1,600 Lawyers Send Powerful Message To Senate Republicans: ‘Protect Robert Mueller Probe’

House Democrats target Whitaker's involvement in 'scam' company

"A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!" he continued. They were drafting answers to questions from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, whose team is investigating possible links between Trump associates and Russia's election interference and whether Trump has obstructed the inquiry itself. "They are a disgrace to our Nation and don't care how many lives the [sic] ruin", he wrote in the first section of a two-part tweet, without elaborating about Mueller's supposed hardline tactics.

The president later tweeted that Mr Mueller and "his gang of Democrat thugs" were destroying people, and blamed social media tech giants for unfavourable coverage towards his administration and the Republicans.

He added, more attention should be brought to the leftist bias of tech giants like Facebook, Google and Twitter - arguing that's real collusion.

But it was unclear what may have motivated Trump's messages on Thursday morning. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), curiously enough, recently broke his newfound blind loyalty to President Trump by supporting such a bill. Rumours and reports have swirled of impending indictments and late nights at the special counsel's office.

It's been a quiet few days, but that seems certain to change.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the Russian Federation probe previous year, was forced to resign last week by Trump, and replaced by Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker. Ironically, Whelan was the principal deputy assistant attorney general, but under the same Vacancies Reform Act, he was temporarily serving the place of the Senate-confirmed head of OLC during a vacancy very similar to the one involving Whitaker.

Following this decision, Mr Trump told the New York Times: "Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else". He was replaced by his own chief of staff Matthew G. Whitaker, who publicly criticized the Mueller probe before joining the Justice Department.

Rosenstein, said Dershowitz, should be recused, and the idea of making him the acting attorney general "would be absurd".
