Mitch McConnell Issues Strong Defense of Robert Mueller

Mitch McConnell Issues Strong Defense of Robert Mueller

Any articles of impeachment against the president would only begin in the House, where few Republicans have spoken out against Trump's behaviour.

Multiple GOP Senators have said that firing Mueller would be an impeachable offense.

Still, despite the strong words, McConnell nixed the idea of passing a bipartisan bill to protect Mueller's job, a provision Democrats have been pushing for.

Trump has fumed to confidants that the Mueller probe is "going to choke the life out of" his presidency if allowed to continue indefinitely, according to an outside adviser who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations with the president.

Trump, however, ratcheted up political pressure on the investigation after criticizing Mueller over the weekend for hiring investigators with Democratic connections. Trump wrote, echoing complaints he made in private last June to White House counsel Don McGahn in an order to fire Mueller. "Everything we have seen from these texts, and from all the facts developing, shows that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and senior DOJ officials conspired to violate the law, and deny Donald Trump his civil rights", he said. Trump himself, however, says he is "champing at the bit" to testify, no doubt because he's sure that as a "very stable genius" he could run circles around Mueller.

Since that time Trump has repeatedly attacked Mueller on Twitter and called into question his ability to be impartial. Donald Trump doesn't want a therapist, he doesn't want somebody to fix him.

"I think every member of Congress should regard this as a critical moment in their time in public service", Sen. He rants for an hour about Mueller and his temerity in thinking Mueller can tell him what he can and can't do, egged on by Sean Hannity, with whom he's in regular contact. "I can't see it being anything other than a corrupt objective". Are they are actually sitting him down on a couch and saying "Tell me about your childhood". "Fire Mueller. Shut the investigation down".

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Monday he believes the FBI is in "cover-up mode" while Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz examines how the agency and Justice Department handled the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton's abuse of classified information. Jeff Flake (shown), R-Ariz., warned Trump in a tweet, adding, "Mr".

He does, however, say the Mueller probe is biased - particularly after former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was sacked on Friday, just before his official retirement, for having shown a "lack of candor" as investigators were probing his role in 2016 election-related investigations.
