Schumer Warns Trump Not to Fire Mueller: ‘Don’t Even Think About It’
SCHUMER: "I say to the President, Mr. President, you have it wrong. Interfering with the investigation would be a disgrace. Calling it an attack on our country is a disgrace. What matters is the rule of law. In this country, no man is above the law, not even the president. Mr. President, your comments were the disgrace. Now, if the President is thinking of using this raid to fire Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise interfere with the chain of command in the Russia probe, we have one simple message for him. Don’t even think about it. Special Counsel Mueller has uncovered a deep and detailed pattern of Russian interference in our elections. It has led to several indictments and guilty pleas. It has also led the Trump Administration itself to level sanctions against Russian individuals for meddling in our elections. That is proof positive that Mueller’s investigation is not a so-called witch hunt. If the President’s own administration has leveled sanctions against Russian individuals for meddling in our elections, how can the President say it’s a witch hunt?"
