Trump on Mueller probe: 'I view it as an illegal investigation'

"I view it as an illegal investigation," President Donald Trump said today, referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

"I'm not saying anything—I'm just telling you this: You read the great scholars, the great legal—there should have never been a special counsel," Trump told Margaret Talev and Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg News.

Asked whether he'd comply with a subpoena from Mueller to answer questions, Trump told reporters, "I'll see what happens."

"I view it differently. I view it as an illegal investigation" because "great scholars" have said that "there never should have been a special counsel," the president said.
