Rosenstein Says He Wouldn't Fire Special Counsel Mueller Without Good Cause

Rosenstein Says He Wouldn't Fire Special Counsel Mueller Without Good Causeā€

"And I'm not going to speculate on what he will or will not do", Sekulow said.

Session will also testify before the House later Tuesday, scheduled to discuss the department budget. Susan Collins, R-Maine, asked Rosenstein during an open Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing what he would do if Trump asked him to fire Mueller. "It wouldn't matter to me what anybody said".

I met Mueller only once, when he was assistant attorney general for the criminal division.

"I'm not going to follow any orders unless they are a lawful order", Rosenstein responded.

Trump's allies have begun raising questions about the former FBI director's impartiality, suggesting he can not be trusted to lead the investigation.

President Donald Trump has "no intention" of firing special counsel Robert Mueller who is investigating the alleged Russian meddling in last year's USA presidential polls, the White House has said.

The policy will maintain diplomatic relations and allow USA airlines and cruise ships to continue servicing the island. Trump aides said Thursday that Rubio was "very helpful" to the administration as it spent months reviewing the policy.

"I don't think donations are disqualifying at all, but if you represented the Clinton Foundation or Mrs. Clinton herself, that would be a bit disturbing", Graham said.

Firing Comey and then Mueller would leave Trump with the reputation of a man who will keep dismissing anyone serious about conducting an honest investigation.

The White House dismissed Ruddy's comments - but not by saying Mueller is safe.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Ruddy, who is a longtime friend of Trump, was not "authorized to comment", prompting Ruddy to accuse Spicer of "undermining one of your few allies".

Asked if he had confidence in Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to lead the Russian Federation investigation, Mr Sessions replied: "I have confidence in Mr Mueller but I am not going to discuss any hypotheticals", noting that he was not involved in the Russian Federation investigation.

"I think the best advice is to let Robert Mueller do his job", Ryan told reporters Tuesday after a closed-door meeting with House Republicans.

Well, maybe to be voted the world's top player again, just for good measure? "I have a year left in my contract and I think that I'll be here the next year".

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said President Donald Trump should not interfere with Independent Counsel Robert Mueller's Trump-Russia probe. Republicans and Democrats alike are calling for this investigation, for the process to continue. "Because Comey makes so clear that it's the poison fruit of a deliberate manipulation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation director leaking to the New York Times, deliberately set up this particular situation".

Trump does have the authority to remove the special counsel.

Ruddy told PBS that Trump was considering the dismissal because of concerns about conflicts of interest. "He is being advised by many people not to do it", the source said.

"Look, the president of the United States, as we all know, is a unitary executive".

It was not clear whether Mr Ruddy, who speaks to the president often, was basing his remarks on a specific conversation with him or entirely on Mr Sekulow's comments.

She said that she knows Ruddy well, and she expects that he will clarify his comments later today.
