Lieu's remarks came in response to a Trump tweet calling Mueller's probe into ties between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign "a total mess." 


"This tweet by @realDonaldTrump leads me to think that more indictments are coming soon," Lieu wrote in response. "Also, it would be highly inappropriate for Trump to be told of any inner workings of the Special Counsel probe when he and his friends & family are under investigation."

"#ThursdayThoughts," the California Democrat added.

Trump in a pair of early-morning tweets derided the special counsel's investigation, which has consistently drawn his ire since it launched more than a year ago. 

Recent reports have indicated that Mueller's team has started working on its final report

"The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess," Trump tweeted on Thursday morning. "They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want."

"They are a disgrace to our Nation and don't care how many lives the [sic] ruin," the president added. 

Mueller, a registered Republican who was appointed to head the FBI by former President George W. Bush in 2001, was reported earlier this week to be close to issuing a new set of indictments in the case.
