Trump's lawyers have yet to offer a clear indication of which way they're leaning.
In a subsequent interview with the Guardian, Frank said that Democrats' attitudes over the years is actually helping Trump widen his fan base.
Trump, who has repeatedly said that there was no collusion in the 2016 presidential election, reiterated his position this week when he said that the ongoing investigations into alleged Russian interference in the US' domestic politics were a "disgrace" to the U.S. and that special counsel Robert Mueller is a pawn in the Democrats' "conspiracy" to tarnish his presidency.
Earlier on Thursday, key members of Trump's national security team had appeared in the White House briefing room to warn that Russian Federation was continuing its efforts to interfere in the U.S. political system, saying Trump had directed them to make countering election interference a top priority. "It's the president's opinion". Moscow has denied such interference, and Trump has denied any collusion by his campaign or any obstruction of justice.
But Democrats on Wednesday blasted the president's statement as an example of obstruction of justice.
Zimbabwe presidential election too close to call
During Mugabe's rule, national elections were overshadowed by repeated voting procedure violations and the suppression of the opposition.
Trump also said on Wednesday that the charges against Manafort have nothing to do with Russian Federation collusion.
Manafort is scheduled to go on trial in September on separate charges brought by Mueller of conspiracy, money laundering and failing to register as an agent of a foreign government.
"The president's not obstructing, he's fighting back", said Sanders, dismissing the idea Trump's tweets could be tantamount to obstruction of justice.
Although the President has repeatedly criticized the investigation and Sessions' decision to recuse himself from overseeing it, Trump's tweet that his attorney general "should stop" the probe is notable and raises fresh questions about whether the President is attempting to obstruct justice. He also called it a "a disgrace to USA".
Trump's latest Twitter tirade came on the second day of the trial of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on bank and tax fraud charges, which stemmed from the probe but were not directly related to his time on the campaign.
"Paul Manafort worked for Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other highly prominent and respected political leaders", Trump tweeted.
Facebook Shares Sink; Further Growth Drops Expected
Wall Street didn't take too kindly to that: Facebook's stock price dropped almost 20 percent in after-hours trading. Facebook on Wednesday reported second-quarter sales and user growth that fell short of analysts' projections.
"It's not a secret: I think he'd like to kill the Mueller investigation any way he can, but I hope this country and particularly its representatives will not follow that", she said. He added that the team may be receptive to questions of obstruction "if they could show us one or two there, we can consider it".
Federal prosecutors revealed last month that he was afforded unusual privileges while in detention.
Mr Manafort's involvement in the Trump campaign spanned six months and he led efforts to secure the Republican nomination for Trump 2016.
Trump critics said they read the tweet as pointed interference in the Mueller investigation. "While the President has been inconsistent in his tweets, and some of the messaging that he's put on it, he's the only one in the government that hasn't been paying attention to this".
Six Republican senators going into a vote on Wednesday disapproved of Trump's tweet calling for an end to the probe.
