Prominent SC politicians warn Trump not to fire Mueller, or else

Patty Aguilar | 19 March, 2018, 13:15

Gowdy, a Republican stalwart who led investigations of the Benghazi attacks, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server, and the Department of Justice's "Fast and Furious" gun-running operation, stopped just short of calling Trump's lawyers amateurs, as the administration's public relations campaign against Mueller reaches a fever pitch.

Wallace asked whether Trump may begin to take more aggressive actions to stop Mueller's investigation, and Gowdy cautioned against it.

Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday that Mueller's team was made up of prosecutors who were "hardened Democrats".

"I think the president's attorney, frankly, does him a disservice when he says that and when he frames the investigation that way", Gowdy told "Fox News Sunday". Give Bob Mueller the time, the independence, and the resources to do - keep in mind, he didn't volunteer for this.

Gowdy said he still hopes Trump "does more", but even now he still thinks "he did a hell of a lot more" than Obama.

"I pledge to the American people as a Republican, to ensure that Mr. Mueller can continue to do his job without any interference". White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign after Trump reportedly ordered him to sack Mueller in June 2017.

"To suggest that Robert Mueller should shut down and that all he is looking at is collusion [is wrong]", said Gowdy.

Trey Gowdy appears on Fox News Sunday on March 18. "That is supremely important and it has nothing to do with collusion".

House Republicans also found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. "And if you are innocent, act like it. ..." He also charged 13 Russians and three Russian organizations with allegedly interfering in the 2016 election.

On Sunday night, the White House said Trump isn't thinking about or talking about firing Mueller.

On Fox News Sunday this morning, Congressman Trey Gowdy said that President Trump has been doing a better job responding to Russian Federation than former President Barack Obama did.

Gowdy appeared on "Fox News Sunday" and said Trump and his lawyers should act more like the president is innocent of the charge of colluding with the Russians in the 2016 election.
