Schiff says firing Mueller would echo Watergate

Schiff says firing Mueller would echo Watergate”

Regarding Ruddy's comments, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said: "Mr.

I think he's weighing that option", Ruddy told PBS "NewsHour" when asked if Trump would let Mueller continue in his role in the Russian Federation probe.

The notion was dismissed by senior White House aides later Monday evening, who said that Ruddy does not speak for the president.

White House officials said late Monday that Ruddy was at the White House that day, but said he hadn't meet with the president and never spoke with him about the issue.

"This seems like such a bad idea-for the nation, and for the President-that I have a hard time believing it is a live possibility", wrote Harvard Law Professor Jack Goldsmith, a former Assistant Attorney General and Special Counsel to the Department of Defense, in a blog post Monday.

On Tuesday morning, Trump supporter Ari Fleischer, who served as President George W. Bush's spokesman, again highlighted the issue of Mueller's probe being handled by attorneys who have donated mostly to Democrats, a message that Donald Trump Jr. quickly retweeted to his 1.7 million followers.

Scalise, 51, the No. 3 House Republican leader first elected to the House in 2008, was in stable condition and undergoing surgery. Republicans defended the use of that type of over-the-top rhetoric as an appropriate response to a bill they despised.

Both Republicans and Democrats praised Mueller when he was appointed the special counsel in May, calling him someone who would handle the allegations against the Trump administration in an unbiased and fair manner.

Trump has made it clear that he is frustrated by the investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election, which U.S. intelligence officials have said was done to tilt the outcome in Trump's favor.

Since being appointed special counsel in May, he has built a team of formidable legal minds who've worked on everything from Watergate to Enron.

Ryan echoed that sentiment, calling the reports about the president possibly moving to fire Mueller "a rumor".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., raised questions regarding Mueller's independence, however.

Ruddy also stated that Trump would be within his right to fire Mueller since there are certain conflicts of interest that exist regarding the past relationship shared by the president and the special counsel.

Mueller has always been widely respected by many in Washington from both sides of the aisle, with many lawmakers praising Deputy Rob Rosenstein's appointment of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that he leaked information from memos he wrote describing his private conversations with Trump.

Mueller was named special counsel a week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who had been handling the Russian probe.

"I said that the President was indeed considering that". "I can't imagine that anyone in the White House is seriously discussing that".

Of course the man leading that movement - US president Donald Trump - continues to produce head-scratching responses to the scandal. Sessions has recused himself from the investigation.

Rosenstein said that if he fired Mueller, he would be required to explain it in writing. If the regulations were rescinded, Trump would no longer be required to cite any cause in removing Mueller. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) suggested it could lead Congress to re-establish an independent counsel statute and reappoint Mueller.
