"I've been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime", he said.

Trump tweeted on Tuesday that "collusion is not a crime", echoing his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who made the claim on Monday morning.

The approval of the charges - details of which remain unclear - would mark a major step forward in the sweeping investigation into potential links between US President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential vote.

In the tweets, Trump largely resurfaced previous issues he has with the investigation, claiming Mueller personally has conflicts of interest - including a "contentious business relationship" - that should preclude him from running the investigation, accusing Mueller of bringing on too many Democratic investigators, and making a false claim about the origin of the Russian Federation investigation.

"I turned him down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation (one day before appointment as special counsel) and Comey is his close friend", Mr Trump said.

Giuliani said that, as a legal matter, there is no obstruction of justice claim. "Nobody. They should make the decisions about their lives based on the fact that they've got to deal with whatever the government is offering them or not offering them, how honest or dishonest they want to be", the lawyer continued.

In his tweets, Mr Trump also said the investigation was triggered by a damning dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, and questioned why Mr Mueller was not probing Democrats. "That's up to the president and Mueller to describe, it's not part of my legal representation".

The disappointment was greater in Samsung's information technology and communications business, which includes its smartphones. Samsung said it also chose to hand out dividends of 354 won per shares, with the combined amount of 2.4 trillion won.

U.S. intelligence agencies concluded in 2017 that Moscow meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign to try to tip the vote in Trump's favour.

"Enough is enough, ' Giuliani vented". "If there were any conflicts of interest that were brought to our attention, I would discuss with Mr. Mueller, and then there could be review within the department, if there were a credible allegation of a conflict of interest", Rosenstein answered.

The verbal assault was the latest Mueller bashing seen on Trump's Twitter timeline, where it is a recurring theme. 'I can't tell you, ' he siad.

Mr Trump has called the probe - which also seeks to determine whether his campaign team colluded with Russian Federation and whether he obstructed justice - a "witch hunt" and repeatedly demanded it be ended.

Asked whether the conflict was over the golf club dispute, Giuliani replied, "I'm not going to go any further".

The message marked the first time Mr Trump publicly elaborated on prior vague claims of conflicts of interest. Trump has also asserted he didn't know about the meeting. Only 1 with the president of the united States, ' Giuliani said.
