U.S. President Donald Trump dismissed the accusations that he plans to sack special counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing the alleged Russian interference into the 2017 presidential election.

The simmering tensions between Trump and Mueller’s probe mounted on Saturday after a lawyer for Trump’s presidential transition group accused special counsel’s team of illegally accessing thousands of emails, writes the BBC.

Trump, who earlier dubbed the probe as “a witch hunt,” added that the Americans are prepared to “turn the page,” as no evidence of any collusion with Russia has emerged even after spending millions of dollars on the investigation, notes The Guardian
