Mueller files first charges in Trump-Russia investigation

"DO SOMETHING!", Trump also said.

He did not specify who should take such action, though critics have accused him of trying to improperly sway the inquiries.

The timing of the CNN exclusive is curious, as it comes just hours after Fox News published a story entitled, "Mueller facing new Republican pressure to resign in Russian Federation probe", quoting Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who reiterated his call for Mueller to step down, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former federal prosecutor, who'd gone on "Fox & Friends" on Friday morning to call for Mueller to step aside because of a conflict of interest. "Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia 'collusion, ' which doesn't exist".

The Republican-controlled Congress and the president have twice failed to repeal and replace the ACA, yet Trump has previously claimed it was "virtually dead" - and falsely added that "there's no such thing as Obamacare anymore".

In the series of tweets Sunday, the president again attempted to make the larger case that Washington and the rest of the country is consumed by the Justice Department's special counsel probe into whether Trump associates colluded with Russian Federation during the White House race, amid similar issues related to Democrats and others. The president complained about the lack of investigation into Hillary Clinton over issues such as the Steele dossier, Uranium One and her deleted emails while calling the probe a "Witch Hunt for evil politics".

And he backed his boasts with big-money acquisitions and trades for veterans like Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Deron Williams . The Nets last made the playoffs in 2015, losing in the first round to the Atlanta Hawks after a sub-.500 regular season.

In July, FBI agents raided the Virginia home of Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort, whose financial and real estate dealings and prior work for a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine are being investigated by Mueller's team.

And he was returning to questions about Clinton's use of a private email server and how Former FBI Director James Comey handled an investigation into the matter, which was closed with no charges being filed.

After breaking the news of the charges, and with limited information, CNN commentators, journalists and legal experts went on to speculate about who might be charged, and what the charges might be.

Multiple congressional committees have undertaken their own investigations into Russian meddling in the elections, following up on the conclusion of US intelligence agencies that Moscow sought to sway the contest in favor of Trump - an idea that he has frequently dismissed as a hoax.
