Graham uses Fox News appearance to ask Trump not to fire Mueller

Graham uses Fox News appearance to ask Trump not to fire Mueller”

Fox News host Shep Smith on Wednesday noted that although President Donald Trump's tweet announcement of his plan to strike Syria may be "historic", it also breaks a promise the president himself made about military action.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC offered advice for President Donald Trump in light of renewed worries he may try to dismiss special counsel Robert Mueller.

But with new reporting that Trump wanted Mueller fired in December, combined with the reports this week about how angry the President is at the special counsel, Graham reiterated his belief to Fox News' Martha MacCallum that Mueller should be allowed to do his job. "The Cohen situation I am convinced has got nothing to do with Russian Federation".

According to Graham, the raid appeared to be a reflection on Cohen and not President Donald Trump.

Graham's comments come amid the White House's veiled suggestion that Trump may have the authority and the inclination to fire Mueller. The reason the NY district of attorney was given this case is it's about Cohen, not Trump.

"I will not say when we are going to attack", Trump said in the clip from August 21, 2017.
