"They are screaming and shouting at people", Mr Trump wrote, adding that no collusion between his election campaign and Russian Federation had been found.

President Donald Trump with Chief Paul Cell, of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, left, during an announcement of his support for a criminal justice reform bill, called the First Step Act, at the White House in Washington, on November 14.

"There are some that create more issues for us legally than others", Giuliani told the Washington Post.

Some 32 individuals and three Russian businesses have been indicted by Mueller and his team of prosecutors on charges ranging from computer hacking to obstruction of justice.

Elie Honig, a former federal prosecutor for the Southern District of NY, speculated to Bertrand that "prosecutors had some sort of "time to get real" conversation with someone implicated in the investigation, which was then relayed to Trump by defense attorneys". He added that the investigators are threatening Americans to provide the answers they want.

The Iowa Republican said he's confident President Trump followed the Vacancies Reform Act in naming Mr. Whitaker, who was not in a Senate-confirmed position but who, according to the administration, was senior enough to be named acting attorney general.

"They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts", he said.

"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 wasn't close to done: "These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years".

Whitaker is now overseeing the Mueller probe, which had previously been overseen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Sessions was the first major political figure to support Trump in the 2016 election, but also had met with Russia's then-ambassador to Washington in the run-up to the voting two years ago.

Republicans, with few exceptions, are rallying around the president.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday blocked two senators from bringing up bipartisan legislation to protect Mueller's investigation from any interference by Trump. "This morning, Trump showed again why we need it", Adam Schiff, a top House Democrat, tweeted.

Schumer is one of many Democrats demanding that Congress pass a law to protect the Mueller probe. "Heck, it's happening in front of our eyes".
