U.S. President Donald Trump meets with bi-partisan members of Congress to discuss school and community safety in the wake of the Florida school shootings at the White House in Washington, U.S., February 28, 2018.
It comes after Trump said Tuesday at the White House that Russians did interfere in America's last presidential election - and other countries probably did too - but cautioned that the United States will counteract any attempt at meddling in the November 2018 midterms.
President Donald Trumpreportedly asked his former chief of staff Reince Priebus if special counsel investigators had been "nice" during his interview, according to The New York Times, citing two people familiar with the conversation. Worse yet, the article indicates that Trump tried to get White House counsel Donald F. McGahn II to deny what he had told Mueller's team - that the president had once asked him to fire Mueller.
Those conversations were revealed to Mueller in interviews with witnesses who considered the interactions as troublesome.
"Legal experts said Mr. Trump's contact with the men most likely did not rise to the level of witness tampering". The experts also said the episodes could serve as evidence for Mueller in an obstruction case. McGahn never issued such a denial. CBS News has also requested a comment from the White House. The President told McGahn that he did not remember the discussion that way.
Sources told the NYT that McGahn had to remind Trump that he had asked for the special counsel to be sacked. Bernie Nussbaum, who served as Bill Clinton's first general counsel, came under fire for what his critics decried as putting the president's personal legal needs ahead of the office of the presidency as the Clinton White House grappled with the Whitewater scandal.

"If he said anything along the lines of, 'There's potential criminal liability if you shut down this investigation, ' that would be extraordinarily powerful evidence against Trump".
Trump rhetoric ramped up as he strayed from the script and attacked enemies and fed off the emotion of the crowd. He suggested "maybe 10 percent or 20 percent of the population of teachers " should have concealed weapons.
