Trump lashes out in tweets at special counsel

- President Donald Trump is taking out his frustrations over the intensifying Russia investigation by lashing out at special counsel Robert Mueller.

Twitter rants by Trump signal a possible shift away from a strategy of cooperating with a probe the president believes is biased against him.

In a series of weekend tweets naming Mueller for the first time, Trump criticized the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and raised fresh concerns about the objectivity and political leanings of the members of Mueller's team.



Trump also challenged the honesty of fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe and former FBI director James Comey, whom Trump fired last year over the Russia probe.

Two Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee say they want to review whether McCabe's firing was justified.
