Friend Says Trump Weighs Firing Special Counsel Mueller

"Senator, I'm not going to follow any order unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders", Rosenstein said.

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.

Arkansas Rep. Steve Womack praised Mueller and told reporters "there is a ripple effect" as stories continue to develop on the ongoing probe.

When will Congress approve another round of Base Realignment and Closures (BRAC)?

Ed Rendell says that there may be some serious repercussions if President Donald Trump dismisses special counsel Robert Mueller.

The two of them proceeded to debate the past comments about the investigation from Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, as well as James Comey's leaking of his own memos to the media. "If there were not good cause, it wouldn't matter to me what anybody says", he testifies. "I have confidence in Bob Mueller".

In what is sure to ignite another firestorm of debate in polarized Washington, a longtime friend of President Trump said Monday night that Trump is "weighing" whether to dismiss Robert Mueller, the Justice Department special counsel investigating possible ties between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, warned on Twitter that "If President fired Bob Mueller, Congress would immediately re-establish independent counsel and appoint Bob Mueller". Ruddy said he thought firing Mueller would be a "significant mistake".

Trump's Twitter response followed days of intensifying criticism of Mueller from some conservatives who have charged the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director and his team with political bias and have claimed his relationship to Comey and an earlier meeting with Trump amount to conflicts of interest.

And a person familiar with Trump's thinking said Tuesday morning that it's "unlikely" the President will fire Mueller, but conceded that it's often hard to predict Trump's behavior.

The ploy worked. Rosenstein, who was handling the investigation because Sessions had already recused himself based on his involvement in the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, came under vast political pressure to appoint a special counsel.

Rosenstein was testifying hours ahead of a separate Senate appearance by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was expected to face sharp questions from his former colleagues about his role in Comey's firing, his Russian contacts during the campaign and his decision to step aside from the investigation involving Moscow and the Trump campaign.
