House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) joined the chorus of top Democrats warning President Trump from interfering with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigatory probe into Russian interference in the US elections and whether Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice in his actions since his election.
President Trump’s utter contempt for the rule of law was clear in his disturbing attack on Special Counsel’s investigation tonight. The integrity of our democracy is at stake. @realDonaldTrump must get serious about our national security & allow Mr. Mueller to #FollowTheFacts.

Pelosi joined her counterpart, Senate Minority leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) who also condemned Trump’s comments upon learning that the FBI had served a warrant on his personal attorney Michael Cohen and removed a mountain of documents and data from his office, home and hotel room earlier today.
If @realDonaldTrump is thinking of using the FBI raid to fire Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise interfere with the chain of command in the Russia probe, we Democrats have one simple message for him: don’t.

Trump lashed out at the Special Counsel and his team after the FBI properly executed a legally obtained search warrant to retrieve the documents and data from Trump’s personal attorney who has been heavily embroiled in the ongoing saga of the president and the porn star, Stormy Daniels.
With all of the trouble that Trump is having in finding new legal representation to handle the case Mueller is building, the FBI document seizure from one of the few people left who are willing to be associated with his legal woes is the kind of blow that innocent people would have little to worry about. That the president continues to protest too much indicates that there may be a lot to learn from the material the FBI now has in its possession.
