President Trump said Wednesday that he’s considering bringing “a major lawsuit” against unidentified people regarding former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, accusing Mueller of treating him and his associates unfairly.
“We’ve been investigating on a personal basis, through Rudy [Giuliani] and others, lawyers, corruption in the 2016 election. We’ve been investigating corruption because I probably will, I was going to definitely, but I probably will be bringing a lot of litigation against a lot of people having to do with the corrupt investigation having to do with the 2016 election,” Trump said during a press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö.
“I’ve been looking at that long and hard for a long period of time, how it started, why it started, it should never happen to another president, ever, but I’ve been talking about it from the standpoint of bringing a major lawsuit, and I’ve been talking about it for a long time,” he added.

Trump has long accused Mueller of political bias and misconduct during his two-year probe into Russia’s election meddling and obstruction of justice.
The former special counsel found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiracy to collude with Moscow but declined to make a prosecutorial judgement as to whether the president obstructed subsequent probes.
