Trump supporters turn on special counsel Mueller

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller attends the ceremonial swearing-in of his successor James Comey at the FBI headquarters in 2013

He said Trump could even order the special-counsel regulations repealed and fire Mueller himself.

Comey had asserted both claims, when testifying under oath Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Russian interference in the 2016 political election and possible Trump team collusion. Still, he said: "Bob Mueller did a great job as Federal Bureau of Investigation director".

Just weeks ago, Mr Gingrich heaped praise on Mr Mueller, hailing him as a "superb choice" for special counsel whose reputation was "impeccable for honesty and integrity". If Rosenstein refused, Trump could fire him and continue down the line until a DOJ official acquiesced.

On Trump's plane ride home after a trip to Wisconsin, Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters he "has no intention" of firing Mueller, even though she maintained that "the president has the right to".

"I did not talk to the president about the issue", Ruddy said.

Sessions maintained that he had not been briefed on the Russian Federation investigation between the time of his February swearing-in and his March 2 recusal.

"I'm not going to follow any orders unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders", Rosenstein said.

At the time, Sessions said he was recusing himself only because he was involved in the 2016 campaign as an adviser to the Trump campaign.

Investigations are now under way into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters later that Trump thought Sessions "did a very good job" and was especially "strong" on denying any collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation. Mr Gingrich said he is troubled by Democratic donations of Mr Mueller's picks to help lead the probe. Ruddy said this shortly after visiting the White House, it should be noted, which suggests that it didn't come out of nowhere.

Meanwhile, Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy told PBS on June 12 that Trump is considering firing Mueller. Online news mogul Chris Ruddy said: "I think he's weighing that option..." That, to me, is the smartest thing to do, the best thing to do, and that's what I think hopefully will happen.

Gingrich tweeted, "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair". Robert Mueller isn't a contestant on The Apprentice.

Special counsels, which were created through a 1999 act of Congress, don't answer directly to the president.

"If President fired Bob Mueller, Congress would immediately re-establish independent counsel and appoint Bob Mueller", the California lawmaker tweeted. Though Ruddy was at the White House earlier in the day, those aides said he did not meet with Trump, but White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, a former conservative media leader himself. Other Trump allies oppose the investigation through a thread of interlinked objections: that Meuller's probe is unnecessary, that he is hiring an assemblage of biased attorneys who have donated to the Democrats in the past, and that his close relationship with Comey is compromising. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.

"Look, the president of the United States, as we all know, is a unitary executive", Jay Sekulow said on ABC's "This Week." Brian Schatz about the scope of Sessions' recusal, Rosenstein said Sessions "actually does not know what we're investigating, and I'm not going to be talking about it publicly". "I think it's pretty clear by what one of his lawyers said on television recently".
