Trump Says He Won’t Fire Mueller

President Trump “sought to douse speculation that he may fire special counsel Robert Mueller amid an intensifying campaign by Trump allies to attack the wide-ranging Russia investigation as improper and politically motivated,” the Washington Post reports.

“Returning to the White House from Camp David, Trump was asked Sunday whether he intended to fire Mueller. ‘No, I’m not,’ he told journalists, insisting that there was ‘no collusion whatsoever’ between his campaign and Russia.”

Mike Allen: “The Trump lawyers’ strategy is to cooperate with Mueller on the inside game. The outside chorus tries to rough up Mueller, in case his findings are trouble for POTUS.”
