Chuck Schumer warns Trump not to fire Robert Mueller

Talks between President Trump's legal team and Special Counsel Robert Mueller have collapsed, according to NBC News, and so Russian Federation investigators are looking to move forward without a presidential interview.

"Many people have said you should fire him", he responded to a question on dismissing the special counsel.

Bannon's latest scheme starts with the idea that President Trump should fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man responsible for appointing Mueller to the Russian Federation probe.

Earlier in the day, Trump took to Twitter to defend his conduct in the Mueller investigation as well as White House attorney Ty Cobb, who has also been attacked by Trump allies. Here's what to know.

As the investigation has worn on, Trump has repeatedly called it a "witch hunt".

"We need to ensure not only that Special Counsel Mueller can complete his work without interference, but that special counsels in future investigations can, too", Democratic Senator Chris Coons, one of the sponsors of the bill, said in a statement.

Trump's disdain for the excesses of the investigation has prompted speculation that the US president wants to fire Mueller and calls by Democrats in Congress for a law that would prevent Trump from doing so.

In March, Trump publicly lashed out at Mueller, insisting that the investigation "based on fraudulent activities" "should never have been started".

First, if the president actually removes the special counsel without good cause, it would likely result in swift, bipartisan backlash and shake the country's faith in the integrity of our legal system.

He's denying a report in The New York Times, and says that if he'd wanted to fire Mueller, he would have done so.

Bannon left the White House in August and was further pushed out of Trump's orbit in the aftermath of the publication of Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury book, in which he was a source. "Well, I think it's a disgrace what's going on". Mueller should be allowed to do his job.

"We'll see what happens", he said.

White House lawyers Ty Cobb and Donald McGahn have told Trump that firing Mueller would leave him vulnerable to charges of obstruction of justice, two officials told Reuters on Tuesday. The president's diatribes about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Mr. Rosenstein and the existence of the special counsel have, for most of the White House aides, become a dependable part of the fabric of life working for this president. "Just more Fake News from a biased newspaper!" Agents seized documents relating to a $130,000 payment Cohen made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, as well as emails, tax records and business documents, according to the Times. "No Collusion, so they go insane!" according to the President.
