President Donald Trump on Wednesday quoted comments from a Democratic Harvard professor on Twitter to complain about special counsel Robert Mueller, again.

Citing law professor, and former Hillary Clinton supporter, Alan Dershowitz’s comments during an interview on Fox News, Trump reiterated his frustration with Mueller and his probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump’s veiled pushback against the special counsel, follows tweets from the President over the weekend when he named Mueller for the first time in his attacks against the Russia investigation. The tweet raised fears among lawmakers that Trump was planning to fire the special counsel, a move that at least two Republicans have claimed would be an impeachable offense.

The White House has consistently pushed back on that message, saying this week that firing Mueller is not even under consideration.
