On Wednesday, Trump whined about how the Russia probe is interfering with his duties as president.

Trump tweeted, “There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap).”

He then went on to list the obstacles he is currently dealing with as president. He continued, “What there is is Negotiations going on with North Korea over Nuclear War, Negotiations going on with China over Trade Deficits, Negotiations on NAFTA, and much more. Witch Hunt!”

This is the second consecutive day where Trump slammed the Russia investigation. Meanwhile, there are talks of a potential interview with Mueller by his attorneys.

Later in the day, Trump tweeted what sounded like a threat to Mueller by John Dowd, one of Trump’s personal lawyers.

Trump tweeted, “This isn’t some game. You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.”

He continued, “With North Korea, China, the Middle East and so much more, there is not much time to be thinking about this, especially since there was no Russian ‘Collusion.’”

Reportedly, back in March, Dowd met with Mueller where he told him, “You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.”

Also, in another tweet, Trump questioned if Mueller had the authority to ask him about certain decisions he made- such as the firing of James Comey.

Trump tweeted comments from attorney Joe diGenova stating that questions about the firing of Comey “are an intrusion into the President’s Article 2 powers under the Constitution to fire any Executive Branch Employee…what the President was thinking is an outrageous… to the President’s unfettered power to fire anyone…”

Trump was referring to the comments by diGenova when he was on SiriusXM’s The Michael Smerconish Program.

In another tweet, Trump pointed to a book called “The Russia Hoax – The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump.”

Trump’s tweet comes just a couple days after The New York Times reported they were able to obtain a list of question that Mueller’s team wants to ask the President.
