NBC recalls that Agalarov participated in organizing a meeting between son of US President Donald Trump Jr. and Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya during the election campaign of Donald Trump in 2016.

"There continue to be ongoing discussions", Sekulow said.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump says details related to Strzok would never go into Mueller's report.

The New York Times reports Robert Mueller's Russian Federation team is scrutinizing the president's tweets, examining whether tweets plus private pressure on top justice officials like Attorney General Jeff Sessions equal obstruction of justice.

Trump has denied collusion and obstruction, describing Mueller's investigation as a witch hunt. But the two senators said their plan has run into hurdles for months - and say the Russian threat is real headed into the midterms.

"The president is not obstructing, he's fighting back", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. "It's the president's opinion", Sanders said.

Mr Trump has called claims of collusion "a hoax!".

In addition, Agalarov also featured Donald Trump in one of his music videos in 2013.

To end the investigation, Sessions would either have to violate his recusal or announce that he is ending it.

Slamming Trump, Bharara said even if it is "on the basis of a non-recusal by Mueller no less".

"But I do think it would be a piece of evidence in the obstruction case going back to the firing of Comey because it shows Trump has this intense desire to shut down the Russian Federation investigation", he said. "He's certainly expressing the frustration", he has long felt over "corruption" by former Justice Department officials like former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, she said.

Trump has repeatedly denied that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

"How is it OK for Hillary Clinton to proactively seek dirt from the Russians by the Trump campaign met at the Russians request and that is bad?" "Mueller has an interest in creating the illusion of objectivity around his investigation", he said.

Mr Manafort's charges stem from his consulting work in the Ukraine, in which he allegedly received millions of dollars that he failed to report to the USA government.

So if Mueller finds evidence that the 2016 Trump campaign worked with a foreign power to sway the election, then conspiracy - not collusion - would be the charge.

In a further tweet, Trump suggested Manafort has been harshly mistreated.

Since Mueller began to lead the probe in May 2017, he has indicted or secured guilty pleas from 32 people, including several former Trump campaign aides. "Marc Thiessen, Washington Post", he tweeted.
