GOP lawmakers push back against Trump tweet about Mueller probe

Republican lawmakers are pushing back against President Donald Trump’s tweet Monday that Mueller was investigating Trump’s campaign’s ties to Russia and whether the president obstructed justice.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the chairman of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he was not aware of the tweet and would “wait for further information” from the White House before making a decision.

“I was not told by the White the tweet came from the president,” Gowdy said.

“I’m not aware if the president had any involvement with it or if he did.

And I would say, again, I’m waiting for further and further information on that.”

Trump’s tweet came after his lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, said he was looking into the tweet as part of a criminal investigation.

The president tweeted Monday night that Mueller’s team was “examining whether the President obstructed Justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey and others.”

He said the tweet “shows that Mr. Mueller has a real investigation going on,” according to the Washington Post.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that he fired Comey, who was heading the investigation into the Russia ties of the Trump campaign, in a bid to quash the FBI probe.

Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in March that he felt pressured by Trump to back off the investigation, but that he never told the president.

The investigation has taken a sharp turn after Trump fired Comey in May and was then forced to fire Mueller, who is the special counsel overseeing the probe.

Mueller’s office has said it will take the lead in the investigation as a result of the president’s decision to fire Comey.

Republican lawmakers, including Gowdy, have said Mueller’s probe is too broad to pursue.
