"What's more disturbing is that, in the wake of these reports, the President appears to be using this unrelated action as a pretext to disparage Special Counsel Mueller's investigation and openly contemplate firing him".
Mueller is reportedly also investigating a $150,000 donation that Victor Pinchuk, a pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch, made to the Donald J. Trump Foundation in September 2015 after Trump gave a 20-minute speech.
"Mueller has ostensibly tonight declared war against the President of the United States", Hannity said. "We'll see what happens, but it's really a sad situation when you look at what happened".
And then the president seemed to go on to attack those carrying out the Russian Federation investigation, calling them "the most biased group of people" with "the biggest conflicts of interest I've ever seen".
Trump argued that "they found nothing", bringing up Rosenstein's letter which recommended former FBI Director James Comey's firing, something Trump attempted to defend at length.
Cohen is now a subject of scrutiny in two criminal investigations, one of which is being overseen by the SDNY and the other by Mueller's office.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think it's a disgrace what's going on.
Trump called the probe a "witch hunt", as he has many times in the past, complaining that it distracts from serious issues such as consideration of a military response to the apparent use of a chemical weapon on Syrian civilians over the weekend. Meanwhile, the special counsel's heightened focus on Cohen comes after he subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents and records related to its foreign deals.
Commissioned to investigate the Left's ridiculous Trump-Russian electoral collusion conspiracy theory, Mueller, with his scorched-earth, shock-and-awe tactics, remains the Left's best hope to remove Trump from power.
Beneath Justice Division laws, Mueller is required to seek the advice of with Deputy Lawyer Normal Rod Rosenstein when his investigators uncover new proof which will fall outdoors his authentic mandate.
In January, the White House switched to a different line, repeatedly telling reporters that the White House would be "fully cooperative" with the special counsel. But Trump can either fire Mueller or wait to be pecked to death by Democratic ducks.
Sean Hannity devoted the top of his show Monday to a rant about the big news of the day: the FBI's raid on the office of Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's personal lawyer. Documents were seized in the raid that took place even though Cohen "cooperated completely" with Mueller's office, he said. "It's frankly, a real disgrace". We are getting some very good clarity on who is responsible for the attack. "So when I saw this and when I heard it, I heard it like you did".
Trump's comments came shortly after the Federal Bureau of Investigation reportedly raided the office and hotel room of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, on Monday afternoon.
Trump blasted the Mueller team as "the most conflicted group of people I've ever seen", labeling majority Democrats and saying the few Republicans had worked for President Barack Obama. "Democrats all, or just about all either Democrats or a couple of Republicans that work for President Obama, they're not looking at the other side".
