Donald Trump says he had ‘very nasty’ relationship with special counsel

In a story about the then-recent charges against three Trump campaign aides - two for activities that occurred a decade before the campaign and one for statements apparently made while drunk - said the indictments signaled Mueller planned to pursue "an extensive probe that will explore both personal wrongdoing of those connected with President Trump and possible efforts campaign officials took to work with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election".

If the words "links" and "coordination" are not close enough to collusion, Rosenstein went further in that same memo, when he explicitly laid out allegations against former Trump campaign chief Manafort, which Rosenstein said "were within the scope of the Investigation at the time of your appointment and are within the scope of the Order".

He said the President doesn't have to support his own tweet's claim because it's Mueller's "conflict", not Trump's.

But Giuliani's comments on Monday - which came a day after Trump backer and former New Jersey Gov.

CNBC reported Giuliani also insisted "collusion is not a crime", even though the president has said there was no collusion. Well, the President didn't hack! "He didn't pay for the hacking". "This morning I tweeted, 'Collusion is not a crime, ' and it worked", he said.

Giuliani is correct, technically speaking, that there is no charge called "collusion" that can be found in the federal criminal code.

Rudy Giuliani on Monday claimed collusion is not a crime in connection with the investigation into Russian election interference in 2016.

Mr Trump has called the probe - which also seeks to determine whether his campaign team colluded with Russian Federation and whether he obstructed justice - a "witch hunt" and repeatedly demanded it be ended.

Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told reporters Wednesday that the President's legal team has received a response from Mueller's team regarding their counter-proposal for a potential interview with the President. Trump has denied having knowledge of it, and Donald Trump jnr has said under oath that his father didn't know about it.

'Because he has the conflict, not the president, ' said Giuliani.

President Donald Trump agreed with his lawyer Tuesday that election collusion with a foreign government is not a crime, even as he denied working with Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign.

'Why don't you write a report and show us what you have, because they don't have a goddamn thing, ' Giuliani said. "But he claimed Trump still has a 'soft spot" for Michael Cohen, who Giuliani has been branding as a liar amid signals he may cooperate with Mueller.

The president said he turned Mr. Mueller down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation following the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey a year ago.

"No, it's starting to get useless", he added. "So we don't just acknowledge though the basis for that", Giuliani said.

In the tweets, Trump largely resurfaced previous issues he has with the investigation, claiming Mueller personally has conflicts of interest - including a "contentious business relationship" - that should preclude him from running the investigation, accusing Mueller of bringing on too many Democratic investigators, and making a false claim about the origin of the Russian Federation investigation.

'We have 183 unique tape recordings. 'Sounds suspicious, doesn't it?' he added.
