Trump accuses Mueller's team of meddling in midterm elections

The Justice Department declined comment Wednesday.

Asked about Gowdy's comments, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president "still has concerns about whether or not the Federal Bureau of Investigation acted inappropriately having people in his campaign".

Coons said Gowdy "is stepping forward and putting to rest the baseless allegations by President Trump".

Quoting Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, who noted on CBS earlier Wednesday that Trump "could have picked somebody else" for the position, Trump tweeted, "I wish I did!" Further expanding on his comments in a follow-up interview on Wednesday morning, Gowdy said on CBS "This Morning" that Trump's lawyers "have an obligation to go share with him" what lawmakers learned in the meeting to help tamp down his continued promotion of "Spygate".

On his Fox News show Tuesday night, the conservative commentator stood behind Trump's baseless "Spygate" claims, saying "Robert Mueller's out-of-control Russian Federation probe has now lost all sense of legitimacy".

Trump has repeatedly attacked the "13 Angry Democrats" in recent weeks, and he's also accused the Department of Justice of placing a spy inside his campaign.

"You have a president peddling these falsehoods and you have essentially people putting out propaganda" to promote that "fiction", the California Democrat said.

"Sorry, I've got to start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military, and so much more, and not on the Rigged Russia Witch Hunt that should be investigating Clinton/Russia/FBI/Justice/Obama/Comey/Lynch etc.", he tweeted.

After that, Trump added, in his own voice: "And I wish I did!"


Gowdy pointed out that no one knows whether Mueller is conducting a criminal investigation.

"The only way she filled up the arena was to get Jay-Z", he said to boos while recalling his 2016 victory at a campaign rally in Nashville.

Sessions himself has sat for an interview with Mueller, and Trump's views of his attorney general's recusal are among the questions investigators have for Trump should he do the same.

"Our president has a long history of rolling out baseless accusations and conspiracy theories from his role before he was president in arguing that President Obama was not an American to his claim right after the campaign that 3 million illegals had voted without any proof or evidence to his claim that President Obama had tapped his phone in Trump Tower without any evidence", Coons said on CNN.

Trump said he was "sorry" he was spending so much time on the Russian Federation investigation and said he has "to start focusing my energy" on the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, "bad Trade Deals", the economy and other issues.

It is notable that Trump cited Gowdy's views of the dispute.

Gowdy has been briefed on the classified documents about the continuing investigation that Republicans sought.

"I disagree with Trey Gowdy", Schlapp said.
