AG Rosenstein sees no reason to fire Mueller

Show Caption

Laura Ingraham appeared on "Fox & Friends" this morning to slam reports that President Donald Trump is "considering" firing Robert Mueller, the Justice Department special counsel investigating possible ties between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. "If there were not good cause, it wouldn't matter to me what anybody says". "It wouldn't matter to me what anybody said".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions in early March recused himself from the Justice Department's Trump-Russia probe following The Washington Post reporting that he had twice met with Kislyak while a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He added later: "As long as I'm in this position, he's not going to be fired without good cause", which he said he would have to put in writing. Comey then said he requested that Sessions never again leave him alone with President Trump.

"I'm not going to follow any orders unless I believe those are proper and appropriate orders", he said.

In the letter Trump sent to Comey informing him that he was being fired, the president wrote that he had received memos from Sessions and Rosenstein "recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation". The comments come amid increasing frustration at the White House and among Trump supporters that the investigation will overshadow the president's agenda for months to come - a prospect that has Democrats salivating.

"Think he's considering, perhaps terminating the special counsel. I personally think it would be a significant mistake".

"You can raise those concerns" to both Mueller and the DOJ, Rosenstein told Graham. Sessions has recused himself from the Russian probe, a move that gave Rosenstein the authority to appoint a special counsel.

"I always speak for myself and not the president. Although I think they are in need of help from time to time", Ruddy said on CNN.

A person familiar with Trump's thinking said Tuesday that it is "unlikely" he will fire Mueller, but acknowledged that it is often hard to predict Trump's behavior.

Rod Rosenstein told lawmakers of a Senate appropriations subcommittee that he has seen no good cause to remove special counsel Robert Mueller from the probe.

While the White House has denied any intention to fire Mueller, close associates of Trump, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, are increasingly criticizing the Russian Federation probe as too "political".

However, White House sources told The Times that Trump is hard to predict, and they can not be sure he won't fire Mueller.

Spicer did not outright discount the notion of removing the special counsel, but he noted Ruddy was not a spokesman for Trump.

Sessions is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday afternoon.

Schumer said, "We've had two people now who have devoted themselves to law enforcement to the country for most of their lives, most of their professional lives-first Comey, now Mueller".

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.
