President Donald Trump is not considering firing the special counsel investigating Russian election interference, a top White House lawyer said, after a cascade of Trump tweets revived chatter that the deeply frustrated president may be preparing to can the veteran prosecutor.In a first for Trump, he jabbed directly at special counsel Robert Mueller by name in weekend tweets that both challenged the investigation's existence and suggested political bias on the part of Mueller's investigators. Trump had said Mueller would cross a red line with such a step.Mueller is a Republican.Members of Congress warned Trump to not even think about terminating Mueller.Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., called for the passage of bipartisan bills designed to protect Mueller that have stalled in Congress.Trump cannot directly fire Mueller, who can only be dismissed for cause.The Associated Press later reported that McCabe kept personal memos detailing interactions with Trump that have been provided to Mueller's office and are similar to notes compiled by Comey.Mueller is investigating whether Trump's actions, including Comey's ouster, constitute obstruction of justice.
