Should Congress act to protect Robert Mueller?

Since May of past year, Mueller, who helmed the F.B.I. from 2001 to 2003, has led the Justice Department's inquiry into how the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

"The president can whomever he chooses. when I look at the Russian election, what I see is a lack of credibility".

Scalise's statement piggybacked on comments made by Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who called for a second special counsel on Fox News Saturday.

"The idea of an Obama attorney general, given their awful record with the Clinton investigation and essentially colluded with the Clintons to avoid learning things that would have knocked her out of the race, for Holder to saying anything shows a level of chutzpah that's remarkable", Gingrich said.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday that President Trump's attacks on Robert Mueller are a "bad strategy", and that Trump's Twitter comments on the special counsel are "drowning" more positive trends happening in the country. Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein because Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself after his involvement in Trump's campaign. But he separated those events from the Mueller investigation. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and John Cornyn of Texas wrote the Department of Justice asking for an investigation into the FBI's relationship with the compiler of the anti-Trump dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele. A dossier compiled by Steele that intimated compromising information about Trump and Russian Federation was used by the FBI as part of their Russian Federation investigation.

Both Democrats and Republicans have called on Trump to cease the attacks.

Did Donald Trump Jr. Have an Affair with Aubrey O'Day?
It seems that Aubrey O'Day may have dedicated not one but two songs to her alleged former lover, Donald Trump Jr . Additionally, O'Day sent out a cryptic tweet on November 8, 2016, when Donald Trump was elected president.

Fitton said the concerns of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., regarding the FBI's unwillingness to turn over to Congress more than 1 million missing documents are "well-founded".

That's because if Trump goes further than verbal assaults and tries to fire Mueller, he would usher in an epochal constitutional crisis.

The letter also went to the DOJ's Inspector General, which is investigating the FBI, though the Senators who sent the letter don't think the internal investigation is strong enough. Polling suggests that more people have a positive image of Mueller than have a negative one but that large numbers don't know enough about the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director to form an opinion.

Ryan would not say who gave him that information and he did not answer if legislation to protect Mueller was something he'd support.

US lawmakers neared agreement on Tuesday on a massive government spending bill that Congress hopes to pass by Friday, as congressional leaders worked to narrow their differences on thorny issues such as President Donald Trump's border wall. The meeting and its revelations also have unleashed a new level of Trump's public hostility toward Mueller, even while some of the President's advisers show a willingness to negotiate Trump's testimony...
