Paul Ryan: 'Let Robert Mueller Do His Job'

"I think he is weighing that option".

The Ninth Circuit, said to be the most liberal of the federal courts of appeal, predictably upheld an injunction on Monday on Trump's revised travel ban temporarily preventing citizens from six Muslim-majority nations - Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Sudan and Somalia - from entering the US. "I personally think it would be a very significant mistake". Such a move would create a firestorm coming weeks after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

But it is a line of thinking that is making its way to the president's ears.

But firing Mueller would be a political bomb in Washington.

Both Democrats and Republicans pushed back. Sessions would then turn to Rod Rosenstein and tell him to fire Mueller. "What's he done to be fired?" Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Sen.

House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Tuesday any talk about Trump wanting to rid himself of the special investigator amounts to "rumor". "And I'm not going to speculate on what he will or will not do", Sekulow said. "And once you get the independent prosecutor, they start rummaging all through everything they can look at". A White House official told BuzzFeed that Ruddy was "speaking for himself and did not speak to the president".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions attends a Cabinet meeting with President Donald Trump, Monday, June 12, 2017, in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington. Conservative Analyst Ann Coulter said that Attorney General Sessions "never should've recused himself" from the Russian Federation investigation.

Deputy Atty. Gen. Rod Rosenstein, the No. 2 official at Justice, also promised that the special counsel, former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, would have the independence to pursue the investigation as he saw fit.

He explained Tuesday to the Senate panel that his decision was based on a Justice Department regulation dictating that 'employees should not participate in investigations of a campaign if they served as a campaign advisor'.

Shaheen also asked whether there was a record that gives Mueller full independence.

"At this point have you seen any evidence of "good cause" for firing of special counsel Mueller?" That's what I would do. And so that's what I would do - if there were good cause, I would consider it. "If there were not good cause, it wouldn't matter to me what anybody says", Rosenstein added.

President Donald Trump is traveling to Wisconsin to discuss expanding access to apprenticeships - a jobs agenda item likely to be overshadowed by testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the president's apparent toying with the idea of dismissing the newly-appointed special counsel.

Mr Ruddy said Mr Mueller has some "conflicts" because his former law firm, Wilmer Hale, also representing Ms Ivanka Trump, the President's daughter, and her husband, Mr Jared Kushner. "Memo to Sean: focus your efforts on exposing the flim-flam Russian allegations against POTUS and highlighting his remarkable achievements! Don't waste our time".

Rosenstein testifies on Tuesday morning. That, to me, is the smartest thing to do, the best thing to do, and that's what I think hopefully will happen. "I think it's an accurate statement". "The basis of his investigation is flim-flam".

"Obviously they didn't think there was obstruction of justice after reading a memo and colluding with Comey".

They don't mind stirring the pot to distract, deliberately provoke and disrupt.

On "CBS This Morning" Gingrich carped that one of the Democratic attorneys Mueller has hired 'worked for the Clinton Foundation'.
