Russia Investigation 'Disgrace To Our Nation,' Says Trump

The senators are concerned about Whitaker's past criticism of the Mueller probe, which is looking at Russian interference in the 2016 election and ties to US President Donald Trump's campaign.

Trump then offered this prediction: "Universities will someday study what highly conflicted (and NOT Senate approved) Bob Mueller and his gang of Democrat thugs have done to destroy people".

Acting US Attorney General Matt Whitaker told Republican Senator Lindsey Graham in a meeting on Thursday (local time) that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation will proceed.

Whitaker is now overseeing the Mueller probe, which had previously been overseen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Trump's full-throated denunciation of Mueller comes amid reports that he's about to hand down another indictment to a man connected to Trump associate Roger Stone, Jerome Corsi, who was recently D.C. bureau chief of Alex Jones' conspiracy site Infowars.

Trump this week, according to news accounts, has been weighing written answers to questions posed by Mueller's investigators about whether Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russian interests to help him win, an allegation he has repeatedly rejected as unfounded.

There's also the possibility that the president knows something new - either passed along from his lawyers or allies under investigation, or from his newly appointed acting attorney general, who the New York Times referred to in September as the White House's "eyes and ears" in the justice department. "Why is he protecting Crooked Hillary, Comey, McCabe, Lisa Page & her lover, Peter S, and all of his friends on the other side?" he wrote, referring to fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, former anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok, and fired Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Trump wrote in another message.

Left open yet, however, is whether Trump will sit for an interview with Mueller for further questioning about the collusion allegations and whether Trump, as president, obstructed justice by trying to thwart the probe. They still don't have it.

Many critics of the president see nixing Mr. Sessions and replacing him with Mr. Whitaker as a way to curtail the Mueller investigation. "And, we have heard nothing but crickets from the DOJ Ethics Official", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) wrote on Twitter.

Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a Vietnam War veteran, is leading one of the most explosive probes in United States political history.
