Booker's comments came a day after McConnell told Fox News' Neil Cavuto on "Your World" that there was "no indication" that Mueller would be fired.

"Obviously, the majority leader's views are important to consider, but they do not govern what happens here in the Judiciary Committee", he said during a committee meeting. "We'll be having this in ground from their Senate". This procedural move is generally termed as Rule 14, which allows skipping of a committee process and lead the case directly to the Senate.

Republicans both inside and outside the government warn that firing Mr. Mueller would be very unwise.

It's kind of trivial, perhaps, but one of my favorite odd facts about the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom - the epic event that produced Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech - is that not one but two college kids in the bobbing sea of faces crammed around the Reflecting Pool listening to King's immortal words would grow up to become USA senators many years later.

Thomas Markle Junior said his sibling had "forgotten her roots" by appearing to distance herself from his side of the family. According to the source, the actress is a perfectionist and she is trying to "control everything going on around her".

GOP leaders in Congress have repeatedly cited vague, anonymous assurances from "the White House" that make them feel confident Mueller's job is safe. "We ought to head off a constitutional crisis at the pass, rather than waiting until it's too late".

"I don't think the president's going to do that, and just as a practical matter, even if we passed [the bill], why would he sign it?"

The bulk leader arrived strongly against attempts by Trump and household Republicans to reduce a few spending from the1.3 trillion budget bill signed.

Grassley told reporters the bill isn't just about Mueller. Trump, fuming about a raid of his personal lawyer's office by a different division of the FBI, said last week that the Mueller investigation is "an attack on our country" and is "corrupt".

Romania government supports moving embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, president concerned
Speaking in an interview with the Romanian TV channel ANTENA 3 , Dragnea revealed that the decision was made Wednesday night. Under Romanian legislation, President Klaus Iohannis would have the final say.

Grassley previously told sponsors of two competing special counsel bills that they needed to merge their proposals before he agreed to bring them up.

A breakdown in that relationship would be especially brutal for Republicans during an election year when polls show the Republican base loves Trump. "I don't think Mueller is the reason for passing this bill". And Republican lawmakers need Trump on their side politically to get their voters out to help them keep their congressional majorities in an increasingly hard electoral environment for them.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made clear that he has no intention to allow a vote on a bill created to protect the special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by President Donald Trump.

Protecting Mueller is not a priority for McConnell this November.
