WH: Trump Has 'No Intention' of Firing Mueller

In his first public appearance as a newly minted member of Trump's personal legal team, Sekulow declined to rule out the possibility of Trump firing Robert Mueller, who was appointed special counsel to investigate links between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, was appointed on May 17 and is tasked with investigating Russian interference in last year's presidential election and if associates of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials.

Rosenstein told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he's seen no reason why Mueller should be fired.

"If there were not good cause, it wouldn't matter to me what anybody says".

At the time, Sessions said he was recusing himself only because he was involved in the 2016 campaign as an adviser to the Trump campaign. "This is something that I think was a rumor that came out last night".

The North Carolina Republican senator gave the update Tuesday at the beginning of an open hearing to hear testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Indeed, Ruddy referred to comments from Jay Sekulow, one of Trump's lawyers, who didn't rule out that Trump might fire Mueller in an appearance Sunday on ABC's "This Week". "I know Bob Mueller and I have confidence in Bob Mueller". Graham also asked him if it would be a disqualifier to have worked for Hillary Clinton, who ran against President Donald Trump in the election and was a subject of a separate Justice Department investigation into her email practices.

The public testimony Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence committee should yield Sessions' most extensive comments to date on questions that have dogged his entire tenure as attorney general and that led him three months ago to step aside from the Russian Federation probe.
