Trump accuses Mueller team of ‘unrevealed Conflicts of Interest’

President Trump accused special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of “unrevealed conflicts of interest” in a tweet early Monday.

“The 13 Angry Democrats in charge of the Russian Witch Hunt are starting to find out that there is a Court System in place that actually protects people from injustice…and just wait ‘till the Courts get to see your unrevealed Conflicts of Interest!” Trump tweeted.



Trump has long accused Mueller’s team of being biased against him, calling its investigation a “witch hunt.”

Trump also knocked the probe in a tweet earlier Monday, claiming that he wasn’t obstructing justice in the investigation but is “fighting back.”



The president has also cited two FBI officials who exchanged anti-Trump texts in his attacks on the probe. One of the agents, Peter Strzok, was removed from the special counsel’s team after the messages were discovered.

Trump’s legal team is currently negotiating with Mueller about a potential interview with the president in the probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Trump told reporters last week that he would “love” to speak with Mueller but only if he would be “treated fairly.”

Former President George W. Bush tapped Mueller, a Republican, to lead the FBI for a 10-year term, which former President Obama then extended by two years with the unanimous approval of the Senate.
