Mueller probing Trump's request that Sessions rescind his recusal from Russian Federation investigation

President Donald Trump will not grant a sit-down interview to Russian Federation probe Special Counsel Robert Mueller unless prosecutors give his legal team access to documents on an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant during his presidential campaign, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Tuesday.

"Why didn't President Obama do something about the so-called Russian Meddling when he was told about it by the Federal Bureau of Investigation before the Election?" he asked.

"Why 13 of angry Democrats did not investigate the campaign dishonest Hillary Clinton's many crimes, collusion with Russian Federation? There was no Collusion, except by the Democrats".

"Sorry, I've got to start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military and so much more, and not on the Rigged Russia Witch Hunt that should be investigating Clinton/Russia/FBI/Justice/Obama/Comey/Lynch etc", Trump tweeted. At least nine have donated to Democratic candidates and causes.

"The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls", Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

In recent days Mr. Trump has fired off a number of tweets accusing the Federal Bureau of Investigation of planting and paying a "spy" in his campaign, which he on Wednesday termed "SPYGATE" and later decried as "illegal" and "one of the political scandals in US history".

President Trump's lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani said Tuesday that Trump will not agree to an interview with the special counsel until prosecutors allow the president's legal team to review documents related to the FBI's use of an informant to interact with members of Trump's 2016 campaign.

House Oversight & Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is "doing what [Trump] told them to do".

The rapper used the n-word and the f-word during his concert, which Trump criticized during the campaign.

Trump made the comments during a rally for Rep. "In the new media landscape, InfoWars and Fox News are where the President's getting his support, and these theories are promulgated there", Mr. Nunberg told the New York Times, though he declined to classify Spygate as a conspiracy theory.

Clapper told "Face the Nation" that as DNI during the Obama administration, he would not have known about any Federal Bureau of Investigation informant or their decision to use a human source.
