Sen. Richard Blumenthal: Judiciary Committee pushing bill to protect Robert Mueller

US Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell yesterday ruled out introducing a bill to protect Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, from being fired by President Donald Trump, Fox News reported. He added: "I don't think the president's going to do that just as a practical matter. That's my responsibility as the Majority Leader, and we will not be having this on the floor of the U.S. Senate", the defiant Republican said in an interview Tuesday on Fox News. "I'm the one who decides what we take to the floor".

When Cavuto explained that some of McConnell's Republican colleagues clearly believed Trump might fire Mueller, based on their decision to back the bill, McConnell shot back.

Sessions added that he would be shocked if Mueller was sacked by the president.

"I have assurances that it's not, because I've been talking to people in the White House about it", Ryan said. He said McConnell has a "terrible job".

"While I'm glad the majority leader believes the President would be wrong to fire Special Counsel Mueller, it's a mistake not to pass legislation to protect the investigation", he said in a statement.

Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said the special counsel bill is "so much more" than another policy debate.

The bipartisan legislation was introduced last week as Trump publicly criticized Mueller, who is investigating potential ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign as well as possible obstruction of justice by the president.
