President Trump on Monday cast doubt on the credibility of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, asserting that some who worked on his presidential campaign were never contacted by the special counsel.

“When Mueller does his final report, will he be covering all of his conflicts of interest in a preamble, will he be recommending action on all of the crimes of many kinds from those ‘on the other side’ (whatever happened to Podesta?), and will he be putting in statements from hundreds of people closely involved with my campaign who never met, saw or spoke to a Russian during this period?”

“So many campaign workers, people inside from the beginning, ask me why they have not been called (they want to be). There was NO Collusion & Mueller knows it!” Trump said in a pair of tweets Monday.

The president’s comments come after his lawyers said last week they submitted Trump’s written answers to questions from Mueller about Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Trump frequently derides Mueller’s probe as a “witch hunt” that is run by a group of “angry Democrats.” He has also questioned Mueller’s credibility, tweeting about alleged conflicts of interest.

Trump's supporters have at times alluded to an alleged dispute over Mueller’s membership fees at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. Mueller resigned as a member in 2011.
