White House denies Trump wants Mueller out, but heat's on

White House denies Trump wants Mueller out, but heat's on

On Monday night, Chris Ruddy, a friend of President Trump's, told "PBS NewsHour" host Judy Woodruff that the president was "considering perhaps terminating the special counsel" appointed to oversee the Russian Federation investigation, Robert Mueller.

Weeks ago, Gingrich had heaped praise on Mueller, hailing him as a "superb choice" for special counsel whose reputation was "impeccable for honesty and integrity".

"The Attorney General may remove a Special Counsel for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies". Again, if the president-I'd say this to the president and all the people around him.

Chris Ruddy, a friend of Trump's and the chief executive of Newsmax, a United States news outlet, went so far as to suggest the president was already thinking about "terminating" Mueller. US Justice Department regulations outline that a special counsel can be fired by the US attorney general "for cause". The Justice Department sent Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to testify about the budget instead.

Now, Trump could order Rosenstein to fire Mueller.

Whether Trump can fire Mueller is unclear.

Former FBI director James Comey, who was conducting an inquiry into possible collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Moscow, said in testimony last week that the president had referred to the investigation as "a cloud" over his administration.

"Think he's considering, perhaps terminating the special counsel".

Said Ryan: "I know Bob Mueller".

The deputy attorney general, the second-highest official at the Department of Justice, is managing the Russian Federation investigation at the department following attorney general Jeff Sessions's decision to recuse himself.

But Ruddy isn't the only Trump supporter who has raised the idea of firing Mueller. Sekulow said he wasn't going to speculate on whether the president might order Mueller's firing.

Democrats, reacting to the chatter, said that if Trump fired Mueller they'd try to enact an independent counsel statute so they could appoint him.

Ruddy originally shared his belief with PBS' Judy Woodruff on "PBS NewsHour" Monday after visiting the White House earlier.

On Monday Ruddy told PBS that he believed that the President was considering the possibility of termination of the special counsel Robert Mueller.

As expected, Mr Sessions also addressed a claim by former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey during his testimony to the committee last week that he had expressed his concern about a meeting with Donald Trump on February 14th to the attorney general but that Mr Sessions had not replied.

Criticism of special counsel Robert Mueller used to be off limits. He fired FBI Director James Comey, as he told NBC newsman Lester Holt, because of the Russian Federation investigation.

Sessions, a former Republican senator from Alabama for 20 years, is expected to face tough questions from his former colleagues on a number of fronts that he has never had to publicly address in detail.

Mr Ruddy was at the White House on Monday to meet government aides, but did not speak to the president, Mr Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer said. Ruddy later confirmed the comment to CNN.
