Ex-Clinton strategist Mark Penn on Sunday slammed Robert Mueller's investigation and said the special counsel investigating possible collusion between Russia and members of Trump's campaign team was "absolutely after" President Donald Trump.
"I still see that we don't have the answer here — how this got started, why there was an independent counsel, why there are people from, who represented the Clinton Foundation on Mueller's staff," Penn told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."
"All of these questions here remain unanswered and Mueller seems to have runaway power you know, using storm trooper tactics almost," said Penn, chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.
"I don't want to go overboard, but to really go after people and their family in the ways that he has for unrelated offenses, is really all the kinds of things our Constitution was set up to prevent."
Trump jumped on Penn's comments, tweeting partial quotes from his interview and calling the probe "a disgrace."
Mueller is seeking an interview with Trump, but the president's lawyer Sunday said "we're leaning toward not" sitting down for one.
Rudy Giuliani, who appeared on ABC's "This Week," said "there's got to be a high bar they have to reach in terms of convincing us that they're fair, convincing us that we're going to get the things we need," in regard to the interview.
