In wake of FBI raid on his lawyer, Trump continues to blast Mueller probe

The day after the offices of his personal lawyer were raided by the FBI, President Donald Trump on Tuesday again denounced the investigation involving his campaign and the question of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!" the President declared in a morning tweet.

Mr. Trump also complained that "Attorney-client privilege is dead," as the FBI seized materials and evidence from his longtime personal lawyer.

On Monday - before being asked any questions by reporters - Mr. Trump spoke at length about the raid involving his lawyer Michael Cohen, labeling the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller a 'witch hunt,' and again questioning the legitimacy of the probe.

Let's look at some of the issues raised by this turn of events.
