With the federal investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation reportedly approaching its conclusion, Trump again berated Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team as partisan hacks out to get him, adding that "these people are sick".

In the longest speech of his presidency, Mr Trump railed against the inquiry into alleged collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

"Unfortunately, you put the wrong people in a couple of positions and they leave people for a long time that shouldn't be there and all of a sudden they are trying to take you out with bu****it, okay?"

Since being appointed special counsel in spring 2017, Mueller has obtained guilty pleas to a range of crimes from mulitple people who worked for Trump or his campaign: Cohen, former national security advisor Michael Flynn, former campaign chair Paul Manafort, ex-campaign and inaugural official Rick Gates, and former foreign policy advisor George Papadopolous.

Trump late Sunday complained about "Presidential Harassment" in investigations being led by "crazed Democrats" and of the "corrupt Mainstream Media that any president has ever had to endure" following three days of testimony by his former personal lawyer related to the Russian Federation investigation, campaign finance law violations and hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump ridiculed a Democratic "green new deal" plan to fight climate change, pointing to provisions such as reducing airplane flights or eating less beef. That could mean nearly anything; Schiff's committee can - and most certainly will - investigate Trump for the rest of the president's term. But only a minority of Republicans surveyed agree: 33 percent, compared with 48 percent who said they do not believe Trump committed crimes before being elected.

He took particular delight in going after the Democrats' Green New Deal, brought forward by some liberal Democrats in Congress and backed to varying degrees by several of the party's 2020 presidential candidates.

Cohen was sentenced last December to three years in prison for crimes including campaign finance violations over hush payments before the 2016 election to women who said they had sex with Trump.

"We're all in love together", he said.

- Materials that might shed light on Trump's negotiations over the duration of a real estate project in Moscow, which Trump concealed from the voters even as the GOP primaries were underway.

Asked about the investigations on Monday, Trump responded, "I cooperate all the time with everybody.

Likewise, the most vicious and corrupt Mainstream Media that any president has ever had to endure", Trump tweeted Sunday night. Democrats are harassing the President to distract from their radical agenda of making America a socialist country, killing babies after they're born, and pushing a "green new deal'" that would destroy jobs and bankrupt America.

In interviews with two dozen people in the small towns and villages south and west of Wisconsin's state capital, Madison, the upcoming report was met with frustration and exasperation, illustrating the dangers Democrats face with swing voters if they go too far on the issue.

The hard-charging U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan, otherwise known as the Southern District of NY, is behind the prosecution of Cohen, perhaps the most damaging case so far for Trump.

In his public testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cohen called the president a "con man" and a "cheat" and gave Democrats several new leads for inquiry.
