Trump Today: Trump Today: President calls Mueller’s team ‘thugs,’ and ‘national disgrace’

President Donald Trump on Monday attacked lawyers working for the special counsel, and also lashed out at Justice Department official Bruce Ohr as he hosted an event honoring immigration and customs agents.


On Twitter, the president called lawyers working for Robert Mueller “thugs,” and said the special counsel’s team was “a National Disgrace!” trying to influence the election.

It was the latest escalation in Trump’s rhetoric against the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. His attack came after the New York Times reported over the weekend that White House lawyer Don McGahn had sat for 30 hours of interviews with Mueller’s team. Trump said McGahn participated at his instruction.

“Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone looking for trouble,” Trump tweeted.


Trump also blasted Ohr, whose security clearance he has threatened to revoke. Ohr’s wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS, which produced the controversial Steele dossier, a document containing salacious but unverified information about Trump.

On Twitter, Trump asked if Ohr would be fired from “the Jeff Sessions ‘Justice’ Department? A total joke!” Last week, Trump called Ohr a “disgrace.”

Trump last week revoked the security clearance of former CIA chief John Brennan and said Monday he hopes Brennan sues. On Sunday, Brennan told NBC’s “Meet the Press” he’s “going to do whatever I can personally to try to prevent these abuses in the future, and if it means going to court, I will do that.”

Trump said a lawsuit from Brennan would produce records showing him to be “the worst CIA Director in our country’s history.”
