An Overview of the Forthcoming Meeting

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and House Speaker Paul Ryan will attend the meeting with President Trump. Many outsiders have speculated that the upcoming gathering will address the recent FBI office raid of President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Upon learning of the raid, the President slammed the occurrence and even took to Twitter to share additional afterthoughts:

Republicans scheduled to attend today’s upcoming meeting are furthermore expecting intel into the President’s plans regarding Robert Mueller. The raid of Cohen’s office occurred after a referral from Mueller. Rumors that President Trump may or may not be considering firing Mueller have surfaced. However, many politicians believe firing Mueller could engender negative consequences.

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader McConnell vocalized his stance on the possibility of the President firing Mueller:

I’m not going to answer the hypothetical because I don’t think he’s going to be removed. I think he’ll be allowed to finish his job.

Many Americans remain convinced that the sole purpose of the White House meeting revolves around the recent descent upon Cohen. However, plans for the convening happened prior to the FBI raid. While the upcoming gathering will certainly address Mueller, there are other critical subject matters.

Reports from Politico affirm that Republicans will address Senate Cabinet confirmations, potential tariffs against China, and the crisis in Syria.
