Former National Security Agency head James Clapper predicted Friday that President Donald Trump is 'prepping the battlefield' for action to counter the legal probes that have bedeviled his term after the November elections.

Trump on Thursday indicated Attorney General Jeff Sessions was safe for 10 weeks, called special counsel Robert Mueller's probe 'illegal,' and accused NBC of 'fudging' video where he said Russia was on his mind when he fired FBI Director James Comey.

All three tactics could point to Trump laying the groundwork for a series of moves after the elections, which he could execute even if Democrats capture the House, which they are slightly favored to do.
