White House counsel was 'fed up' with Trump

"The most important thing Congress can do right now is to ensure that special counsel Mueller's investigation continues uninterrupted and unimpeded", the NY senator said in a statement Sunday. When asked by reporters at the White House, Trump said: "I'm looking forward to it, actually".

Two Republican senators say President Donald Trump would be wise to keep a public silence on an independent investigation into his 2016 campaign's contacts with Russian Federation.

But all these months later, the story has leaked and the timing is curious, to say the least.

While Trump has repeatedly labeled the probe a "hoax" and "witch hunt", several Republican lawmakers have in recent weeks argued the FBI, and Mueller's investigation as a result, is infected with bias. There is no obstruction whatsoever.

Graham said Mueller is "the ideal guy to get to the bottom of this", and his bill would give Mueller "the space to do it".

According to Dowd, the White House produced almost 13,000 pages of documents related to Comey and "issues regarding Michael Flynn and Russian Federation". Mueller's team has completed its interviews with former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former FBI Director James Comey, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He stated that he doesn't know the status of the negotiations but like Mr. McCarthy does not see the need for urgency as he believes that right now, there isn't evidence to suggest that Mr. Trump wants to fire Mueller.

That reaction is nearly universally negative, as we learned when rumours of Mueller's ouster first surfaced last summer.

"I've got legislation protecting Mr. Mueller, and I'd be glad to pass it tomorrow", Graham told ABC's This Week program.

Bob Bauer observes on the Lawfare blog, "McGahn would have had every reason to object to the peculiar, if not wholly specious, grounds that the president apparently asserted for a firing".

Republicans have indeed been upping their efforts to discredit Mueller, whose investigation is seen as a threat to the legitimacy of Trump's presidency.

Mueller is a George W. Bush appointee that Barack Obama retained during his administration. Graham said. "So I think we're in a good spot with Mr. Mueller". "That's coming down the pike and when it happens it will be a constitutional crisis".

"It's the same thing you did when you were the independent counsel, right?"

A secret, highly contentious Republican memo reveals that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein approved an application to extend surveillance of a former Trump campaign associate shortly after taking office last spring, according to three people familiar with it. "So what is the alleged illegality here that could possibly "hamper" or obstruct the investigation?" Cornyn are the leads in the Senate, but they've been very open to input. "And that's where the crisis comes", said Seidman.

Starr noted, however, that reports about Trump's near-firing of Mueller do not make an obstruction of justice charge more likely. Strzok was dismissed from the investigation after the messages first came to Mueller's attention last summer. "They're lying to people out there".

She said other Trump proposals for immigration change, including a crackdown on illegal immigrants and legal immigration for extended family members, are too complicated to tackle at this point.
