Chuck Schumer Threatens Protections For Mueller

In Mr Trump's latest tweets, he describes Mr Mueller as "conflicted" and says that those involved in the long-running probe "are a disgrace to our nation".

"Universities will someday study what highly conflicted (and NOT Senate approved) Bob Mueller and his gang of Democrat thugs have done to destroy people", Trump tweeted on Thursday.

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

Whitaker, who publicly criticized the Mueller probe before joining the Justice Department.

Those concerns were only amplified after Trump appointed Whitaker as acting attorney general last week. Elijah Cummings of Oversight, Jerry Nadler of Judiciary, Adam Schiff of Intelligence and Frank Pallone of Energy and Commerce - suggest the committees are preparing, at least initially, to jointly investigate targets that multiple panels are interested in.

In 2016, USA intelligence agencies concluded that Russian Federation had used a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media in an attempt to turn the election against Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.

The barrage comes as Trump's legal team is believed to be finalizing written answers to Mueller, concerning questions about whether the Trump campaign colluded during the 2016 campaign.
