Trump tweets legal threat to Mueller team

President Trump issued a legal threat to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team in a Monday tweet, telling the "13 Angry Democrats" on the team to "just wait ‘till the Courts get to see your unrevealed Conflicts of Interest!"

Reality check: While 13 members of Mueller's team have previously registered as Democrats, Mueller himself is a registered Republican. The other four investigators in the probe have no affiliation, per the Washington Post.

And earlier this morning, Trump again addressed the possibility that he obstructed justice, saying "There is no O, it's called Fighting Back."
