U.S. President Donald Trump departs the White House on his way to West Virginia on August 3, 2017 in Washington, DC.

For the first time, President Trump got specific with his criticisms of the investigation into possible connections between him, his election campaign and Russia. Going beyond the terms “hoax” and “witch hunt,” the president called out the special counsel team led by former FBI director Robert Mueller as deeply partisan.

This, after President Trump took to Twitter to applaud the firing of deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe and call James Comey — the FBI director Trump fired last May — a liar.

Could the president be setting the stage for an end to the special counsel’s probe?
