Trump's Staff Has Reportedly Talked Him Out of Firing Mueller

Ruddy also said Monday evening that Trump interviewed Mueller for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director position the day before he was named as special counsel.

But people close to Mr. Trump say he is so volatile they can not be sure that he will not change his mind about Mr. Mueller if he finds out anything to lead him to believe the investigation has been compromised.

Mueller is also looking into possible financial crimes among Trump's administration and campaign apparatus, the paper said.

Earlier this week, Newsmax CEO and close Trump ally Chris Ruddy set the news cycle on fire when he claimed that President Donald Trump was thinking about terminating special counsel Robert Mueller.

Senator Angus King, an independent, questioned Sessions' legal basis for refusing to answerquestions after Sessions said Trump had not invoked executive privilege regarding the conversations.

If DT fires Robert Mueller, we officially pass Watergate & Trump becomes most corrupt POTUS of greatest scandal in United States history.

Trump reportedly became aware of the longtime relationship between Mueller and Comey after being alerted to reports on Breitbart News and other conservative media outlets.

"But what he did see and what he heard - he thought that Attorney General Sessions did a very good job, and, in particular, was very strong on the point that there was no collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign".

Ruddy also said the president would be within his right to dismiss the special counsel because of the two's history.

Anxiety about the probe - and fresh concerns about the political leanings of some of the attorneys involved - is percolating in the West Wing of the White House. "I think he's- he's weighing that option". All of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) pushed the rumor despite the fact that their source admits he never spoke with the President and thinks he wouldn't do it.

WHAT IS President Donald Trump so afraid of when it comes to the ongoing Russian Federation probe?

The White House said that Ruddy speaks only for himself and not the president.

Trump had received private assurances from former FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation. She then added that in a separate testimony Tuesday, Rosenstein told a Senate panel he wouldn't allow it.

Despite that, Trump is stewing over the Mueller-led investigation in the same way he did with Comey.

Asked what he would do if the president ordered him to fire Mueller, Rosenstein said, "I'm not going to follow any orders unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders".

But with a president as erratic as Trump, intention is a handily fluid concept. The reason he gave is that it could be "within the scope of Director Mueller's investigation" and that "we don't want people talking publicly about open investigations", he said.

WELKER: Is it because of something you heard from top officials at the White House? He also interviewed Mueller for the role of Federal Bureau of Investigation director before he was appointed special counsel. I'll say very positive things when they're warranted.
