Trump calls probe by special counsel Mueller into election meddling ‘an attack on our country’

President Donald Trump is calling special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into election meddling “an attack on our country” during a White House meeting with top military advisers.

Trump is offering a critical take on the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the election, saying the probe is a distraction.

The president is criticizing the federal raid of the offices of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Cohen has been under scrutiny over a $130,000 payment to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump more than a decade ago.

The raid was conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan and was based at least in part on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mueller reports to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
