Schiff says firing Mueller would echo Watergate

Schiff says firing Mueller would echo Watergate

Of course, Rosenstein's answer does not confirm that Mueller is definitely exploring the issue.

Despite that, Trump is stewing over the Mueller-led investigation in the same way he did with Comey. "If there were not good cause, it would not matter what anybody says".

"He had a private conversation with the President on his views about all sorts of matters potentially about the investigation", Ruddy said.

Gingrich, who only a few weeks ago called Mueller a "superb choice" with an "impeccable" reputation, tweeted on Monday: "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair". Brian Schatz about the scope of Sessions' recusal, Rosenstein said Sessions "actually does not know what we're investigating, and I'm not going to be talking about it publicly".

The act was widely criticized after Kenneth Starr's lengthy investigation into Clinton, and in 1999, Congress allowed the independent counsel provisions of the law to lapse.

Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said Tuesday he sees special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of possible Russian collusion as a threat to Donald Trump's presidency because Mueller appears "out to get the president".

Trump refused to respond to a reporter asking four times Tuesday whether he will fire Mueller, potentially trying to create some suspense.

"The attorney general is the one who has to fire him", said CNN's senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin on "Anderson Cooper 360".

The White House has denied those claims.

House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Tuesday any talk about Trump wanting to rid himself of the special investigator amounts to "rumor".

Conservative news outlets have been working hard to discredit Mueller in recent days, citing what Fox News' Sean Hannity called his "massive conflict of interest"-a friendship with fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey".

"The best advice would be to let Robert Mueller do his job", Ryan said, adding he had confidence in Mueller.

Trump supporters such as Newt Gingrich and others have seemed to be greasing the wheel for the eventual ouster of Mueller.

Yet during the hearing, Sen.

Leahy told Rosenstein "you are not the witness who should be behind this table".

Newt Gingrich is so upset by the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation and possible collusion and other potential crimes that he now says Congress should abolish special counsels entirely.

Leahy says he wants to know why Sessions "has provided false testimony" about those contacts. The dismissal would come, he said due to reports of conflicts of interest involving Mueller and White House officials.

Though Ruddy was at the White House earlier in the day, those aides said he did not meet with Trump, but White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, a former conservative media leader himself.
