Trump considering 'terminating' Russian Federation probe leader

As Mueller begins to build his team to investigate allegations of collusion between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's political team to undermine the 2016 election, the president's conservative allies are digging in to discredit Mueller, who was appointed as special counsel by Trump's own Justice Department.

"I think he's weighing that option", Ruddy said Monday on PBS NewsHour.

Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy made the comments on the eve of testimony at the Senate Intelligence Committee by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions over the Trump-Russia probe.

Rosenstein said that because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation matter, Mueller could only be fired by Rosenstein himself.

Regarding Ruddy's comments, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said: "Mr". Allies of the president cast doubt on the idea that Trump would take such a step, and White House officials said Ruddy did not meet directly with the president while he was there.

Mueller is also now investigating whether President Trump obstructed the investigation at all. The president denies doing anything wrong and has called the investigations a "witch hunt".

High-profile supporters of President Donald Trump are turning on special counsel Robert Mueller, the man charged with investigating Russian interference in the US election and possible collusion with Trump's campaign. It's unclear whether the president could override those rules and order Rosenstein to fire Mueller.

After Comey's testimony, Trump said he had been vindicated because his former FBI director confirmed telling Trump on three occasions that he was not under investigation.

Democrats on Monday accused Republicans of beginning a campaign to smear Mueller's reputation as he engages in a broad investigation that could include whether Trump obstructed justice by first pressuring Comey to end parts of the inquiry, and then by firing him.

A member of Trump's legal team said on Wednesday that reports of the expanding investigation were "outrageous". ADVERTISEMENT "I think it's pretty straightforward", Mudd said Friday on CNN.

"Chris speaks for himself", a second senior administration official told the Daily Caller.

The team said that he couldn't go because he was receiving post-game treatment, although it said it wasn't anything serious. He attracted headlines last week after being accused by a Spanish prosecutor of defrauding the country's tax authorities.

Mr Rosenstein has also acknowledged that "theoretically" Mr Mueller could be removed from the position as special counsel, potentially undermining his investigation.

"There's some real conflicts", Ruddy said.

Three members of the legal team known to have been hired so far by Mueller have given political donations nearly exclusively to Democrats, according to a CNN analysis of Federal Election Commission records. "Don't waste our time".

Adam Schiff, who is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was quick to respond to the report.

He added that he believes it would be a mistake to fire Mueller, but said the "the basis of his investigation is flim-flam".
