Trump on firing Mueller or Rosenstein: 'They're still here'

Florida Gov. Rick Scott holds a Senate campaign rally at the Interstate Beverage Corp. in Hialeah Fla. on April 10

USA president Donald Trump has termed as "hoax created by the Democrats" the allegations of Russian connections by Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump is so infuriated by the FBI's seizure of records from his personal attorney that he has decided he won't sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller and instead is searching for a larger arsenal of attorneys.

During his congressional testimony a year ago, Comey said he wrote the memos because he felt the president inappropriately asked him to pledge his loyalty to him while he was spearheading the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump said that in contrast, "nobody has been more transparent" than his White House, pointing to thousands of pages of documents turned over to investigators.

The Republican lawmakers' warnings represented the latest push back against Trump's Twitter tirades, which the president resumed Sunday morning by attacking former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. "First of all, I don't think he should be fired".

On Wednesday, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-New York, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement that Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, told him that he plans to issue a subpoena to force DOJ to turn over the memos.

"I don't think he's going to fire Mueller".

"It's a big-tent party", Ryan said, "and we represent different corners of the tent".

The president said he is still cooperating with the special counsel's probe, even though he believes it is "a hoax created largely by the Democrats as a way of softening the blow of a loss [in 2016]".
