Former FBI Director, Robert Mueller

(Worthy News) - Four U.S. senators, including Republicans Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Thom Tillis of North Carolina, introduced legislation Wednesday that would make it hard for President Trump to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

The proposal could get its first vote Thursday, though Republican floor leaders are skeptical of the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act.

But the key Republican at the committee level — Sen. Charles Grassley, Iowa Republican and Judiciary Committee chairman — has said he will allow the bill to come to a vote, telling CNN that he hoped that could happen Thursday. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. What you are forgetting is that the bill to become law it would need to be signed by the President. Do you want the President to give up his Constitutional rights. When you report give the whole story not part of a story like CNN.

    • The story doesn't indicate becoming a law, it merely is reporting the FACT that a BILL was submitted to protect Mueller. Was this bill submitted? If so, then the story is accurate as it is laid out. The bigger story is the fact this bill was submitted with "bi-partisan" support and may be passed by Congress, showing the President has fewer and fewer allies in his own party!
