Trump weighs firing Mueller, according to confidante

18 Junio 2017, 08:17 | Dolorita Barahona

President Donald Trump may fire Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who is now in charge of the Trump-Russia investigation.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said he has seen no reason to fire the special prosecutor investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. But Sessions has recused himself from the investigation, which means if Trump wants Mueller fired, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would have to do it.

Gingrich struck a different chord in an interview with CBS' "This Morning" on Tuesday, flatly denying that Trump is considering firing Mueller.

"I think there's very serious questions about Director Mueller running the special prosecution of the president", Ruddy said Tuesday on MSNBC's "For the Record with Greta Van Susteren".

Democratic senators repeatedly criticized Sessions for dispatching Rosenstein to testify Tuesday in his place about the Justice Department's budget to an Appropriations subcommittee.

CNN cited a source close to Trump as saying the president was "being advised by many people" to not fire Mueller, who led the Federal Bureau of Investigation between 2001 and 2013. Coulter suggested that because Comey had testified that Trump hadn't been personally under investigation while he was FBI director, the objective of Mueller's commission "is now over".

The latest appointments from Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation could be a more ominous indication of trouble on the horizon for the Trump administration.

"I don't think that's a question for me to answer", Rosenstein responded. Sessions became attorney general in February but did not recuse himself from that probe until March.

Said Ryan: "I know Bob Mueller".

Apart from Rosenstein and Sessions, the only confirmed Justice official is Rachel Brand, the associate attorney general, whom the Senate approved on a party-line vote.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an informal Trump adviser, tweeted Monday, "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair".

Vega appeared to try and put the viewers' fears to rest when she explained that "President Trump cannot directly fire Mueller himself, but he could instruct his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to do so".

"I think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel", Christopher Ruddy said during an appearance on PBS' "NewsHour".

"I have determined that a special counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome", Rosenstein said last month. And even if Trump tried, according to Abramson, Mueller could refuse to go. Look who he is hiring.check fec reports.

That conversation was reportedly detailed in a memo authored contemporaneously by Comey, whom Trump abruptly fired last month.

Democrats, reacting to the chatter, said that if Trump fired Mueller they'd try to enact an independent counsel statute so they could appoint him. The person demanded anonymity to discuss strategy on the sensitive matter.

A source close to the president said Trump is being counseled to steer clear of such a dramatic move such as firing the special counsel. The order by the general counsel for his transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government. "And I'm not going to speculate on what he will or will not do", Sekulow said.
