PresidentDonald Trump on Monday addressed the possibility of firing special counsel Robert Mueller, once again railing on the ongoing investigation into Russian collusion during the 2016 presidential election.
Schumer said: 'If Donald Trump is thinking of using the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid to fire Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise interfere with the chain of command in the Russian Federation probe, we Democrats have one simple message for him: don't.
Earlier than a White Home assembly with prime army advisers, Trump took a number of minutes to blast the raid and the Mueller probe. Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential campaign, whether anyone close to Trump engaged in collusion and whether Trump sought to obstruct justice.
The donation was reportedly solicited by Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, whose offices were raided by the FBI as part of a separate investigation on Monday.
Mueller, a lifelong Republican, and his team of attorneys have been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and associated misdeeds in the president's orbit since May 2017. "... So we'll see what happens ... this is a pure and simple witch hunt". Trump said Sessions "should have certainly let us know" he would step aside in the probe and we would have "put a different attorney general in".
Exactly so. And it's an affront to American law and American values, at least what were American values not so long ago, and which we can pray still have some force.

The president complained that his team has given "a million pages' worth of documents to the special counsel", and "they continue to just go forward". He called Mueller's investigation "an attack on our country", prompting new speculation that he might seek the removal of the Justice Department's special counsel.
It has been clear for some time to anyone other than Democrat partisans, that Mueller never had any intention of confining his investigation to the question of possible collusion by the Trump campaign, the matter he was essentially appointed to plumb. Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, negotiated details of the event with Douglas Schoen, a former consultant for Bill Clinton, according to The New York Times.
As for today's raid on Cohen's office, it is "a whole new level of unfairness". The regulations only allow Mueller's removal for "misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest or for other good cause" including violation of Justice Department policies.
They spent several hours in the room, and the raid resulted in an "unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients", Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, said. We'll see what happens, but I think it's really a sad situation ...
"Well, I think it's a disgrace what's going on", Trump said.
"And many people have said, 'You should fire him.'" Trump added. Cohen said the company signed a nonbinding letter of intent in October 2015 with Moscow-based I.C. Expert Investment Company.
There have been few indicators that Mueller was excited by investigating the fee, although.
