Trump has repeatedly attacked Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential race, calling it a "witch hunt." Trump has maintained that no collusion took place.

Mueller charged 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups with election interference earlier this year.
