Schiff says firing Mueller would echo Watergate

Pammachio Corsino | 14 Giugno, 2017, 03:28

From left, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, listen as Vice President Mike Pence, right, speaks during a Cabinet meeting with President Donald Trump, Monday, June 12, 2017, in the Cabinet Ro. A special counsel is much harder to fire.

Chris Ruddy to @JudyWoodruff: President Trump is considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller, who he considered for another position. "He did not hire a single Republican in the first wave".

But Ryan said: "Well, I'm not going to get into hypotheticals".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says that a history of political giving is not a disqualifier for those who work for the Department of Justice's special counsel investigating Russian interference in US elections. Gingrich said he is troubled by Democratic donations of Mueller's picks to help lead the probe.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein assured Congress Tuesday that he would obey a presidential order to fire Mueller only if it were "lawful and appropriate". "No, senator, it is not a disqualification", Rosenstein said. And if there were good cause, I would consider it.

"It doesn't matter who the order comes from, good cause would be based on the reasons for the proposed removal", he said. "It is certainly theoretically possible that the attorney general could fire him, but that's the only person who has authority to fire him. I never said I had a conversation", Ruddy said on CNN.

It's hard to say whether firing Mueller would lead to the impeachment that Ruddy fears; Trump, after all, fired James B. Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director and has (thus far) lived to tell the tale.

Still, top Democrats on the Senate Appropriations subcommittee fumed that Sessions had abruptly canceled his appearance there, with Sen.

COLLINS: And second, if President Trump ordered you to fire the special counsel, what would you do? She asked whether he has seen "any evidence of good cause" to fire Mueller.


SHAHEEN: As I understand, Mr. Rosenstein, in this matter you are actually the one exercising hiring and firing authority, because Attorney General Sessions is recused. Cox was eventually fired by Solicitor General Robert Bork. That would have to be done by the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, given that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from DOJ's Russian Federation investigation.

Since the Justice Department's ethics office has already decided that Mueller doesn't have a conflict resulting from his law firm's representation of Trump family members, that argument looks soft. That, to me, is the smartest thing to do, the best thing to do, and that's what I think hopefully will happen. Ryan said during an interview on the Hugh Hewitt radio show.

The GOP leaders said they have not voiced their position to the president on whether the Mueller should continue his work nor have they weighed whether they would re-establish the independent counsel if he is terminated. Sens. Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont have sought an FBI investigation.

During the hearing, ostensibly about the Justice Department's budget priorities, senators from both sides of the aisle repeatedly peppered Rosenstein with questions about whether he would agree to Mueller's firing under the current circumstances. At the last hearing I attended, I explained that it would require a long time to explain exactly why.

At the time, Sessions said he was recusing himself only because he was involved in the 2016 campaign as an adviser to the Trump campaign.

"Chris Ruddy speaks for himself", Spicer said.

Ruddy did not dismiss the White House communications team's words, but he did call Spicer's statement "bizarre".

President Donald Trump could be weighing the termination of special counsel Robert Mueller from his oversight of the federal Russian Federation investigation, Christopher Ruddy, CEO of the conservative Newsmax Media and a friend of President Trump, told PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff on Monday. But the narrative has gotten oxygen from Ruddy and former Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has urged Trump to end the investigation. " he continued. "I think the president himself gave his own communications department a C-plus".
