    Trump: 'Bothersome' how close Mueller is to Comey

    Trump: 'Bothersome' how close Mueller is to Comey

    In an interview with "Fox and Friends" scheduled to air Friday, President Trump says he is bothered by special counsel Robert Mueller's relationship with former FBI Director James Comey.

    "Well he's very, very good friends with Comey which is very bothersome," Trump told Fox News when asked if Mueller should recuse himself. "We're going to have to see."

    Trump told Fox News' Ainsley Earhardt in the interview that he was concerned that Mueller had hired attorneys that previously donated to Democrats, and doubled down on claims that there was no collusion between himself and Russia during the 2016 election.

    "There's been no collusion, no obstruction and virtually everybody agrees to that," Trump said. "So we'll have to see. I can say that the people that've been hired [by Mueller] were all Hillary Clinton supporters."

    Trump and his allies have been working to discredit Mueller for weeks. Last Sunday, Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow hit the Sunday news shows to attack Mueller and defend Trump, saying that the president is not under investigation.

    "There has been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation," Sekulow said Sunday. "I can't imagine a scenario where the president would not be aware of it."

    Mueller was appointed following Comey's abrupt firing by Trump last month, and is now heading up the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the election.
