US President Donald Trump has launched a fierce personal attack on former special counsel Robert Mueller, describing him as "totally conflicted".
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
He said the man who led the inquiry into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election had "wanted to be the FBI director, and I said 'no'".
The president also claimed the two had had a "business dispute".
Mr Mueller reiterated on Wednesday that his inquiry did not exonerate Mr Trump of obstruction of justice.
Following Mr Mueller's comments - his first public statement on his inquiry - Democratic presidential candidates called for the Republican president to be impeached.
But the Democratic leadership of the House of Representatives is sceptical of such a move. And any attempt to remove the president from office would almost certainly be rejected by the Republican-controlled Senate.
At the White House on Thursday morning, Mr Trump said impeachment was a "dirty, filthy disgusting word".
He said Mr Mueller was a "true Never Trumper", referring to his Republican critics during the 2016 White House race, and that his investigation was "a giant presidential harassment".
