Schumer calls on Republicans to back Mueller

"As I said before, if he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency", the South Carolina Republican said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Pressed on the issue, Paul said he would not "advocate" for Trump to try to force Mueller out, just as he "would have never advocated for the appointment of a special prosecutor".

Schumer says "Republican colleagues, particularly the leadership" need to make it clear that "firing Mueller is a red line for our democracy that can not be crossed". McCabe was sacked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday night after being long derided by the President.

Mr. McCabe fired back Friday night, releasing a statement saying Mr. Trump scapegoated him as part of an effort to discredit Mr. Mueller. The Mueller investigation is a final insult to the rule of law that was bequeathed to us, in effect, by the outgoing, corrupt Obama administration. "It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign", Trump said in a tweet as he slammed former FBI director Robert Mueller who is leading the federal investigation. Graham also said the Senate Judiciary Committee should conduct a public hearing on the firing of McCabe for the sake of transparency.

He said later, "If you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it".

"If you believe, as we found, there's no evidence of collusion, you should want special counsel Mueller to take all the time and have all the independence he needs to do his job", said Gowdy. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said during an appearance on CNN.

Sen. Marco Rubio said McCabe should have been allowed to retire-he was sacked less than 48 hours before he was due to retire.

Trump, meanwhile, posted a series of tweets on McCabe, Comey, and Mueller Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

Axios reports the McCabe memos corroborate Comey's account of his own firing.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic, said it appeared the president's latest comments seemed to be preparing the ground for the firing of Mr Mueller.

"I think the president is going to have a really hard time nominating and having approved another attorney general", Gowdy said.

Another Republican, Senator James Lankford, said he does not believe Trump would fire Mueller. Initially Mr Dowd said he was speaking for the president but later clarified he was "speaking for myself".

He referenced legislation that would aim to protect the special counsel from Trump.

He tells ABC's "This Week" that Trump is clearly frustrated, but the "best thing the special counsel can do is finish the investigation and gather all the information that's needed to come to a conclusion, so the American people can make their own decision".

"We ought to pass those bills now", Durbin said.
