White House: Trump won't sack special counsel Robert Mueller
17 June 2017, 07:32 | Guillermo Sutton
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says there's no cause to fire MuellerMore
Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller in mid-May as special counsel overseeing the the investigation into whether the President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 election, noted that under the special counsel regulations, only the attorney general has the authority to fire such an appointee.
The statement came after Sen. During the House hearing, New York Representative Nita Lowey asked Rosenstein if he had discussed former FBI Director James Comey's termination with the White House, and if anyone directed him to write his recommendation of Comey's dismissal. "I am confident he will have sufficient independence".
"At this point have you seen any evidence of "good cause" for firing of special counsel Mueller?" That's what I would do. If there were good cause, I would consider it.
Collins' question was prompted by recent media reports that Mueller's role leading the DOJ Russia investigation could be in jeopardy.
CNN cited a source close to Trump as saying the president was "being advised by many people" to not fire Mueller, who led the Federal Bureau of Investigation between 2001 and 2013.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich led one line of attack with a tweet that said "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair". "I think he's weighing that option".

"Time to rethink", he tweeted Monday, citing Mueller's hiring decisions and Comey's admission that he'd instructed a friend to share with reporters notes he'd taken of his private conversations with Trump in order to force the appointment of special counsel.
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". After responding that he had not, Rosenstein reassured Shaheen of his confidence in the process.
Ryan said the smartest thing for the president to do would be to let the investigation continue and be vindicated.
Republicans in Congress are also shaking off the notion that Trump could fire Mueller.
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. Sessions told senators on Tuesday that he'd recused himself because he was part of Trump's campaign.
But Ruddy opened a new line of questions about Mueller's impartiality - the fact that Trump had considered Mueller for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's job before he was named special counsel. 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.
