"The special counsel should be free to follow through with his investigation to its completion without interference".

House Speaker Paul Ryan warned the White House on Tuesday against firing special counsel Robert Mueller before he completes his investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation.

"This continued attack against Mueller, against the Department of Justice and against the Federal Bureau of Investigation is a pretext for Mr Trump eventually to fire Mr. Mueller, I believe".

MSNBC aired a humorous and likely unnecessary chart on Monday about the number of times President Donald Trump has tweeted about special counsel Robert Mueller by name.

"I agree with the president's lawyers that Bob Mueller should be allowed to finish his job". Notably, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has not publicly weighed in.

Graham, a House prosecutor in the impeachment trial of former President Clinton, was asked if firing Mueller would be an impeachable offense during an interview on Hugh Hewitt's radio program.

Mr. Ryan said the investigation should be allowed to continue out of respect to the rule of law - and said he's "confident" Mr. Mueller will be allowed to complete the probe.


Mueller has already secured several indictments in his ongoing investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 election and, per Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's order appointment the special counsel, related issues. Republicans have generally avoided direct criticism of the president.

"Just a week ago he said he wasn't firing Tillerson, too".

"If you had been attacked mercilessly and continuously day in, day out, every single second while you're trying to work hard to do good things for this country, and literally every day you wake up to an onslaught of people saying you're there because of reasons that are completely false, that's frustrating", she said.

Later Tuesday, Flake appeared to turn up the volume on his concerns.

Congressional leaders are putting the final touches on a $1.3 trillion spending bill that will pass Congress in the coming days.

Bipartisan bills protecting Mueller from being fired have been floating around Capitol Hill for months with no action.

One remaining battle pits President Donald Trump against top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer and other New York-area lawmakers over $900 million the legislators want for a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River. "[Mueller] is protected now".
