Mueller is in charge of investigating Russian interference in the USA election and possible collusion with Trump´s campaign.
"Time to rethink", he tweeted Monday, citing Mueller's hiring decisions and Comey's admission that he'd instructed a friend to share with reporters notes he'd taken of his private conversations with Trump in order to force the appointment of a special counsel.
"I don't think donations are disqualifying at all, but if you represented the Clinton Foundation or Mrs. Clinton herself, that would be a bit disturbing", Graham said. He added later: "As long as I'm in this position, he's not going to be fired without good cause", which he said he would have to put in writing. Still, Gingrich said any special counsel with an agenda can "all of the sudden find something procedural and technical to latch onto". The regulations that govern the special counsel were issued by the Department of Justice and could be rescinded by DOJ.
Sources have told CNN that multiple advisers have counseled Trump against firing Mueller. "Because Comey makes so clear that it's the poison fruit of a deliberate manipulation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation director leaking to The New York Times, deliberately set up this particular situation. "If there were good cause", I would consider it", Rosensteintestified. "I can't imagine that anyone in the White House is seriously discussing that".
Would there be a Russian investigation if Mueller is fired? If Sessions did recuse himself, it would fall to Rosenstein to fire the guy who he'd appointed weeks earlier.
"I know what we're investigating and (Sessions) does not", Rosenstein said, trying to clarify Sessions' role.
Of course the man leading that movement - USA president Donald Trump - continues to produce head-scratching responses to the scandal.
That includes the man who hired the special counsel and would have to do the firing.
Even so, Gingrich said, Trump won't seek to dismiss Mueller because he's confident the probe will conclude he's done nothing wrong.
