Trump says he has no plans to fire Mueller

President Donald Trump denied reports August 10 that he is planning to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading an investigation into Russia's alleged interference into the 2016 election.

Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chair, is quickly becoming a key figure in the Russian Federation investigation. "You say, 'Oh, I'm going to dismiss him.' No, I'm not dismissing anybody".

The congressman's goal is to use the judiciary committees to "bring Mr. Mueller and his team out of the shadows" and make him answer for the "potential expenses incurred by Mr. Mueller, the scope of his investigation and the selection of his special council team".

"Mr. Mueller has asked the White House about specific meetings, who attended them and whether there are any notes, transcripts or documents about them", the newspaper reported, citing two of the people.

Even as special counsel Robert Mueller plays patty-cake with Comey, hires one Hillary crony after another for his team and expands his investigation into whether or not Donald Trump legally bought a pack of Skittles at a 7-Eleven when he was 12, one (so-far) lone congressman thinks maybe there should be some congressional oversight.

It is not clear whether Mr. Priebus ever relayed that message to the president.

Trump's allies are particularly anxious about Mueller seeking to interview Reince Priebus, the recently deposed White House chief of staff. He has also frequently said he hoped the investigation would be completed quickly.

Trump would not be able to directly remove Mueller, who can only be fired by the attorney general. I haven't spoken to him in a long time, but I know him.

Trump was asked about the raid on Manafort's house August 10.

With grand juries being impaneled and the Russian Federation investigation churning forward, the American people are watching Trump's actions closely.

According to a source familiar with the investigation, Manafort was awoken by a group of armed FBI agents knocking on his bedroom door as they executed the warrant on July 26.

John Dowd, Trump's attorney, underscored Trump's support for Mueller in a comment August 8. The president said he was surprised to learn about the search, saying it was something federal authorities "very seldom" do.

Manafort's new firm, Miller and Chevalier, specializes in financial crimes.
