Christie says Mueller is being 'responsible' in Russian Federation inquiry

The filing was made public by the White House on Friday in response to an Associated Press reporter’s request
Chris Coons, Delaware Democrat, introduced last week legislation to allow a three-judge panel to determine whether there is "good cause" to fire a special counsel amid speculation that the White House may try to jettison Mr. Mueller.
Though the communications team has yet to become organized, and the president continues to put himself in jeopardy with his ever-shifting explanations, Trump's legal team has become more disciplined.
Mueller was appointed in May to oversee the probe into Russia's attempts to interfere with the 2016 election, including whether the Trump campaign colluded with the country. Although Christie said there was typically pressure on special prosecutors to produce results, he wasn't too concerned about Mueller going too far while looking into President Trump's finances, as well as those around him.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller departs after a closed-door meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee about Russian meddling in the election. And it suggests they had enough evidence to convince a federal judge to OK the grand jury.
The Republican governor also said it was unclear what role Trump played in crafting Trump Jr.'s initial response to news reports about the meeting, which Trump Jr. first said was "primarily" about adoption and its relation to United States sanctions on Russian Federation under the Magnitsky Act.
It's yet another example of Congress putting its faith somewhere besides with Trump.
Fresh off the first weekend of a 17-day "working vacation" at his golf resort in Bedminister, New Jersey, President Trump announced Monday morning that he'll be traveling to NY next week to attend some meetings. First, he told the New York Times it was about adoptions. They didn't tell the truth. As Axios reported on Monday, the messaging seems to have shifted from furiously denying all wrongdoing to the "more sustainable position that the President did nothing wrong", as well as dialing back attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
As Schiff said in March: "Is it possible that all of these events and reports are completely unrelated and nothing more than an entirely unhappy coincidence?"
If this were a "witch hunt", as Trump claims, then it's "witch hunt" the entire political and judicial system is in on.
Now, just because an investigation is indeed very real doesn't mean we know its conclusion.
The Trump White House may have new discipline, thanks to Chief of Staff John Kelly.
