White House torn over Mueller's role as pressure grows

Acilia Dean | 16 Giugno, 2017, 03:17

"I think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel", Ruddy said in an interview with Judy Woodruff of "PBS NewsHour".

"I think we should let Bob Mueller do his work and get to the bottom of it, and get to the bottom of it quickly so that he can be vindicated", Ryan said.

Ruddy was at the White House Monday to meet with White House aides, but did not speak with the president, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said. "Mr".

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said.

Donald Trump is a subject of the special counsel investigation into whether the president's campaign colluded with the Kremlin to interfere with the 2016 election.

The authority to appoint a special counsel fell to Rosenstein, after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia case because of his failure to disclose during his January confirmation hearing pre-election meetings he had Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Ruddy told CNN on Tuesday that Mueller and Trump "had a private conversation" and suggested it was "unethical" before the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director was named special counsel.

"How dare you smear a man who served this country honorably for decades in both war and peace, winning the Bronze Star and Purple Heart", Scarborough wrote. But in recent days, as the investigations by the F.B.I. and three congressional committees have accelerated and expanded, conservatives have closed ranks-and begun questioning Mueller's motives.


Why would Trump consider firing Mueller? Ruddy later confirmed the comment to CNN.

The overwhelming majority of Ruddy's contributions have been to Republicans, but he also contributed to Joe Lieberman's independent bid for Senate in 2006 and he gave $500 apiece to the 2012 Democratic campaigns of Dave Aronberg for Palm Beach County state attorney and Maria Sachs for state Senate. Still, Gingrich said any special counsel with an agenda can "all of the sudden find something procedural and technical to latch onto". Anyone who engages in these baseless attacks about Mr. Mueller's character is only heaping dishonor upon themselves.

The leaders of the Senate intelligence committee say In a statement issued Wednesday that they "look forward to future engagements" with Robert Mueller.

Ruddy's comments came after another highly visible Trump confidant, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, seemed to encourage Trump to make the move, tweeting that "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair".

The White House has denied any collusion, and President Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win. "Time to rethink", he tweeted.

Would there be a Russian investigation if Mueller is fired? "Don't waste time trying to undermine one of your few allies". I think it's pretty clear by what one of his lawyers said on television recently.

This is a doubling-down of an RNC strategy to defend Trump at all costs, even calling for an end to the Congressional investigations on the White House's behalf. "They need to be independent".
