President Trump not firing special counselor Robert Mueller, White House says

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says there's no cause to fire MuellerMore

Comey himself had a riveting appearance before the same Senate panel last week, with some key moments centered on Sessions.

Congressman Adam Schiff, the most senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Congress would not sit still if Mr Trump fired Mr Mueller and tried to appoint his own replacement.

"I think he's weighing that option", he said referring to Trump. Investigators are also seeking to learn whether any Trump campaign associates colluded with Russian officials in the meddling.

The Justice Department declined CBS News' request for comment. The interview was first reported by PBS.

A person close to Trump's legal team said earlier Tuesday that there have been no discussions about firing Mueller with the legal team. Sens. Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont have sought an FBI investigation.

I did not talk to the President about the issue. That was not so, he said. Sessions recused himself from investigations related to the Trump campaign in February, a move that also provoked Trump's ire. Senate Democrats have raised questions about whether the men met at an April 2016 foreign policy event at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington. "This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don't appreciate it".

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".

"I think the best advice is to let Robert Mueller do his job", Ryan told reporters Tuesday after a closed-door meeting with House Republicans.

The Chicago Tribune Women's Issues, he said in an interview, "feels like the inescapable cynical prank of thought". In fact, Jones said on at least two occasions in 2014 that the December 12, 2012, massacre was a hoax .

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein delivers remarks during an event marking National Missing Children's Day at the Justice Department May 24, 2017 in Washington, DC.

In March, after Trump on Twitter accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower, Ruddy offered a glimpse of Trump's state of mind in a Newsmax column.

Ruddy appeared to be basing his remarks, at least in part, on comments from Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump's legal team, who told ABC in an interview Sunday that he was "not going to speculate" on whether Trump might at some point order Rosenstein to fire Mueller. Trump's wife, Melania, has adopted a more temperate tone, telling her husband that she believed the appointment of Mueller would speed resolution of the Russian Federation scandal and expressing her view that he would be exonerated, according to two people with direct knowledge of her advice.

"Senator, I'm not going to follow any orders unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders", Rosenstein said.

"He had a private conversation with the President on his views about all sorts of matters potentially about the investigation", Ruddy said.

The effort to muddy the waters surrounding the investigation is coming amid growing White House concern that the probe could detract from the president's agenda for months or years to come. Still, he added, "I can't imagine that that issue is going to arise". Democratic senator Joe Manchin asked Mr Comey during the hearing. His preface struck the right note of astonishment that we're even discussing this topic: "This seems like such a bad idea - for the nation, and for the President - that I have a hard time believing it is a live possibility".

Sessions maintained that he had not been briefed on the Russian Federation investigation between the time of his February swearing-in and his March 2 recusal.

'James Comey said he reviewed the testimony with the special counsel and you wonder if, it's unusual to me - and I've done a lot of cases for 40 years of practicing law nearly, and at the highest levels of the Supreme Court - that you have a situation, I think this is unprecedented, where the testimony was reviewed, ' he said. I don't even read that carefully. "I haven't seen him this pissed off in a long time", Ruddy wrote on March 5.
