Trump firing Mueller would be 'the beginning of the end of his presidency'

Graham: Trump firing Mueller would be 'the beginning of the end of his presidency'

(CNN)Sen. Lindsey Graham gave a stern warning Sunday to President Donald Trump against firing special counsel Robert Mueller.

"As I said before, if he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency," the South Carolina Republican said on CNN's "State of the Union."

"The only reason that Mr. Mueller could be dismissed is for cause. I see no cause when it comes to Mr. Mueller," Graham said, later adding he believed the Mueller was "doing a good job."

Graham called for Mueller to be able to carry out his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election "independent of any political influence."

"I pledge to the American people, as a Republican, to make sure that Mr. Mueller can continue to do his job without any interference," he said.
Graham's defense of Mueller comes in the wake of the President's latest attacks suggesting partisan bias on the special counsel.

"Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added ... does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!," Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump's criticism of Mueller, a Republican, also came a day after his personal lawyer, John Dowd, called for an end to the special counsel's probe.

On Saturday, CNN learned that Mueller had interviewed former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and asked about the firing of FBI Director James Comey. McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday night after being long derided by the President.

Graham said on "State of the Union" that the Senate Judiciary Committee should hold a hearing on McCabe's firing to "make sure it was not politically motivated."

"I think we owe it to the average American to have a hearing in the Judiciary Committee, for Mr. Sessions, Attorney General Sessions, comes forward with whatever documentation he has about the firing and give Mr. McCabe a chance to defend himself," Graham said."I believe when it comes to this issue, we need as much transparency as possible, to make sure that it was not politically motivated.

Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont issued a similar call to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Saturday.

Oh gee...CNN doesn't want Mueller fired. Shocking!!!

They also said "Trump is done" like 143,344,345,734,698 times before the election that he won as well.

Doesn't have to fire him. Just enact another special council to investigate Uranium One and Mueller becomes a witness to all things Russia.

This is Graham, a Republican...not CNN. And he is not alone. I hope Trump tries...because, it would indeed be the beginning of the end. Let's do this...

I realize that CNN declared that CNN is FAKE NEWS and you're just being a good parrot, but did you even notice that it's actually about Senator Graham?

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/18/polit...ntv/index.html


Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, a chief GOP critic of President Donald Trump, said Sunday he expects pushback from his colleagues over Trump's increased attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller.

"We can't in Congress accept that," Flake said on CNN's "State of the Union," adding, "I would expect to see considerable pushback in the next couple of days."

Trump over the weekend tweeted that the Mueller probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election never should have begun, and on Sunday morning, continued to rail against the ongoing investigation. Trump attorney John Dowd said in a statement on Saturday that he hopes Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed the special counsel, will end the investigation...

Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement on Sunday that Trump "is floating trial balloons about deraiing the Mueller investigation."

"Our Republican colleagues, particularly the leadership, have an obligation to our country to stand up now and make it clear that firing Mueller is a red line for our democracy that cannot be crossed," Schumer's statement read.

How about GOP fave Trey Gowdy on Fox News Sunday: "If the allegation is collusion with the Russians, and there is no evidence of that, and you are innocent of that, act like it," Gowdy said. He added later in the interview, "If you've done nothing wrong, you should want the investigation to be as fulsome and thorough as possible."

The good news is that Grassley and Graham are pushing for exactly that...

That is probably good advice. However, it's always easier to tell someone else to sit back and deal with it when you are not the one that has to actually sit back and deal with it. Right?

Trump firing Mueller would be 'the beginning of the end of his presidency'

Even Rand Paul is getting in on this, while kinda sorta staying away: Paul said he would not "advocate" for Trump to try to force Mueller out, just as he "would have never advocated for the appointment of a special prosecutor."
