White House: Trump won't sack special counsel Robert Mueller

"If there were good cause", I would consider it", Rosenstein testified.
"I think that he should be more cognizant of making sure that the people who come to work with him are non-partisan, for his own credibility", Bennett said of Mueller.
Sam Nunberg, who worked for Trump's presidential campaign, said it "could seem to be a conflict" for Mueller to first interview with the president to be a possible replacement for Comey and then days later to be named as the special counsel heading an investigation that could look into Comey's firing. The special counsel, who reports to the attorney general, serves at the pleasure of the president. That's what was meant by Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein when he said Director Comey usurped the role of the Department of Justice prosecutors.
Now, Trump could order Rosenstein to fire Mueller.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, asked Rosenstein if he would fire Mueller if Trump asked him to.
A close associate of Trump told PBS NewsHour on June 13 that Trump was considering firing Mueller one month after he fired former FBI Director James Comey, who previously headed the Russian Federation investigation. The comments come amid increasing frustration at the White House and among Trump supporters that the investigation will overshadow the president's agenda for months to come - a prospect that has Democrats salivating. That, to me, is the smartest thing to do, the best thing to do, and that's what I think hopefully will happen.
"All three of them could be lying to me; I don't think so", he said.
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.
Democrats, reacting to the chatter, said that if Trump fired Mueller they'd try to enact an independent counsel statute so they could appoint him.
Then Ruddy spread out, like a banquet, what will be Trump's argument for sacking Mueller, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director under Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
The talk about dismissing Mr Mueller appeared to be coming from Trump allies, including some close to White House strategist Steve Bannon, who are increasingly frustrated with the prospect of a long and winding probe.
Democratic senators on the committee attempted to clarify the boundaries of Sessions' recusal, something they say is unclear.
Ms sanders also said says the president was pleased with attorney general Jeff Sessions' evidence to Congress on Tuesday.
The CEO is Newsmax Media called Mueller "illegitimate" as a special counsel because the investigation itself has no basis.
The suggestion was swiftly rebutted by Press Secretary Sean Spicer who insisted in a statement last night that Ruddy didn't speak for the president on the issue - though he pointedly declined to say Mueller was safe.
The White House, however, said Trump and Ruddy have never discussed the issue.
Apple now allows tipping for content creators but with 30% tax
Ads display a small blue icon signifying an advertisement, but otherwise, they're almost indistinguishable from search results. It's baffling that Apple approved apps like this in the first place - perhaps it's a side effect of faster app review times.
