  • Trump Claims His Approval Rating Would be 75% if Not for the 'Russian Witch Hunt'

It seems as though that's what we've been hearing from Trump ever since Robert Mueller was appointed to look into Russian election interference and possible collusion on behalf of the Trump campaign.

President Donald Trump is marking what's expected to be a busy day for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation by launching a Twitter broadside against the prosecutor and his team.

Most recent polls have Trump's approval rating in the low 40s, while a recent Gallup poll reported a 60% disapproval rating for the 45th president.

Democrats say they will scrutinize Trump's attacks on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department when they assume control of the House in January. So far, more than 30 people have been charged or pleaded guilty in Mueller's investigation.

On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller is scheduled to file new information in the court cases against President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and attorney Michael Cohen.


Also on Friday, Mueller's office and the Southern District of NY are to file sentencing memos on Michael Cohen, Trump's former private lawyer.

"The FBI had a criminal investigation into a presidential candidate, and then less than a month after that ended, they launched a counterintelligence investigation into the campaign of the other major presidential candidate", Gowdy explained.

Before 7 a.m. Friday, Trump was in the White House residence attacking Mueller on Twitter. "It could be a big day". Comey said: "Note that I smiled".

Cohen is hoping he will get similar credit, emphasizing in a court filing last week that his decision to cooperate came in the face of fierce criticism by Trump of Mueller's probe.

Manafort, in addition to allegedly lying to Mueller, was convicted in a separate case in Virginia for a sophisticated bank and tax fraud scheme that included tens of millions of dollars in payments for his work in Ukraine.
