Mark Levin Rips Russia Probe: 'Mueller Is Out to Destroy' Trump

Conservative commentator Mark Levin ripped apart special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, accusing the former FBI director of trying to take down President Donald Trump.

Levin appeared on Sean Hannity's show Thursday night and told the Fox News host he's had enough of the Department of Justice probe that's been looking at claims that Trump may have colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

A recent report suggested Mueller may be focusing on a potential obstruction of justice charge against Trump.

"Let's be clear about something: the media treats this guy like he's a judge. He's not a judge. He's a prosecutor. And there are two sides to every argument," Levin said. "Number two, he is going to put out a report accusing the president of the United States of obstruction of justice? When, in fact, that means that the president of the United States will be accused of obstruction of justice for impeachment purposes?

"That leak should tell the president of the United States everything he needs to know, which is that Mueller is out to destroy him.

"He is out to run a report to give it to the Democrats and the House of Representatives."

Earlier in the interview, Levin cited a DOJ policy that prevents a sitting president from being indicted. And that, he said, is what Trump and his lawyers should reference in an attempt to block Mueller from forcing Trump to testify in front of the grand jury impaneled for the investigation.

"You go to the federal judge and you say to the federal judge, 'your honor, my client can't be indicted.' That is the position of his bosses so why is he going in front of a federal grand jury?" Levin said. "'Well we need him as a witness.' A witness to what? What criminal statute, or what criminal violations, do you think he was a witness to that he needs to testify to?

"'Well, we think he may have committed obstruction. And even though we may not charge him' — excuse me, Mr. Mueller. This is a criminal grand jury. This isn't being done so you can issue your report. So there are many constitutional obstacles of course to this argument that the president obstructed justice." Trump has denied colluding with Russia and obstructing justice, a claim that manifested after Trump fired FBI director James Comey last spring
