Historic Speech By Top Democrat: As right wing media reaches frenzy stage, Sen. Warner warns Trump not to fire
18 January, 2018, 14:26
The news comes as the Senate intelligence committee is requesting documents from Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein as part of its probe.
Special counsel Robert Mueller's appointment was controversial because the administration did not want a special counsel investigating the actions, finances, and continued denials of collusion.
While Warner, the top Democrat on the panel, has remained mum on the matter, he did make note of Stein's presence at the "infamous dinner" with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Congressional Republicans have also called for protections for Mueller, although legislation the Senate GOP offered this summer to protect the special counsel still had not passed by the end of the year.
"In the United States of America, no one is above the law, not even the president". Senior Republicans had already been criticizing the investigation over perceived bias among investigators. At the time, Warner praised the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's appointment. Warner's talk about Mueller's possible firing being a "red line" made it clear that Democrats meant to make the president pay a high price for removing a potent legal threat to his continued tenure in office. But after several months of grousing about Mueller, the signals from the White House have made it clear the administration knows that it is in Trump's best interest to cooperate with him and to just wait for the investigation to finish rather than provide the Left with another pretext for talk about impeachment. President Trump declared this week that he does not now intend to fire him - a concession, perhaps, to the overwhelming public opposition to such a move.
In a floor speech Wednesday, Senate Intelligence Committee vice chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., accused House Republicans calling for Mueller's ouster of participating in a "seemingly coordinated" campaign to promote "baseless accusations" against Mueller's character and professionalism.
Echoing a complaint by lawyers for his transition team that Mueller had "unlawfully" obtained tens of thousands of its emails from the General Services Administration, the president last weekend said: "It's not looking good".
Returning from Camp David on Sunday, Trump told reportershe was not happy with the way the investigation is being handled - and that transition emails were improperly turned over to Mueller's investigators.
"For the one-thousandth time, we have no intentions of firing Bob Mueller", Sanders said.
