Schiff says firing Mueller would echo Watergate

But Chris Ruddy, the CEO of Newsmax and a friend of the President who attended meetings Monday at the White House, was the one who revealed that the issue was being discussed.

Sessions is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday afternoon.

Sanders said that while Mr. Trump has the right to fire Mueller, he has no intention of doing so.

Rosenstein said he was also unaware of any "secret plan" to get rid of Mueller. We don't know if it's going to happen or if it won't happen.

Rosenstein said Mueller can "only be fired for good cause", and it would be his job to put that good cause into writing.

He called because "I have been very clear" about Mueller and the lawyers he's hired amounting to a "rigged game", Gingrich said in an interview Tuesday on CBS.

Rosenstein, who was speaking before the senate appropriations committee because Sessions has recused himself from all matters related to the Russian Federation investigation, said that only he has the authority in the justice department to fire Mueller and that he would do so only if the president's orders are "lawful and appropriate". I never said that the President told me.

Technically, it's up to the attorney general to decide what to do with the special counsel.

A long-time friend of Donald Trump said on Monday that the President was considering whether to fire Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel investigating possible ties between the his campaign and Russian officials.

Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey worked closely for years in the George W. Bush administration, when Mueller was FBI director and Comey was deputy attorney general.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., raised questions regarding Mueller's independence, however. "I personally think it would be a significant mistake, even though I don't think there is a justification [for a special counsel]".

If Mueller knew he was going to be named special counsel, it is unlikely he divulged that information to Trump. Look who he is hiring.check fec reports.

Just weeks ago, Gingrich had heaped praise on Mueller, hailing him as a "superb choice" for special counsel whose reputation was "impeccable for honesty and integrity".

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (Cali.) posted on Twitter regarding the claim, "If President fired Bob Mueller, Congress would immediately re-establish independent counsel and appoint Bob Mueller".

"If Trump fires Mueller he won't have to worry about Congress cause We the People will demand his impeachment/yourfiredmrpresident!" he wrote. The option is still on the table, but Ruddy's move takes away the president's element of surprise.
