Veteran criminal defense lawyer John Dowd has attacked Robert Mueller's investigation in Russia as a "terrible waste of time" and has questioned whether a report will be produced.
Dowd, who served as a member of President Donald Trump's legal team from June 2017 to March 2018, made the explosive comments during an interview with ABC News.
