Donald Trump blames Mueller probe, 'Presidential Harassment' for approval rating

Trump's series of early morning tweets came ahead of expected new details expected on Friday that could shed new light on how two of Trump's closest former aides have helped or hindered Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

President Donald Trump is marking what's expected to be a busy day for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation by launching a Twitter broadside against the prosecutor and his team.

Many of Trump's tweets attempted to preemptively undermine the report.

Trump also compared the Mueller probe to the Justice Department's conviction of Arthur Andersen for its decision to destroy Enron accounting documents as that former energy giant was melting down.

Mueller's investigation has produced dozens of criminal charges and four guilty pleas from Trump associates. "It's called Presidential Harassment!" he said.

The special counsel and federal prosecutors in NY will have to file memos in court on Friday detailing the cooperation of longtime Trump legal fixer Michael Cohen. "It could be a big day".

Cohen and Manafort are among five former Trump associates who prosecutors have accused of lying either to federal investigators or to Congress.

In that memo, Mueller praised Flynn for providing "substantial" cooperation and argued that Flynn should receive no prison time, a move widely seen by legal experts as a message to other would-be cooperators that assistance would be rewarded.

Gowdy (R-S.C.), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee and chairs the House Oversight Committee, said lawmakers want to ask Comey about "everything" that occurred at the bureau under his watch, including the Hillary Clinton email investigation, the impetus for the Russian Federation probe and alleged FISA abuse.

"They want the judge to throw the book at Manafort, sending a message to him and everyone else", he said.
