Congress Makes Effort To Protect Mueller From Fired By Trump

Published on 31 Oct 2017, 11:52
Business Insider has reported that as news broke Monday morning that a grand jury indicted three individuals who were involved in President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, tension heightened among senators worried that Trump might retaliate and attempt to oust Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Sen. Kamala Harris, a California Democrat, said she has been worried about Trump firing Mueller since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appeared before her committee.
"And I feel strongly as I said many months ago that it is critical that [Department of Justice] give Bob Mueller full authority over that investigation without any concern about" being fired, she said.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, also released statements on Monday warning of congressional action if Trump were to fire Mueller.
Currently there are two bills sitting in limbo on Capitol Hill that would shield Mueller from termination by allowing a three-judge panel to decide if it was unwarranted.
