When Comey leaked memos of his conversations with the president, saying Trump had asked for his "loyalty", and hoping that he would ease off on the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed by the Justice Department as a special counsel to investigate Russia's involvement in the election and the possibility of the Trump campaign's ties to that interference. The first is that because Comey confirmed last Thursday that Trump wasn't personally under investigation during the early weeks of his presidency - before Comey's firing - there's no good reason for Mueller's investigation to continue.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters aboard Air Force One that "while the president has the right to" fire Robert Mueller, "he has no intention to do so".

The California Democrat said if the president opts to terminate Mueller from his position lawmakers will reappoint Mueller to the position.

Collins' question wasn't the only time the Mueller investigation came up during Rosenstein's hearing on Capitol Hill. After responding that he had not, Rosenstein reassured Shaheen of his confidence in the process.

China welcomes Rodman's visit to N. Korea
But State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters Rodman had nothing to do with Warmbier's release . How harsh is prison in North Korea? He identified the church as Friendship United Methodist Church.

In his interview, Ruddy said Trump had interviewed Mueller for the position of Federal Bureau of Investigation director several days before Rosenstein appointed him special counsel.

The responsibility for appointing (or theoretically firing) Mueller lies with Rosenstein because his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, recused himself in March from all investigations involving Russian Federation and the 2016 elections.

Coulter's case overlooks the fact that investigations into the Trump campaign for possible collusion with Russian Federation already involve some of Trump's closest confidantes and advisers. Doubt, however, has been cast on that explanation because of cryptic testimony from former FBI Director James Comey last week. Comey said he and other Federal Bureau of Investigation officials expected Sessions to recuse himself before it was publicly announced but would not discuss why they came to that conclusion. That plan is unlikely to impress a majority of the Senate, which would have to confirm a replacement for Sessions.
