Trump reportedly wanted to fire Mueller last June, citing what he found were conflicts of interest, which was stymied when White House counsel Donald McGahn threatened to quit. "At a minimum, it would require the attorney general (or the deputy attorney general in the event of recusal) to inform the House and Senate Judiciary Committee chairmen and ranking members immediately if (the president) interferes with a special-counsel investigation".

Although his continual interference with the Justice Department has been excused by some as mere naïveté, Donald Trump understands, at some level, that he would do well to leave Robert Mueller alone. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on ABC's "This Week", adding that "Mr. Mueller is the flawless guy to get to the bottom of all this, and he will". Susan Collins, R-Maine, speaks during a TV news interview on Capitol Hill in Washington. He has continued to use his favorite communication platform, Twitter, to rail against Special Counsel Mueller and his investigative team on a regular basis, with some particularly bombastic claims at times.

Both Collins and Graham said they saw no sign that Trump is now trying to fire Mueller.

Speaking to ABC's This Week on Sunday, Starr responded to a question about whether a lie about attempting to fire Mueller would be grounds for impeachment, stating: "I think lying to the American people is a serious issue that has to be explored". A bill written by Graham and Sen.

Collins said likewise that firing Rosenstein would be a "terrible mistake" and would recall the "Saturday Night Massacre", where then-President Richard Nixon sought to remove the special prosecutor investigating him, prompting leaders of the Justice Department to resign rather than quash the probe. And I think we'll just continue this investigation to see where it goes.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said on CNN's "New Day" Monday that releasing the memo could "send a message of accountability" in the United States intelligence community.

But the White House also reportedly has had the deputy attorney general in its crosshairs as the Russian Federation investigation drags on, CNN reported Friday.

Trump was asked about the report in Davos, where he was participating in the World Economic Forum, and denied the report and called it "typical" of the paper to run the report. Interviewed on NBC, former Defense Secretary and CIA Director Robert M. Gates said he had "total confidence" in Mueller, a storied federal law enforcement veteran.
