MoveOn says hundreds of thousands of citizens, in 800 cities across all 50 states, have pledged to protest in the event Trump fires Robert Mueller. And now they say just based on probable cause, even though there was cooperation with Cohen, they can burst into the office, grab all the computers and then give it to another Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and say, you are the fire wall. Does he believe that's within his power?
'We've been advised that the president certainly has the power to make that decision'.
According to an earlier Times report, in June a year ago, White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign after the president tried to order the special counsel's dismissal, claiming that Mueller had conflicts of interest. Well, this morning, four senators announced a bipartisan bill to protect Mueller. That was one of the intended subjects of his Monday evening meeting with the defense secretary, the joint chiefs of staff and USA combat commanders. GOP senators overwhelmingly say they do not believe Trump will fire Mueller, and some have warned that Congress getting involved could make the situation worse by raising tensions.
The prosecutors obtained the warrants immediately after having a referral from Mr. Mueller, based to Mr. Cohen'therefore law firm. "I have assurances that it's not, because I've been talking to people in the White House about it". He is also looking at whether Trump obstructed justice by trying to interfere with the federal probe at any point. And if not, it would provide for reinstatement.
On Tuesday, some lawmakers had a message for the president following his latest comments suggesting that he hadn't ruled out firing special counsel Robert Mueller: If Mueller's job isn't safe, yours might not be so comfortable either.
Two Republicans and two Democrats have consolidated their separate bills to protect Mueller into a single piece of legislation that would, according to the sponsors, ensure that the special counsel can be fired only for "good cause". Republican leaders have steadfastly maintained that Mr. Trump knows the consequences of firing Mr. Mueller too well to do so.
COONS: Well, it is abundantly clear.
"And the biggest question I would have is, if it did pass, would the president sign it?. No Collusion, so they go insane!" according to the President.
"Special counsels must act within boundaries, but they must also be protected", Graham said in a statement. As usual, the president left the nation in suspense: "We'll see what happens". That wouldn't really be kosher. "Well, I turned out to do the right thing, because if you look back at all of the things that he's done and the lies, and you look at what's gone on at the FBI.it turned out I did the right thing".
You get the downward drift.
"The bottom line is I'm not anxious about Trump firing Mueller because I think he's smarter than that". The result would not be good for the American people, the Republican Party or the president. He said he might well veto it. In a Fox Business interview Tuesday, Grassley urged the president to support the special counsel's efforts.
