Trump calls Mueller investigation 'illegal'
President Donald Trump on Thursday said the Russia collusion investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is 'illegal' as the probe continues to hone in on his inner circle. Trump told Bloomberg News in an interview that Mueller's appointment last year to investigate his 2016 election campaign for possible collusion with Russia was wrong. 'I view it differently. I view it as an illegal investigation,' he told Bloomberg. He cited unnamed 'great scholars' who say that 'there never should have been a special counsel,' according to the news agency.
