Ryan: Congress will not interfere with Mueller investigation

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller should not be fired or step down, and needs to be allowed to follow his Russian Federation investigation to its end.

On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked Ryan why he is pushing a bill that contradicts his prior promise that the bill would be "deficit neutral" and abandoning his longstanding claim of being a deficit hawk. So I don't think he should be stepping down, I don't think he should be fired, and the president has made clear he's not going to do that.

Ryan said, "No, I don't think he should be stepping down".

Republican Reps. Matt Gaetz (R., Fla.), Andy Biggs (R., Ariz.) and Louie Gohmert (R., Texas) introduced a measure on Friday seeking Mueller's resignation from the probe for what they call conflicts of interest.

Ryan's comments likely bely any hope both initiatives have for success.

Mueller revealed on Monday that former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about his contact with Russian actors during the campaign. NBC News reported Sunday that the special counsel may soon move against Michael Flynn, who briefly served as Trump's National Security Adviser.
