President Trump says special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference should never have been started, and tore into the investigative team for what he described as Democratic bias on Sunday via Twitter. Trump made the remarks after his legal team received preliminary interview questions from Mueller, according to The New York Times. The president's tweets also came shortly after his personal lawyer told The Daily Beast he hoped the probe would be shut down after the firing of Andrew McCabe, the FBI's deputy director. McCabe's dismissal has faced mounting scrutiny with some viewing it as an effort to undermine Mueller. The investigation “was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!” Trump wrote on Twitter. He said “there was no collusion and no crime” to warrant the investigation, despite a federal indictment against 13 Russians found to have conspired to interfere in the 2016 election.
