Sure, there is a chunk of people who will take his "fake news" comment as an ironclad assertion that The New York Times is wrong about his move to fire Mueller.

If she were to change her mind and seek the Democratic nomination, Winfrey would probably face a crowded field of rivals vying for the chance to challenge President Trump's reelection.

"It really makes liars of the president and a number of his top aides", Keilar explained, rolling a montage of White House aides insisting the president had not considered dismissing the special counsel.

Initially, Hannity said of the bombshell report: "They're trying to change the story".

White House lawyer Ty Cobb declined to comment on the President's actions to CNN, citing "respect for the Office of the Special Counsel and its process". That's according to a new report from The New York Times.

Thus, if Mueller does believe the president has violated the law, he would collect this evidence in his report at the end of the investigation. Before departing for Davos, Trump said he was "looking forward" to being interviewed, under oath, by Mueller's investigators.

President Trump tried to fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the Russia investigation, last June. Hannity, who like the president has voiced concern that Mueller's investigation may be politically biased, fired back by saying Scarborough had "sold his soul" to stay employed with MSNBC. That particular argument seems to contradict the first, since it implies that Mueller is involved with the family.

Neither the White House nor White House Counsel Don Mcgahn has issued a denial of the report that Trump wanted Special Counsel Robert Mueller fired.

A person familiar with the matter told Reuters that McGahn was "fed up" after Trump's order.

Gingrich pointed out that in a text message, then-FBI official Peter Strzok expressed that "there's no big there there" in regard to the Russia investigation.

"There is still a fort around Mueller that congressional Republicans or at least congressional Republican leadership are prepared to defend", said Dan Senor, a former advisor to House Speaker Paul Ryan.
