Grassley, Pelosi urge Trump: Let Mueller do his work

NYT: Trump Tried to Fire Robert Mueller Last June

"Fake news, folks, fake news". He suggested it could represent "bias, potentially corruption, at the highest levels of the FBI".

August 10, 2017 - Trump himself tells reporters in Bedminster, New Jersey, that he hasn't considered firing Mueller.

But near the end of the segment, Hannity made an about-face.

On Friday, Ruddy took an odd victory lap. Such a firing would have set the investigation back months, and possibly could have silenced it altogether. "I would do it under oath, absolutely". I had been told by very high-ranking senior White House officials that he was seriously moving in that direction. Of those, the greatest blunder was the move to fire FBI Director James Comey. The White House has repeatedly denied that Trump was looking at firing the special counsel.

Various members of the Mueller probe previously gave large donations to Hillary Clinton and other Democratic politicians. "Special Counsel Robert Mueller wasn't fired, so there's no obstruction", I ask what if Donald Trump had ordered Mueller to be "roughed up a little" as he did for some protesters during his campaign? As the temperature of his investigation rises, expect the president to act out in increasingly volatile ways, and to stretch the boundaries of the law to counter Mueller's probe.

"Since special counsel Mueller started his investigation there have been signs of smoke". Neither has responded to a request for comment. Richard Blumenthal renewed calls for Congress to pass a bill that would make it harder for Trump to unilaterally fire Mueller. We've all known people like this.

McGahn, though, has also said he did not know when he might be asked to leave a job, reports Savage. Grassley has said he will only consider one of the bills in committee but lawmakers have not yet settled the chosen legislation.

Both are believed to have agreed to cooperate in the Mueller investigation. Discussion of firing the special counsel quickly died down. If Mueller were to be dismissed, much would depend on his successor - who would, presumably, be appointed by Rosenstein.

Acting attorney general Sally Yates warned McGahn that Flynn was potentially vulnerable to blackmail after lying about contacts with Russian officials.

Faced with new reports damaging to their top-billed viewer, the hosts of "Fox & Friends" decided to go an odd route Friday morning: assume their audience isn't interested. The President then backed off.
