An element of Mueller's investigation includes whether Trump or anyone in the campaign tried to obstruct justice. The attorney general has recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation because he played a role in Trump's presidential campaign. He tweets this sort of thing at Sessions every month, if not more often.
Trump alternatively sought to distance himself Wednesday from Manafort, whom he has know for decades, and complained he is being mistreated.
"It's clear to me he's very anxious about it and he wants to prevent it any way he can", said Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.
Jackson tonight told Wolf Blitzer, "I am of the view that it is not at all obstruction of justice".
Mr Trump has called claims of collusion "a hoax!".
Writing on Twitter, Trump dismissed the charges against Manafort as "old charges (that) have nothing to do with Collusion" and questioned why the government didn't tell him Manafort was under investigation before he hired him to be part of his 2016 campaign. And asking him to do it publicly is a form of pressure, since of course the AG serves at the president's pleasure. The move came after testimony during his appointment hearings in which Sessions was evasive about meetings during the campaign with Sergei Kislyak, Russian ambassador to the U.S.

"Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign, one of the most successful in history, is a TOTAL HOAX", he tweeted Wednesday.
Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee said there would be "chaos" in Congress if Trump were to act against Mueller.
Mr Austin added: "The second is Paul Manafort the former campaign chairman". Thirteen other Russians and three Kremlin-linked companies were indicted by the special counsel in February. He was out to STOP THE ELECTION OF DONALD TRUMP.
"The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls".
Trump was closely monitoring news coverage of the Manafort proceedings, which provoked the spate of incendiary tweets, according to the two Republicans and two White House officials.
But in a Tuesday morning tweetstorm, the president effectively argued that the probe is already threatening to interfere in the vote - and questioned again why the team is not investigating "totally Crooked Hillary Clinton" and Democrats.
