just set out there, but that doesn't explain why you're saying he wasn't there. They haven't responded in about a week to 10 days.

"Impossible, in my opinion, based on my experience working with Trump and everybody that worked with Trump", Barbara Res said on "Anderson Cooper 360" when asked if it was plausible that Donald Trump Jr.

A Manafort conviction would give momentum to Mueller, who has indicted or secured guilty pleas from 32 people and three companies since the probe started 14 months ago.

The U.S. president had earlier tweeted about the unfair constitution of the members of the more than one-year-old panel, which he claimed were populated by Democrats. Cohen has not claimed this publicly; it sounds as though it occurred in some communication between his lawyers and the Trump legal team.

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.
