NYT: Mueller team provides Trump lawyers list of questions for interview

Political warfare in Washington enters new stage following firing of former FBI deputy director

Many leading Republicans who had been solidly in Richard Nixon's camp before October 1973 roundly condemned him when he fired special prosecutor Archibald Cox, forcing him to rapidly retreat and hire a tough new prosecutor.

"A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!", he tweeted of the special counsel investigation on Monday morning.

JONAH GOLDBERG: Hey, Noel.

KING: So let's start with the Russia investigation.

However, some former campaign advisers have urged Trump to be combative, warning him that the investigation poses an existential threat to his presidency. Trump's rhetoric is all designed to push his supporters to see Mueller as yet another partisan pursuing an agenda. If there is doubt that the timing of McCabes dismissal was driven by political vengeance, Trump does everything he can to prove the worst with his own sordid words. It has also been accused of developing biological weapons, annexing Crimea, and supporting the Assad regime. I mean, it's actually just plain inappropriate.

Both sides of politics have warned Trump to not even think about it.

But, for example, I'm exceedingly leery of Mueller's recent move to investigate Donald Trump's business empire. But a decade later, he and his wife, Victoria Toensing, built their reputations peddling misleading conspiracies about the DOJ, Democrats, and the FBI that have little foundation in established facts.

DiGenova has cast the Russia inquiry "an attempt to frame an incoming president with a false Russia conspiracy". As the historically independent, objective guarantor of equal and neutral application of federal criminal law and enforcer of civil rights from "Mississippi Burning" to Ferguson a robust FBI has served as the guarantor of our democratic principles for nearly a century.

In a series of posts over the weekend, Trump criticized Mueller by name on Twitter for the first time, saying his investigation is corrupted by political bias.

AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, said: "As the speaker has always said, Mr. Mueller and his team should be able to do their job".

This is a role he has done much to earn.

According to Kessler, this was also incorrect since Mueller was a registered Republican as is the man who appointed him, Rod Rosenstein.

DiGenova was the lead prosecutor in the DOJ's pursuit of Washington, DC mayor Marion Barry in the late 1980s.

GOLDBERG: I haven't taken a poll.

It's unclear whether Comey's memoir is a tell-all.

The special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly more interested in the activities of Donald Trump during his presidency than during the campaign, and it could reveal Mueller's endgame as the Russia investigation stretches into its second year.

Likely adding to Mr Trump's growing frustration, The New York Times reported last week that MrMueller had subpoenaed the Trump Organisation and requested Russia-related documents.

KING: Could Trump get rid of Mueller?

"I don't like the way it happened". I mean, this Andy McCabe thing, what's fascinating about it is that by Jeff Sessions firing McCabe, he may have saved Mueller.
