Dem senator: GOP should tell Trump obstructing Mueller probe is 'unacceptable'

  • Mitch McConnell Issues Strong Defense of Robert Mueller

The notes could play a role as Mueller's team investigates whether Trump obstructed justice in firing Comey a year ago, when Comey was in charge of the Russian Federation investigation as head of the FBI. Mueller is investigating potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign and possible obstruction of justice by the president. That report is expected to conclude McCabe was not forthcoming about matters related to the FBI investigation of Democrat Hillary Clinton's emails.

Now, the President has begun attacking Mueller himself.

But Hatch, on CNN, also said he didn't see any need for legislation to protect Mueller.

Although the decision to fire Mr McCabe was made by Mr Sessions, Mr Trump had criticised him for months.

Senator Lindsey Graham, another Republican, said if Trump were to dismiss Mueller, it would mark "the beginning of the end of his presidency".

Republican strategist Rick Tyler asserted on Monday that President Donald Trump will eventually find a way to fire special counsel Robert Mueller and Republicans in Congress will do "nothing" about it.

"I don't know what the designs are on Mueller, but it seems to be building toward that, and I just hope it doesn't go there". In 1998, both claimed that they were targeted by a private investigator hired by the Clinton White House due to their frequent television appearances during the Monica Lewinsky scandal-a charge the White House denied.

Trump was told to cut it out on Sunday by such notable Republicans as Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The onslaught of posts led lawmakers - Democrats and Republicans - to defend Mueller.

A Dowd statement Saturday called on the Justice Department official overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to "bring an end" to it. Dowd made the request after the firing of onetime FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. But when asked about the President's tweets this weekend, AshLee Strong said, "As the speaker has always said, Mr. Mueller and his team should be able to do their job".

He referred to former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, who Trump fired, as "America's most dirty cop" and said that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should appoint a new special counsel or impanel a grand jury to investigate Comey and other current and former Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ officials.

Special counsel investigators have told Trump's lawyers that their main questions about the president fall into two simple categories, the two people said: "What did he do?" and "What was he thinking when he did it?" Cobb sought to tamp down the speculation.

Trump crossed a new milestone over the weekend in attacking the investigation by calling out Mueller by name. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., walks on Capitol Hill after talking to reporters about President Donald Trump, Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017, in Washington.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake, who has criticized Trump harshly, said the president's latest comments appeared to be aimed at the firing of Mueller.

And so the president's strategy comes into shape.

McCabe was sacked ahead of the release of an inspector general's report that's expected to conclude he was not forthcoming about matters related to the FBI investigation of Clinton's emails. This is true: McCabe's wife, Jill McCabe, ran as a Democrat for the Virginia state Senate in 2015, and the political action committee of Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe gave her campaign $500,000 during her race.

He welcomed the news of his dismissal nearly immediately after Mr Sessions announced it, calling the move a "great day for democracy".

What could the memos say?

.

In a statement, McCabe claimed his dismissal was politically-motivated and that he had been targeted because "he can corroborate former [FBI] Director [James] Comey's accounts of his discussions with the President". "And yet, each week, we hear of another Department of Justice bureaucrat being reassigned or relieved of their duties after finding they were unable to carry out their duties in an unbiased and professional manner".

The White House said no such move is contemplated.
