U.S. President Donald Trump has avoided sitting down with Special Counsel for the Russia investigation Robert Mueller’s team for months. Wednesday morning, in the middle of ongoing negotiations over the terms of a potential presidential interview, Trump lashed out on Twitter against Mueller — again — this time going so far as to call for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to shut the whole thing down. Now, we may know why.

In one of the latest Trump tweets to set off the national political conversation, the president wrote Wednesday morning:

‘Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!’

ABC reports that the above tweet came after President Trump learned that Mueller still wants to ask him about obstruction of justice, although overall, the outlet claimed that the special counsel had agreed to “limit the scope of questioning.”

Further details about a potential presidential sit-down with the special counsel’s team were not immediately widely available Wednesday. Trump ally turned lawyer Rudy Giuliani shared with reporters in New Hampshire this week that the ball is currently in the Trump team’s court. According to the former mayor, the special counsel’s office has now responded to a recent counterproposal concerning the terms of a presidential interview from the Trump team, and the president’s lawyers are working on their response.

As Giuliani noted, the president has made — at least in the past — a show of openness to sitting down with the special counsel’s team.

As he put it to reporters:

‘I’ve heard [Trump] say I want to be interviewed if my lawyers can reach an agreement on what the ground rules will be. We’ve had a hard time doing that… but we’re still negotiating.’

Despite occasional shows of support for the idea of meeting with Mueller, Trump and his associates have pushed back hard against the allegations that have been raised. To be clear, though, Mueller has made no formal charges of wrongdoing against the president — Trump and his lawyers are just freaking out.

This point became especially important recently when GOP leaders in the U.S. House sought to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller. They went after Rosenstein for allegations of collusion with Russia against the president’s team — but the Department of Justice has made no such allegations. Again, they’re just freaking out.

Giuliani sought to downplay the president’s Wednesday freakout during his aforementioned comments to reporters in New Hampshire, saying:

‘It’s an opinion, and [Trump] used the medium that he uses for opinions — Twitter… he’s established a clear sort of practice now that he expresses his opinions on Twitter. He used the word “should,” he didn’t use the word “must”… He didn’t direct [Sessions] to [stop Mueller] and he’s not going to direct him to do it.’

Whether Giuliani’s prediction that Trump won’t issue a concrete directive to stop the Russia investigation remains to be seen. For now, we’re left with a U.S. president who prefers ranting on Twitter to answering some questions about the obstruction of justice he’s supposedly so not guilty of.
