But that’s not what we’re seeing. We’ve learned that in June the president ordered the firing of special counsel, Robert Mueller. The only reason why special counsel Robert Mueller is still in charge of the investigation is because President Trump’s own White House counsel threatened to quit if the president followed through with his order.
We need to protect the special counsel from being unilaterally fired by the president. I’ve introduced bipartisan legislation with Senator Lindsey Graham that will provide checks and balances and help stop the president from doing something so clearly improper.
