|Trump not happy about Robert Mueller pushing this investigation on his ties to Russia.|
And so it begins. There's five sources that told the Washington Post that Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor in the Russian investigation is mulling at criminal charges. Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence dismiss the case but hired lawyers.
Mueller is interviewing this week three top intelligence officials as a part of the probe, the Post reported.
Three officials told the Post that Mueller is interviewing the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the recently retired deputy NSA director.
Trump went to social media to call it "phony" and said that all this attention should have been focused on Hillary Clinton, the former Democratic nominee for president.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller, hinted broadly that a special counsel investigation could be looking at Trump during a House committee hearing on Tuesday.
CNN also reports that Senate Intelligence chairs Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) were notified Wednesday. This came fresh after Rosenstein's boss the squinty eyed bigot Jefferson Beauregard Session III did his testimony on Tuesday.
The possibility of charging Trump with obstruction of justice could resonate with possible congressional indictments.
Trump has hinted he might fire Mueller. If he does that, it puts more pressure on him. It could make Republicans less likely to support his claims that the special counsel is bias.
