Later during the hearing, he said in response to a question from another senator, "If there were good cause [to fire Mueller] I would consider it". As Lindsey Graham says in the second clip below, Trump could become the first president to go down because he can't stop inappropriately trying to halt an investigation that he's not a subject of. According to the regulations, Rosenstein could only remove Mueller "for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies". Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the investigation and is testifying Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Christopher Ruddy, chief executive of conservative group Newsmax Media, Mr Ruddy was at the White House on Monday, but USA media reported that he did not meet Mr Trump while there.
"I think he is considering perhaps terminating the special counsel", Ruddy said.
He also said that he believed it would be "a very significant mistake" for Trump to fire Mueller, but emphasized that he was concerned about what he described as conflicts. They're appointed by the attorney general, and under normal circumstances, it's the attorney general who has the authority to fire them. I do believe it was considered as an option. Comey said that, after an encounter with President Donald Trump in which he said Trump pressured him to back off an investigation into the former national security adviser, Comey "implored" Sessions to make sure he was never left alone with the president again -but that Sessions didn't respond.
But after the testimony of former FBI Director James Comey last week, Gingrich said he'd changed his mind. He said that while they "could be lying to me", he didn't think so.
So, of course, they would ignore Ruddy's clarification that he doesn't think Trump would actually fire Mueller.
Both Fleischer and Gingrich had previously vouched for the character and integrity of Mueller, who was appointed Federal Bureau of Investigation director by Bush and whose term was extended an extra two years by Democratic President Barack Obama.
The CEO of conservative media outlet Newsmax said during an interview Monday that President Trump might fire the special counsel in charge of the investigation into his administration's ties with Russian Federation.
Conservative provocateur Ann Coulter jumped on board Sunday, writing that Comey's acknowledgement that he told Trump he wasn't personally under investigation was grounds for dismissing Mueller altogether.
If Trump does insist on firing Mueller, however, Schiff said he has a way around him.
Under current Justice Department regulations, firing Mueller would have to be done by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, not the president- though those regulations could theoretically be set aside.
He said he's confident that Mueller will have "the full independence he needs" to investigate.
Multiple House Republicans said that there was no discussion about the special counsel at the weekly GOP meeting.
'He apparently couldn't find a single pro-Trump attorney to hire and I just think that that's a rigged game. I spoke to the president late last week, and I think he was pretty optimistic about things and happy that things - I wouldn't say overly happy.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, however, did say he would be "surprised" if Trump fired Mueller. A Tuesday night New York Times report appears to confirm that Trump has, in fact, talked about canning Mueller, though his aides have managed to prevent him from doing so - at least for now.
