Trump’s Mueller fury: The White House confirmed this week that President Trump believes he has the authority to fire Robert Mueller himself. “He certainly believes he has the power to [remove him],” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters, breaking with legal experts who contend that Trump can’t fire the special counsel personally. Instead, he would have to order Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has overseen the Russia probe since Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself, to fire him. Rosenstein has said he would refuse to fire Mueller without clear evidence of misconduct. White House insiders told Axios.com that Trump is at a “breaking point” with Mueller after the offices of Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, were raided by the FBI. CNN reported that Trump is considering firing Rosenstein and replacing him with someone willing to put more limits on Mueller’s probe.
