President Donald Trump is no longer confident that special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election will exonerate him of wrongdoing. And it turns out he may also have to worry what his subordinates said about him.
According to CNN, White House aides who cooperated with the Mueller investigation now fear reprisal when Trump discovers what they said about him to Mueller's prosecutors.
One GOP source described the fear of these conversations getting into the president's hands is "very high," adding "They cooperated and had to tell the truth. He is going to go bonkers."
Trump says he has not yet seen the Mueller report, but his increasing fear that the full body of findings will politically harm him has led him to redouble his attacks on the special counsel. On Saturday, the president tweeted, "So, let’s get this straight! There was No Collusion and in fact the Phony Dossier was a Con Job that was paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC. So the 13 Angry Democrats were investigating an event that never happened and that was in fact a made up Fraud."
