Republican amendment brings special counsel protection bill to temporary halt

SPECIAL COUNSEL Robert Mueller could ensnare President Trump in any misstatements

"I have agreed with the historically cooperative, disciplined approach that we have engaged in with Robert Mueller (Unlike the Clintons!)", Trump tweeted.

Most constitutional scholars argue that only the deputy U.S. attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, has the power to dismiss the special counsel. It was first reported that the search was executed to obtain documents relating to payments to Stormy Daniels, a porn star who alleges an affair with Trump in 2006.

These protests are set to commence in every state in the nation, the website proclaimed, and will involve more than 300,000 participants who have promised to take to the streets if Mueller is unnecessarily removed from his post.

Acutely conscious of the threat Mr. Mueller's investigation poses, Mr. Trump has openly discussed ways to shut it down.

Graham went on Fox News Thursday and unabashedly pleaded with the president not to fire Mueller.

Trump was disputing a New York Times report published Tuesday that said the President sought to fire Mueller in December following reports that Mueller was seeking Trump's financial records.

Meanwhile, the CBI has spoken to the rape victim and some of the witnesses and family members besides visiting the crime scene. Another CBI team visited the hotel in Unnao where the victim is housed under police protection to take her statement.

Hours after the raid, Trump raged: 'They raid an office of a personal attorney early in the morning and I think it's a disgrace'.

Pecker and Cohen are longtime friends who strategized throughout the campaign about how to assist Trump's bid and counter salacious rumors that might surface about him, according to two people with knowledge of their relationship. "The less the president said on this whole thing, the better off he would be, the stronger his presidency would be".

"Sure, I would like to", he said.

Trump called it "an attack on our country and what we all stand for".

Sixty-four percent say they want the special counsel looking into Trump's business activities.

The president criticized the raid as out of bounds in Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump aides.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday that the President "certainly believes he has the power" to fire him.

The raid also has re-focused Trump's ire on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller's investigation.

According to Brian, Trump attempting to get rid of Mueller could cause a similar exodus, as she believes even Republicans would likely consider such a move to be a "red line".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) slammed President Trump's remarks, adding that legislation might be needed to protect Mueller from being fired. Sen.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley has declared that it would be "suicide" for Trump to order Muller to be fired, but has also questioned the need for - and constitutionality - of measures to protect Mueller.

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, asked if legislation is necessary to prevent Mueller from being dismissed, said "no, because I don't think the president's going to do it - and do you think the president would sign that legislation?"
