Who is Emin Agalarov? Russian popstar who Mueller wants to question revealed

Trump also alleged that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is

Last week, the president's lawyers submitted a counteroffer to Mueller with specific conditions for an interview with Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Trump attorneys say both sides have exchanged proposals for conditions for such a Trump interview.

A central focus of Mueller's probe is whether Trump has obstructed justice in the Russian Federation investigation, and Wednesday's tweet could be scrutinized by the special counsel's team.

Sessions was an ardent Trump supporter and had met Russia's ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak during Trump's campaign and later had to recuse himself from the Russian probe according to the US Department of Justice guidelines.

In a series of tweets, he said Attorney General Jeff Sessions must halt the inquiry into alleged election meddling.

Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said the tweet was "an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight" and that "America must never accept it".

Sessions recused himself from overseeing the probe, leaving Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in charge of it.

"It's not an order, it's the president's opinion", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters, adding that Trump wants the probe to "come to an end".

"It's the president's opinion", she said.

Balber did not elaborate on whether Mueller is also interested in speaking to Agalarov's father, Aras Agalarov, a billionaire with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin (he was also related to the meeting between Trump and Veselnitskaya).

Trump brought up Manafort by name in a second tweet on Wednesday, saying that he has worked in the past for "highly prominent and respected political leaders", and that the charges against him "have nothing to do with Collusion", which he referred to as "a Hoax!"

In the past, Trump has privately pressed Sessions to end his recusal and take control of the Mueller probe, but those efforts have not been successful.

He's a Russian pop star who was involved in setting up that infamous 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between some of Donald's associates and some Russian operatives who promised to give the Trump campaign some dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told The Washington Post earlier this month that he believe such questions could unfairly expose Trump to claims of perjury.

"We acknowledge the threat, it is real, it is continuing, and we're doing everything we can to have a legitimate election", Coats said, adding: "It is pervasive, it is ongoing, with the intent to. drive a wedge and undermine our democratic values".

While some Republicans on Capitol Hill were critical of Trump's latest tweets, others were more reticent.

Trump Jr. has since downplayed the meeting, suggesting that it was primarily about Russian-American adoptions under the Magnitsky Act.

It is quite clear that the president's idea of Sessions ending Mueller's investigation did not go over well with Democrats.

The president's calls for the investigation to end come after he tweeted that "collusion is not a crime" ahead of Mr Manafort's trial.

"Looking back on history, who was treated worse, Alfonse Capone, legendary mob boss, killer and 'Public Enemy Number One, ' or Paul Manafort", he wrote.

"I've said all along I see no evidence of collusion".

Jens David Ohlin, a law professor at Cornell University, said the tweets would likely not be seen as an order to Sessions, but as "Trump venting his continued frustration with the fact that he can't control the Russian Federation investigation".

Litman, meanwhile, told anchor Brooke Baldwin that he would construe Trump's tweet as a command.
