“I don’t intend to have a discussion with the president on that point and I hope he doesn’t call me and tell me the same thing that you said he said,” Grassley told CNN’s Manu Raju on Wednesday when told about Trump's tweet.

The Judiciary Committee is one of several congressional committees conducting separate investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Some GOP lawmakers have in recent weeks accused the Mueller probe of bias against the president, citing anti-Trump text messages sent by a former member of Mueller's team.

It was recently reported that Trump’s team is discussing options for a possible interview with Mueller in the coming weeks.

Mueller’s investigation has thus far led to two indictments and two guilty pleas.
