Mueller investigation ‘illegal’, says U.S. President Donald Trump

Washington, U.S. President Donald Trump criticized special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling Thursday, calling it “illegal.”

“I view it differently,” Trump told Bloomberg in an interview. “I view it as an illegal investigation.”

The president cited “great scholars” who have said “there never should have been a special counsel.”

Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
