Who could fire special counsel Robert Mueller

"I am not at liberty to talk about that now, and the reason for that is that if it is within the scope of Director Mueller's investigation ... we don't want people talking publicly about open investigations", he said.

NPR reported on Friday that Mueller was being considered to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation before being named special counsel.

Trump's best play would be to allow Mueller to do his job without interference, and - if Trump is telling the truth - declare the issue is dead for lack of substance.

The startling assertion comes as some of Mr. Trump's conservative allies, who initially praised Mr. Mueller's selection as special counsel, have begun trying to attack his credibility.

But Sanders would not say whether Trump had confidence in Mueller amid news reports that the president was considering whether to fire him from the post. She said such a move would "destroy any shred of trust in the president's judgment that remains over here".

Feinstein also asked if Rosenstein had an estimate for how long the investigation will take.

"Mr. Gingrich said Mueller was 'a superb choice" with an impeccable reputation for fairness just a few weeks ago, but now says that there is no way Mueller can be fair.

Under questioning from South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, whether a history of political donations would prohibit someone from being involved in the investigation.

The Internet Can't Get Over President Trump's Panama Canal Comment
French President Emanuel Macron recently bested Trump , only to have the Yanker-in-Chief strike again during a rematch. "And our - also, friendship with the president is very, very good", Trump was quoted as saying speaking of Varela.

'With respect to this subject, only the President or his attorneys are authorized to comment'.

The White House has said Donald Trump "has no intention" of sacking the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. And the Daily Caller reported on Tuesday that included an interview with Mueller.

He called because "I have been very clear" about Mueller and the lawyers he's hired amounting to a "rigged game", Gingrich said in an interview Tuesday on CBS. "If there were not good cause, it wouldn't matter to me no matter what anybody says", explained Rosenstein. "If there were not good cause it wouldn't matter what anyone said". "I do believe it would be catastrophic, and I do believe it would destroy any shred of trust in the president's judgment that remains over here", Senator Dianne Feinstein said.

If questions arise about what matters Sessions should stay away from, he said, a career official in Rosenstein's office is consulted.

Besides, he added, it should be Congress that carries out an investigation since it is given the role of oversight in the constitution.

As expectations mounted about the upcoming open hearing of attorney general Jeff Sessions on Capitol Hill, a friend of the president added a new twist to the Russian Federation controversy by suggesting Donald Trump might be considering dismissing the special counsel investigating it.

Meanwhile, a chorus of Trump supporters, from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to commentator Ann Coulter, is assailing Mueller's independence. "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair", Mr. Gingrich tweeted. Robert Mueller isn't a contestant on The Apprentice.

On Tuesday night White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters flying with Trump on Air Force One that the president wasn't going to fire Mueller, tamping down such rumors. Coulter suggested that because Comey had testified that Trump hadn't been personally under investigation while he was FBI director, the objective of Mueller's commission "is now over".
