Trump now less likely to sit for Mueller interview

Trump: 'I Have Full Confidence In Ty Cobb,' 'My Special Counsel'

The raids had the president fuming on Monday and Tuesday.

"Trump can order Rosenstein to fire Mueller", Kent said. But officials said the most probably target, if the president acts, would be Rosenstein.

Prior to the Cohen raid, Mueller's team had wanted to finalize a report on whether the president obstructed justice in the Russian Federation investigation in the next few months, with three sources telling NBC News that report could have come as early as May or as late of June.

The change in tone came as President Trump reacted negatively to an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of his private lawyer's offices Monday.

"Anyone advising the President - in public or over the airwaves - to fire Bob Mueller does not have the President or the nation's best interest at heart", Sen.

Trump is said to be near a "meltdown" in his fury at what he describes as "an attack on our country" - by which he means the ongoing criminal investigation of him.

"I think it's a disgrace what's going on", Trump told reporters at the White House. Chuck Grassley, R-IA, said "it would be suicide for the president to fire him". "Did they find his recordings?" I think he knows that", Kennedy said on CNN's "New Day", adding that "the president can't just fire Mr. Mueller.

Rosenstein has overseen the investigation since Sessions' recusal and has been frequently criticized by Trump.

Members of the Thamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) were detained as they tried to enter the airport and climbed on hoardings. Urging the government to act fast, Hassan requested the government to take cognisance of the protests held in the state.

Despite the president's obvious frustrations, he has claimed repeatedly that reports he is trying to oust Mueller are all fake news. Trump's ethos, ever since he was first sued by the Justice Department for racial discrimination in 1973, has been about cutting corners.

The president denied a New York Times report on Tuesday that he had sought to fire Mueller in December.

The president also reportedly considered firing Rosenstein last summer around the same time that he considered firing Mueller.

And GOP leaders said there was still no need for Congress to pass legislation to protect Mueller. Some outlets report that Trump is considering firing deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller as special counsel previous year. His frustration increased this week after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Michael Cohen's home, hotel and office.

According to U.S. media, documents seized in the raid included those regarding a $130,000 payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels less than two weeks before the 2016 presidential elections.

They also noted, though, the "privilege accorded to attorney-client communications does not apply if the conversation was conducted to further commission of a crime or fraud".

Across the Atlantic, one of Trump's former campaign aides was espousing the same view during a Wall Street Journal panel in London.
