Trump news live: President slates Brexit negotiations as his former adviser Roger Stone appears in court

Donald Trump continued his attack on the Robert Mueller investigation last night ahead of his former adviser Roger Stone’s latest court hearing in Washington.

The president was particularly stirred by the release of transcripts of House Judiciary Committee interviews with FBI lawyer Lisa Page over whether the bureau had an “insurance policy” against Mr Trump’s election, the existence of which agent Peter Strzok appeared to suggest in a series of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with Ms Page during the 2016 campaign.
