White House Says Trump Not Planning to Fire Mueller

After a weekend of combative statements by President Trump, lawyer Ty Cobb felt the need to issue this statement:

In response to media speculation and related questions being posed to the Administration, the White House yet again confirms that the President is not considering or discussing the firing of the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.

Mike Allen: “The White House strategy had been to cooperate with Mueller. So this is an effort to turn down the temperature after a weekend of increasingly personal provocations aimed at the special counsel.”
