Trump continues to raise new challenges to Mueller and his investigation

NY Times:

Trump Says Appointment of Special Counsel is ‘Totally Unconstitutional’

The president also said he has the power to pardon himself, raising the prospect that he might take action to immunize himself from the ongoing Russia investigation.
I think what Trump is really doing is causing Mueller's team of "angry Democrats" to have to hit the law books to fight off future challenges to their authority as well as their case if any.  Lawyers whose work I respect have also made the case that Mueller's appointment was unconstitutional.  To be valid it requires that the special counsel be nominated by the President and approved by the Senate like any other US attorney.
