Senator Susan Collins says President Trump should stop talking about Russia probe

Senator Susan Collins says President Trump should stop talking about Russia probe

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said Monday that it isn't congressional Republicans' role to defend President Trump from the investigations into Russian election interference and pushed back against the notion that special counsel Robert Mueller is biased against the president.

Asked why Republicans aren't defending the President, Ryan stressed that Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director under the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations, is "anything but" a biased partisan.

(CNN) Evidence is rapidly accumulating suggesting that the next volley in President Donald Trump's war on special counsel Robert Mueller will be the firing or forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "He's really sort of anything but", the speaker said during a radio appearance on "The Jay Weber Show". I think the facts will vindicate themselves. "Look, this is about Russia", Trump said.

"The frustrating things for House members is, it's Russia-this, Russia-that, it's tweet-this, tweet-that".

Ryan's defense of Mueller comes one day after White House counselor Kellyanne Conway slammed Mueller for his "band of Democratic donors". And beleaguered he should be, since the President who selected him is his "beleaguerer in chief", given the President's comments to The New York Times that Sessions should never have recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation and that had the President known of Sessions' intentions in this regard, he never would have appointed the senator from Alabama to his prestigious and powerful position in the first place. Could it be because they are trying to influence the impartiality of the special counsel's investigation?

Her suggestion directed at Trump arrived after he gave a pointed interview to The New York Times last week and said that Mueller should not be allowed to investigate Trump's family-based finances as he believed that such a query would be beyond the case of the Russian probe.
