>> Mr. President will comment->> The question of US President Donald Trump will fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller presumably put to rest again as of Monday if not directly by Trump himself then by White House attorney Ty Cobb. Cobb issuing a statement Sunday night after at least two prominent Republican Senators issued shop rebukes to Trump's weekend twitter attacks against both the FBI and Mueller's Federal probe into the Russia meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Cobb saying quote, in response to the media speculation and related questions being posted to the Administration, the White House yet again confirms that the President is not considering or discussing the firing of the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller. The statement came after Senator Lindsey Graham on CNN Sunday said that if Trump were to dismiss Mueller it would be quote, the end of his Presidency.
00:00:55
Fellow Republican, Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic, told CNN he hopes Trump, quote, doesn't go there. Adding, we can't, in Congress, accept that. Trump has increasingly attacked the Special Counsel's investigation, on Sunday, going after former FBI Director, James Comey. Then, just fired former FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe.

And finally tweeting, Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big crooked Hillary supporters, and zero Republicans? Mueller is long time registered Republican, he dismissed members of his teams in the past for sending private messages that could suggest anti-Trump bias. Despite Cobb's statement Sunday night, Trump again lashed out about the investigation on Monday tweeting, it's a total WITCH HUN with massive conflicts of interest.
