Ryan: "Let Mueller do his job"

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:21

But the wave of criticism sparked other Republicans to warn that any concerted push against the special counsel could be politically disastrous for the White House. Ruddy agrees that the move would be a wrong move, but dismissed the investigation Mueller is overseeing. "Not uncharacteristic, but catastrophic". "I think he's weighing that option", Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy told PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff on Monday.

Ruddy also noted that Mueller's law firm has represented members of the Trump family, another apparent conflict.

"I think Congress should now intervene and they should abolish the independent counsel", the former House speaker said.

In an earlier hearing Tuesday before a Senate appropriations subcommittee, Rosenstein said Mueller will have the "full independence he needs to conduct that investigation", and that he has not spoken to Mueller about the substance of the investigation since appointing him.

"He is being advised by many people not to do it", the source said.

As to whether Trump could ever fire Mueller, that would be an issue the president would discuss with his advisers, Sekulow said.

"I think he's weighing that option", he added, saying there were concerns about conflicts of interest, including Mr Mueller's interview to replace Mr Comey at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and his law firm, which represents members of Trump family.

Dreeban's hire, along with that of Andrew Weissmann, who headed the Department of Justice's Enron Task Force, show that Mueller is taking the task at hand seriously, and is 'amassing the talent arsenal you'd build to bring criminal charges, ' Axios said.

The first shot was sacked by Jay Sekulow, a hard-right conservative activist and a member of Trump's legal team who told ABC's "This Week" that he would not rule out the firing of Mueller.


Mueller was appointed FBI Director by President George W. Bush in 2001 and served until 2013, when Comey took over as head. "It would be a political bombshell and it would be close to an admission of guilt".

Second, he said Congress could muck up Mueller's investigation.

Any such tactic "blurs the line between politics and law, and that is a risky thing", said Professor Michael Gerhardt, an expert in constitutional law at the University of North Carolina School of Law.

"Republicans are so stupid", she told The Hill via email.

The comment came in response to questions from Democratic Sen. He added, "I think the best vindication for the president is to let this investigation to go on independently and thoroughly". Although impeachment proceedings might hurt the Dems in 2020 - a much more significant election year than 2018 - a Democrat controlled House is not in Trump's interest.

There are other voices in the chorus of Mueller criticism.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is preparing for sharp questions from his former Senate colleagues about his role in the firing of James Comey and his Russian contacts during the campaign.

Lawyer Jay Sekulow, a member of Mr Trump's legal team, has also refused to rule out Mr Mueller's possible sacking.

Hours after the interview, White House spokesman Sean Spicer did not deny the claim, but said: "Mr Ruddy never spoke to the president regarding this issue. He likes to create chaos".
