Mueller is known to be close friends with former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, whose credibility he would have to weigh against the president's if Mueller made a decision to probe whether Trump committed obstruction of justice by expressing the hope that Comey would be lenient with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The comment came in response to questions from Democratic Sen. There's no reason to fire Mueller. That would have to be done by the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, given that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from DOJ's Russian Federation investigation.
Forewarned is forearmed. So perhaps the country is lucky that President Trump's allies have floated the possibility he might fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
"I'm not going to follow any orders unless I believe those are proper and appropriate orders", he said. She spoke to reporters as Trump returned to Washington from an event in Wisconsin.
And the Daily Caller reported on Tuesday that included an interview with Mueller.
Sunday with double dose as Pakistan faces India in Cricket and Hockey
The Pakistani captain had revealed that he is a great admirer of Dhoni. "Though the team is ranked below us, we don't want to take them lightly". "Our aim is to improve with each performance throughout the tournament".
"It's a mistake to pretend that this is going to be some neutral investigation", Gingrich said.
When West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin asked Rosenstein if Mueller could be "terminated without cause", Rosenstein said "yes".
He noted that this was the same newspaper that was "dead wrong" when it reported that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein threatened to resign during the firing of FBI Director James Comey and when it reported that Comey requested for "more resources" for the Russian Federation investigation before he was sacked.
The Post, citing unnamed sources, said the investigation into the president's own conduct began shortly after Trump fired Comey on May 9. I never said that the President told me.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says he has seen no evidence of good cause to fire the special prosecutor overseeing the Russian Federation investigation. A firing of Mueller following the firing of Comey would pretty much turn the entire Federal Bureau of Investigation and most of the IC against the President.
Escaped Georgia inmates captured in Tennessee after chase
The escape of the armed men prompted a manhunt that lasted almost three days, spanned several states and put the region on edge. This undated photo released by the Georgia Department of Corrections Tuesday, June 13, 2017, shows inmate Donnie Russell Rowe.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer did not explicitly endorse Sessions' appearance, saying in response to a question, "We're aware of it, and we'll go from there".
The effort to muddy the waters surrounding the investigation is coming amid growing White House concern that the probe could detract from the president's agenda for months or years to come. The person demanded anonymity to discuss strategy on the sensitive matter.
Ruddy appeared to be basing his remarks, at least in part, on comments from Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump's legal team, who told ABC in an interview Sunday that he was "not going to speculate" on whether Trump might at some point order Rosenstein to fire Mueller.
"The tiny wrinkle is that people who believe in a robust form of the unitary theory of the executive - the idea that the president should control the exercise of all elective power - might argue that the president retains this authority or discretion given that the prosecutor is an executive branch official", Michael Gerhardt, Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of North Carolina School of Law, told LawNewz.com In Meyers v.
Reports say Mueller probe now examining possible obstruction
Even if President Trump had wanted to impede in the case, firing the FBI Director would in no way accomplish that. Comey told Congress last week that he believed he was sacked "because of the Russian Federation investigation".
