Republican Senator Susan Collins said President Donald Trump should "step back" and "not comment" on special counsel Robert Mueller while he oversees the federal investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

He initially said his decision not to do so was because he was under audit by the IRS.

"I know it's hard, but he needs to step back and not comment", Collins told host John Dickerson on CBS "Face the Nation".

In an interview with The New York Times on Wednesday, Trump accused Mueller of running an investigation riddled with conflicts of interest and said the special counsel would cross a line if his probe expanded to include the Trump family's finances. She says Mueller is an "individual with the utmost integrity" and he must be allowed to complete his investigation.

Sen. Collins, in addition to being a part of the Senate Intelligence Committee probing Russia's meddling in the past election, is one of the potential holdouts of the GOP's plan to repeal and/or replace Obamacare next week.
