Russian Election Meddling: Pelosi Urges Trump To Let Mueller Do His Work

Grassley & Pelosi urge Trump: Let Mueller do his work-Really?

Russian election meddling

Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley on Friday urged the White House to let special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling “work its course,” amid reports that President Trump seriously considered firing Mr Mueller last summer.

Speaking to CNN, the powerful Iowa Republican said he did not believe Mr Trump was actually going to dismiss Mr Mueller and added that he remained open to bipartisan legislation aimed at further insulating the special counsel form the White House.

“I just don’t think the president — as unpredictable as he is — would fire Mueller, and I take the view, and I said so maybe not directly to the president, but indirectly to the president: Just let this work its course,” Mr Grassley said. Read more


Grassley on Russian Election Meddling Investigation

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley urged President Donald Trump Friday to let Robert Mueller’s investigation “work its course,” adding that he was “open” to considering bipartisan legislation aimed at protecting the special counsel.

In an interview with CNN, Grassley said he did not believe Trump would actually fire Mueller, despite reports Thursday night that the President took steps last June to dismiss the special counsel and later backed off after White House Counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit.

Later Friday, House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi characterized the reported move to fire Mr Mueller as “a grave pattern of attempts by the president to undermine and obstruct the ongoing investigations into Russia’s interference in our elections.”

“Equally stunning is the GOP Congress’ complicity in the White House’s interference in these investigations,” Ms Pelosi said in a statement from her office. Read more

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, put the bill on his committee’s agenda for a markup Thursday, which under the panel’s rules means it will come before the committee next week.
Grassley said that he was unconcerned about McConnell’s vow that he wouldn’t bring the bill to the floor, saying it was irrelevant to his committee’s work.

The legislation is seen as a potential buffer against concerns that Trump will try to fire Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller’s probe.
The measure is on the Judiciary Committee’s agenda for Thursday, but due to the panel’s rules, the bill will be marked up the following week. Read more
