Trump says, without proof, that Mueller team will meddle in midterm elections

Trump says 'disgraceful' if FBI spied on campaign

Shep read a tweet from Trump's social media criticizing Mueller's probe as "the rigged Russia Witch Hunt", and accusing Democrats of attempting to meddle in the midterm election.

In the interview Tuesday night, Gowdy tried to insinuate that there was something suspicious about the fact that the FBI, under then-DIrector James Comey, didn't brief Trump about the investigation into his campaign aides' ties to Russian Federation.

In recent days Mr. Trump has fired off a number of tweets accusing the Federal Bureau of Investigation of planting and paying a "spy" in his campaign, which he on Wednesday termed "SPYGATE" and later decried as "illegal" and "one of the political scandals in US history".

"Why aren't the 13 Angry and heavily conflicted Democrats investigating the totally Crooked Campaign of totally Crooked Hillary Clinton". (In fact, the Federal Bureau of Investigation used an informant outside the campaign, a Republican professor, to make contact with campaign members.) He also claimed that the former director of national intelligence, James Clapper, had confirmed that there was a spy in the campaign (Clapper had explicitly said this was not true).

"It has resulted in charges against four former Trump associates, three pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about Russian Federation".

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".

The president highlighted comments made on Fox News by Federalist editor Mollie Hemingway, who reminded viewers that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was secretly gathering information on the Trump campaign.

The president has been emboldened by revelations that an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant was communicating with members of the Trump campaign.

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.

One of Trump's lawyers, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, told CNN on Sunday that he believed the "basis on which [Mueller] was appointed was illegitimate" and explained the president was very much open to an interview with Mueller because he's innocent.

"This investigation involved far more surveillance than we ever had any idea about".
