Trump cheerleaders turn on special counsel Mueller
Trump cheerleaders turn on special counsel Mueller

On Trump's plane ride home after a trip to Wisconsin, Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters he "has no intention" of firing Mueller, even though she maintained that "the president has the right to".
"I think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel", Ruddy said in an interview with Judy Woodruff of "PBS NewsHour".
Former FBI director is too close to his successor, James Comey, to be impartial.
Just weeks ago, Gingrich had heaped praise on Mueller, hailing him as a "superb choice" for special counsel whose reputation was "impeccable for honesty and integrity". They are expected to work on setting formal terms of how the Hill and federal investigations will co-exist and share information - a major test on that front will be whether the FBI is willing to release Comey's memos of his conversations with Trump, now that they have been provided to Mueller.
The report goes on to state that while Trump is suspicious of Mueller and that he is still furious with Attorney General Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing the Russian Federation probe. So far, Trump has reportedly been dissuaded from doing so by several staff members and advisers, who are acutely conscious of the sheer violence of the scandal that would likely erupt were he to pull the trigger.
The talk about dismissing 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.
They say Trump did not collude with Russian Federation and see the investigation as a politically motivated sham that handicaps Trump's ability to execute his agenda, according to one person who advises the White House on how to handle the probe.
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.
"Look, the president of the United States, as we all know, is a unitary executive". Still, he added, "I can't imagine that that issue is going to arise". Trump has made no decision to act against Mueller and insists that he knows the risks of doing so but people close to the president say Trump is so volatile they can not be sure that he will not change his mind if he finds out anything to lead him to believe the investigation has been compromised, The New York Times said. During the Watergate investigation President Richard Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, who was investigating a campaign of political spying and sabotage launched by a Nixon re-election committee.
Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment on Ruddy's remarks.
