This is a fertile group for the message Trump is selling: No matter what Mueller finds - even if it does involve collusion - it must be dismissed because Mueller and his team are nothing more than a bunch of Democrats (they aren't) pursuing a political vendetta against him (there's no evidence to support this idea).

In response to the president's tweets, Trump's lawyer Ty Cobb released a statement saying the president was not discussing firing Mueller. Which will work out fine for him, if there are no further revelations and no further visible misbehavior.

And then he made his prediction.

Trump this weekend lashed out at Mueller on Twitter for the first time by name. His challenge was widely seen as undermining Bush heading into the general election campaign against Clinton. In the statement, he asked for the special counsel investigation to be ended.

"The tweet is revelatory for a number of reasons". That conclusion came from Republicans on the committee; it was not a committee finding. Meanwhile, Mueller's probe continues to expand and four Trump associates have already been indicted on federal charges.

The furious barrage was met with tepid concern by Republicans, most of whom remained silent as the president seethed.

DiGenova's new position has not been officially announced, and the White House did not return a request for comment from the Daily News. Give any top-notch investigator unlimited resources-all the time and money he wants, the ability to hire the very best specialists, and subpoena power-plus a national media spotlight parsing every move and he can ruin pretty much anybody.

Kessler analysed Trump's tweets posted on March 17 and 18 and found the President wasn't quite accurate with his claims. But Cobb's remarks have done little to assuage fears that a newly liberated Trump, flexing his powers with the departure of his schoolmarmish secretary of state and chief economic adviser, will act impulsively to rid himself of the meddlesome special counsel.

Gidley says Trump "believes this is the biggest witch hunt in history".

Another major development during the weekend was a Guardian report that showed that Facebook data was used by Cambridge Analytica, a company that oversaw the Trump election and that of Brexit.

In a hypothetical world where Trump's people were public servants of unusually high integrity, they'd still be foolish not to lawyer up under the circumstances.

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said the Trump team was fully cooperating in the Mueller investigation and that the president was expressing his growing frustration with how long the probe has lasted.

Axios said that focus gave a "huge clue" as to Mueller's endgame in the investigations.

Comey and McCabe kept detailed memos about their conversations with Trump and will most likely be critical witnesses in the obstruction investigation.

Traditionally, when sitting presidents have faced primary challenges, those challenges have come from the party's base - from the left wing of the Democratic Party or the right wing of the Republican Party.
