President Trump Says He’s Not Planning To Fire Robert Mueller
Written by broebling on December 18, 2017
President Trump said Sunday he is not considering firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the wake of calls from some Republican allies to shut down the Mueller probe into Russian involvement in the 2016 over allegations of bias by FBI officials. “No, I’m not,” the President told reporters upon his arrival back at the White House from Camp David. Mr. Trump’s attorneys are embroiled in a fresh spat with Mueller, the former FBI director, over his team’s reported acquisition of thousands of emails from Trump’s transition team. Trump’s legal team wrote in a letter Friday that the emails had been obtained inappropriately from a federal agency and called for Mueller to return the documents. A spokesman for Mueller said all documents related to the investigation had been obtained through normal means.
