Sen. McCain Joins Growing List of Republicans Defending Mueller


U.S. Senator John McCain joined a growing list of  Republicans who voiced out their support for Special Counsel Robert Mueller amid speculations that President Donald Trump may be preparing to fire him.

On Saturday, Pres. Trump reiterated in a tweet that the Mueller investigation is a “witch hunt” and “should never have been started. The Special Counsel is looking into the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

On Sunday, the President posted another tweet attacking Mueller’s team of investigators. Once again, he said “no collusion” between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

Political observers viewed Pres. Trump’s recent tweets as a prelude to his next move. They suggested that the President may soon direct U.S. Attorney General Jess Sessions to fire Mueller and shutdown his investigation.
