Asked About Firing Mueller Or Rosenstein, Trump Says 'They're Still Here'

Asked About Firing Mueller Or Rosenstein, Trump Says 'They're Still Here' Asked About Firing Mueller Or Rosenstein, Trump Says 'They're Still Here'

Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs asked Trump if he chose not to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein because it was "not worth the political fallout", or for some other reason.

Speaking at a joint press conference in Florida with the prime minister of Japan, Trump said months of speculation that he would dismiss the men had proven wrong.

There are protests planned (more information here), should Trump create a constitutional crisis and move to fire Mueller or thwart his investigation.

Trump's anger at the probe has intensified, with him musing publicly and privately in recent weeks about firing Mueller and Rosenstein.

"That's very sad, but many people died in that fight", he said about the attacks.

"I think it's a disgrace what's going on".

Instead of explaining why Trump shouldn't fire Mueller, Stewart immediately started listing reasons why Trump's frustration is justified. But Trump, in a Twitter post last week, denied a report that he tried to dismiss Mueller previous year.

The president Wednesday again denied broadly that there was any collusion between his campaign and the Russians, which is one of the questions that Mueller's team is investigating.

Trump pointed out the advantage that he believed his opponent Hillary Clinton had with the Electoral College.

"I have instructed our lawyers, be totally transparent", Trump said.

The president also expressed his hope that "we're coming to the end" of the investigation.

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.

As the news conference ended, Trump defended his administration's policy toward Russia and for the first time publicly mentioned a February incident in Syria in which American forces may have killed more than 200 Russian mercenaries who attacked USA -allied fighters.
