Sen. Graham Pushes Bill To Prevent Trump From Firing Mueller

Trump on Sessions' fate Time will tell

The Trump administration has sought to discredit Mr Mueller over his friendship with former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey, who had been heading the inquiry until he was sacked by Mr Trump in May.

There might also be "holy hell" for firing Mueller. Under the statute, an independent counsel could only be removed via impeachment by congress or by termination by the attorney general "only for good cause", and the termination of a special counsel would have been subject to judicial review. The South Carolina Republican has been known to occasionally wander from the Senate flock.

In a hallway interview at the Capitol on Tuesday, Biggs told Morning Consult he agreed with Trump that Republicans should be doing more to protect the president. Despite the administration's objections that this infringes on executive foreign policy prerogatives, hardly any members of Congress have voted against the legislation.

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) fired a warning shot against firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller Thursday, saying that a move in that direction could signal the "beginning of the end" of the Trump presidency. Nearly half (48 percent) of voters surveyed over the weekend said it would be inappropriate for Trump to remove Mueller, who served under former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, while 22 percent said it would be appropriate.

Trump tweets that Gen. John Kelly is new chief of staff
On Twitter, Trump declared: "I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country. In a typical White House, most staffers, including the communications director, report to the chief of staff.

Like a person trapped in quicksand, the more the president struggles, the deeper he sinks.

Trump has previously stated that if Mueller investigated his family's finances, it would cross a "red line."

The impending announcement from the Justice Department on leaks, first reported by The Washington Post, deepen the intrigue surrounding a possible detente between Trump and Sessions.

Graham also warned Trump not to oust Sessions, who has drawn Trump's open condemnation for recusing himself from the ongoing Russian Federation probe.

They now have a $51.00 price target on the financial services provider's stock, up from their previous price target of $48.00. Quadrature Capital Ltd increased its position in shares of The Charles Schwab Corporation by 339.8% in the fourth quarter.

Trump also has alleged that Sessions has taken a "VERY weak" position on investigating former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and leaks from the intelligence community. The current episode dates back four months, to when Mr. Sessions recused himself from the FBI's inquiry into whether Moscow had interfered in the election.

"The attorney general is not - and can not be - the president's 'hockey goalie'". "They should wonder if the president is trying to pry open the office of attorney general to appoint someone during the August recess who will fire special counsel Mueller and shut down the Russian Federation investigation", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a Senate floor speech this week. Trump said he wants the attorney general to be "much tougher".

"Mr. President, for the sake of the country, and for your own legacy, please listen to the growing chorus of voices who want you to succeed - by being faithful to the oath of office you took on January 20 and by upholding the traditions of a nation of laws, not of men", Starr wrote.
