On Sunday, the four-term Republican Senator Susan Collins said that she is open to supporting legislation that would make it harder to fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Department of Justice’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union, Collins said: “It would certainly not hurt to put that extra safeguard in place, given the latest stories.”
Collins said she had faith in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who gained direct authority over the probe after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself, to resist any pressure from the White House to fire Mueller.
Collins’ remarks come after The New York Times reported that Trump had already ordered Mueller fired but relented after White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign if he did. Discussing the Times story on the reported effort to fire Mueller, Collins said, “I think what happened here is, the president had a bad idea.”
She added: “He talked with his counsel, who explained to an angry and frustrated president why it was a bad idea, and that was seven months ago. And the White House counsel is still on the job, and Mr. Mueller is still aggressively investigating. And that’s as it should be.”
These are the never Trumpers who are Republicans but acting the same way as Democrats impeding on Trump’s presidency..they are just actually making Trump supporters stronger in their support. Collins no longer represents those who voted for her and she knows she wouldn’t win the Governor’s race due to that fact. She now represents people who openly disrespect our President.
But, it is clear that this is just a pathetic attempt to keep the Mueller investigation alive. This woman can’t even explain what it is Mueller is doing and Jake the snake just keeps talking bull**it with her. As long as Mueller is in office there will be cover-ups and corruption. He has covered for the most corrupt swampers and buried, destroyed, ignored evidence & failed investigation’s he handled.
