Mueller Probing Ukrainian's 2015 Donation to Trump Foundation

President Donald Trump has lashed out against special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, branding it "an attack on our country" and exhibiting mounting concern about the yearlong probe after federal authorities raided the offices of his personal attorney.

Trump appeared to directly float the idea of firing special counsel Robert Mueller at the start of his military leadership meeting on Monday, calling the special counsel's investigation a "disgrace" and defending his firing of former FBI Director James Comey as the "right thing" to do.

The foundation said the donation was "a specific request of Mr. Trump Foundation in September of 2015 when there were multiple candidates for the Republican nomination for president and it was by no means assured that Mr. Trump would be the Republican nominee in 2016".

Trump, speaking Monday to reporters at the White House, defended Cohen as a "good man" and blasted Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe as "an attack on our country, in a true sense". "Well I think it's a disgrace", Trump said at the White House.

On Syria, Mr. Trump said, "We're going to make a decision tonight, and you'll be hearing the decision", though probably "after the fact", He also suggested that we can't let atrocities like chemical attacks happen - "because of the power of our country we're able to stop that", he said. "Many people have said 'you should fire him.'" Firing Mueller could kick off a constitutional crisis in the United States, and would spark hundreds of pre-planned protests across the country.

These people have the biggest conflicts of interest I have ever seen ...

Agents are believed to be looking into a $130,000 payment that attorney Michael Cohen allegedly made just before the election to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump answered questions about Daniels for the first time last week, saying he had no knowledge of the payment made by Cohen and he didn't know where Cohen had gotten the money.

Mueller is looking into the unusually large donation as part of his wider examination of a flow of foreign money to Trump and various Trump-connected businesses in the lead-up to the 2016 election, three people familiar with the matter told the New York Times. I've given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel.

As for today's raid on Cohen's office, it is "a whole new level of unfairness".

A supply near the White Home instructed Fox Information' John Roberts that the raid confirmed that the Mueller investigation "is uncontrolled" and was a "demonstration of unhealthy religion" on the a part of the particular counsel. Officials also took a computer, financial records, and attorney-client communications.

The harsh tone of Trump's comments immediately drew warnings from lawmakers on Capitol Hill, who have sought to preserve Mueller's independence. According to The Times, the Trump Organization responded by handing over documents about Pinchuk's donation, among others. "No marshal can get into this White House and any Secret Service agent who defies me is fired'". The totally unnecessary and Gestapo-like raid on Trump's private attorney's office has put Mueller on a tee.

There have been few indicators that Mueller was excited by investigating the fee, although.
