Mueller adds veteran cyber prosecutor to special-counsel team

Mueller adds veteran cyber prosecutor to special-counsel team

Richard Gates, Manafort's business associate, was also indicted, along with former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty separately to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

He also took to Twitter to bemoan "how broken and unfair our Court System is" after a federal judge temporarily blocked his plan to end protections for undocumented immigrants who entered the USA illegally as children.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly denied colluding with Russian Federation, and on Wednesday he referred to the special counsel's investigation as the "single greatest Witch Hunt in American history".

"The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues", Trump tweeted Wednesday.

"There has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians or Trump and Russians-no collusion", he said.

Mueller and his team of investigators have reportedly said they want to interview President Trump in person as they move forward with the Russian Federation probe - and Trump's lawyers are saud reaching out for ways to protect the president by limiting the inquiry.

"For 11 months, we've had this phony cloud over this administration", Trump said. Norway is a major supporter of the worldwide pact, but Trump said the proposed restrictions on energy use hurt American businesses. Mr Trump's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with requests in the probe, which has already resulted in charges against four of Trump's campaign advisers.

Trump also assailed California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, calling her "sneaky" because on Tuesday she released a transcript of an August interview with the head of a firm that produced a dossier containing allegations about Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

Prosecutors have indicated they will likely seek an interview with Trump, the Washington Post reported.

The Special Counsel's team could interview Trump soon on some limited portion of questions - possibly within the next several weeks, according to a person close to the President.

The transition group, Trump for America, claims in a letter sent Monday to GSA officials that an agency memo supposedly sent last June to Mueller's team provides evidence that the emails later handed over to Mueller's investigators were legally owned by the transition. And as the top Democrat on the committee, she didn't need authorisation from Grassley to release it.

Donald Trump is playing hard to get.

She released the transcript of Glenn Simpson's interview against the objections of the committee's Republican chairman Chuck Grassley.

Mueller's appointment enjoyed bipartisan support, although as the probe has continued, more Trump allies have joined the President in trying to discredit it.
