In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, the president quoted GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy's explanation of why he thinks the president is upset with the recusal. "If I were the President and I picked someone to be the country's.", one Gowdy quote read.
"There are lots of really good lawyers in this country", he added.
The case of a California man who pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation is moving closer to sentencing.
"Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers", Trump tweeted in June 2017.
"You call them confidential informants because you don't want everyone to know they have a relationship with law enforcement", said Gowdy.
Trump has repeatedly referred to Mueller's team as "13 angry Democrats", although Mueller is a Republican.
Then Trump pivoted sharply back to the Mueller investigation, which he has elevated in status to "Rigged Witch Hunt".
Sanders said Trump remains concerned both about the FBI's use of a confidential informant - which Trump has branded a "spy" - during the campaign and about the "overall conduct of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
Last week, the president demanded that the Justice Department investigate revelations that an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant was in communication with at least three Trump campaign associates-George Papadopoulos, Sam Clovis, and Carter Page.
Trump and Giuliani tried to label that informant a spy and invented the term "spygate" in hopes of discrediting Mueller's investigation, but those efforts appear not to have caught on. The same day, Trump's lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani said the president 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 source.
