An increasing number of Americans believe special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is political biased.
Recent reports indicated that Trump has been especially irate with an FBI raid of his personal lawyer's office, the findings which could eventually be turned over to Mueller for his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Mueller's team has reportedly been finalizing a report on whether Trump committed obstruction of justice that was scheduled to be released by the summer.
In a separate Twitter post Thursday, though, Trump denied reports that he had tried to dismiss Mueller past year.
Trump has no authority to directly fire Mueller - Rosenstein has that power - though the president could initiate the process by first getting rid of Rosenstein.
He's denying a report in The New York Times, and says that if he'd wanted to fire Mueller, he would have done so. Over the past few months, the special counsel's office has issued indictments for several Trump campaign associates, as well as White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, for various charges, including lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about their ties with Russian officials. "I think it would be a political mistake to do that".
Several top Republicans said they do not believe Trump will try to fire Mueller, whose probe has led to charges against members of the president's inner circle that include money laundering and lying under oath, but - so far - no direct charges of collusion with Russian Federation.
The articles that provoked Mr. Trump's anger in December - which were published by Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal and Reuters - said one of Mr. Mueller's subpoenas had targeted Mr. Trump's and his family's banking records at Deutsche Bank.
"It would be suicide for the president to fire Mueller, to want to talk about firing Mueller, the less the president said on this whole thing, the better off he would be, the stronger his presidency would be", Grassley said. "No Collusion, so they go insane!" according to the President.
"I think it's a disgrace what's going on", Trump told reporters at the White House.
"I have confidence that if he were to take that step, you would see not just an uprising from people on the left, but you would see Republicans saying that this has gone too far", Brian said.
"Why don't I just fire Mueller?" "We have a rule of law in this country and that's a principle we all uphold".
