It's been 362 days since Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign. Since that day, President Trump has complained/kvetched/vented about the Mueller probe approximately 7,240 times. That may be somewhat exaggerated but only somewhat so, according to a new piece in The Washington Post detailing a year in the Mueller probe.
Here's the key excerpt:
"The President vents to associates about the FBI raids on his personal attorney Michael Cohen -- as often as "20 times a day," in the estimation of one confidant -- and they frequently listen in silence, knowing little they say will soothe him.
Trump gripes that he needs better "TV lawyers" to defend him on cable news and is impatient to halt the "witch hunt" that he says undermines his legitimacy as President."
First, "TV lawyers"!
But, more importantly -- 20 times a day! .
