He had called for the firing last June, according to one person familiar with the matter.

A White House spokesman referred questions to Ty Cobb, the attorney coordinating the administration's response to the Russia investigations, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment. "The President keeps saying, 'There's no there, there.' Well, if there's no there, there, let these investigations, including our bipartisan Senate intelligence investigation, finish our job".

"Fake news", he told reporters while walking by them in Davos, Switzerland.

President Donald Trump delivers remarks in the White House's Oval Office on December 22, 2017. He served as the the principle lawyerly voice intervening to explain legal limits to Mr. Trump about his various intentions or desires.

Mueller's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election ahs already resulted in charges being brought against three people.

So, why then is Trump describing it as "fake news"?

Don McGahn may have been trying to save his own skin when he refused to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

"I've certainly said I oppose any firing - but he didn't, and that was the right outcome". Discussion of firing the special counsel quickly died down. "My dealings with Bob Mueller have always been cordial, respectful - the way it should be". "Typical New York Times fake stories".

White House communications director Hicks was interviewed by Mueller's team in December, ABC reports.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNN he's "not concerned" about the reports.

The report follows developments that the special counsel interviewed attorney general Jeff Sessions for several hours last week. "It hardly seems a basis to fire Robert Mueller because he once misplaced your 9 iron at the golf club". "He views this as this is going to be his ultimate imprint on American government'".

"I haven't given it any thought". This footage comes to us from Arizona where, you see that red SUV?

"I would do it under oath, absolutely", he added.

McGahn, though, has also said he did not know when he might be asked to leave a job, reports Savage.

"What this is all about is further evidence of corruption, more than bias, but corruption at the highest levels of the FBI", Johnson told Fox News on Tuesday.

"If the FBI Director, Christopher Wray, and Rod Rosenstein don't want it released, I probably want it released", says Hamilton.
