Firing Mueller Won't Make Everything Go Away For Trump Confidants

Firing Mueller Won't Make Everything Go Away For Trump Confidants”

But now sources are saying that United States president has authority to fire Mueller and if he chooses to do so they receive advice from justice department from legal scholars.

Meanwhile, the FBI's raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's office has turned up the heat on the president's inner circle still further. Chavez says: "We are facing the most serious constitutional crisis since Watergate".

"We need to ensure not only that Special Counsel Mueller can complete his work without interference, but that special counsels in future investigations can, too", Democratic Senator Chris Coons, one of the sponsors of the bill, said in a statement.

The possibility also looms that Trump could fire Sessions and install a new attorney general who would have the authority to take back control of the Russian Federation probe from Rosenstein.

But the president had been telling confidants for weeks that he was not eager to make the three-day trip, according to two people who have discussed it with him in recent weeks but were not authorized to disclose the private conversations.

"Why don't I just fire Mueller?"

President also said the things at the White House are clam calculated but the sources telling the USA president is angrier than ever before.

The raids were prompted by a referral from Mueller, answering to Rosenstein.

Trump dined Tuesday evening with Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, reports NPR's Mara Liasson, who reached him by phone Tuesday.

Trump has admitted that halting the Russian Federation probe was on his mind as he considered firing Comey.

Dershowitz, who has appeared on cable news critical of the investigation, said the president did not seem angry or distracted. He declined to say who else attended the dinner.

Graham said in the statement that the goal of the bill is to ensure a special counsel isn't fired for political reasons.

While declining to comment on Trump's next steps, she cryptically told reporters that White House officials have been advised by unidentified figures that the president had the legal authority to fire a special counsel.

Spokespeople for McConnell and the White House did not immediately respond to emailed requests for comments.

Trump later claimed the story was "fake news", during an address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Coons and Tillis introduced legislation similar to the new protective bill last August.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said it "looks more and more like a possibility" that the president will move to fire Mueller and shut down the investigation. On Monday, after the Cohen raid, he said it was "an attack on our country". John Thune of South Dakota said Zuckerberg's company had a 14-year history of apologizing for "ill-advised decisions" related to user privacy.

During roughly five hours of questioning by members of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees on Tuesday, Zuckerberg apologized several times for Facebook failures.

A bipartisan group of senators will introduce a bill today that would grant a judicial review before a special counsel can be dismissed.

Under the bill, the expedited review would determine whether the special counsel was sacked for good cause and write into law existing Justice Department regulations that say a special counsel can only be fired for good cause by an existing Justice official.

Republicans' posture has not changed since the last flare-up about Mueller's job security.

The tweets are the latest sign that Trump's anger with the Russian Federation probe has boiled over, which has alarmed lawmakers who worry he could fire Mueller, Rosenstein or Attorney General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsMeadows: Lawmakers "seriously" considering holding DOJ officials in contempt of Congress Ex-acting deputy AG Boente was asked to interview with Mueller: report The Memo: Fears rise of Trump move against Mueller MORE. When it was revealed in October that the Clinton campaign paid for the Steele dossier, Mueller should have pivoted off Trump and focused on Hillary Clinton. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Tuesday that Trump would be committing "suicide".
