U.S. President Donald Trump contended Tuesday that prosecutors investigating his 2016 campaign's links to Russian Federation "will be MEDDLING" in November's congressional elections.

Trump will not agree to an interview with the special counsel until prosecutors allow the president's legal team to review documents related to the FBI's use of the informant, Giuliani said Tuesday. "I live in Alabama and not too many weeks ago a memorial to victims of lynchings occurred down here", she said during and interview with MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell.

The recusal put Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in charge of overseeing the probe.

"What I think he does with at least some of his allies - they're starting to undermine the rule of law", Warner said.

Trump's claim is his latest attack on the credibility of the Russian Federation investigation as being politically motivated, though it's a significant new step in his attacks on what is meant to be an independent probe working to get to the bottom of Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 election.


Giuliani has said publicly that the president is open to an interview, but Trump has since seized on a report of an informant, claiming without evidence that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was spying on his campaign and labeling the affair "Spygate".

"Just an excuse as to why the Dems and Crooked Hillary lost the Election and States that haven't been lost in decades", Trump tweeted. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has stonewalled Congressional and White House requests to learn more about the spy and the origins of the investigation.

Trump's attorney and "fixer" Michael Cohen has had his home and offices raided. "To a large extent, remember Dana, what we're doing here, it is the public opinion, because eventually the decision here is going to be impeach or not impeach", Giuliani said on CNN's State of the Union.

When polls suggested that he would lose to Clinton in 2016, Trump cast doubt on the validity of the election process and said at one point that he might not respect the outcome unless he won.

"He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn't a target of the investigation", Giuliani said.

Coons cited a May 19 story in the Times saying Trump Jr. met with emissaries who told him that princes who led Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates were eager to help the campaign.
