President Trump told Reuters that he could “run” the special counsel’s Russia investigation if he wanted to.
Said Trump: “I can go in, and I could do whatever — I could run it if I want. But I decided to stay out. I’m totally allowed to be involved if I wanted to be. So far, I haven’t chosen to be involved. I’ll stay out.”
”Legal experts disagree on the exact process, but there is some agreement that Trump has power over the inquiry, including the ability to bring about special counsel Robert Mueller’s ouster.”
