Trump says 'many people' have told him to fire Robert Mueller

Zuckerberg: Facebook Is Working With Special Counsel Mueller in Probe

Trump appeared to directly float the idea of firing special counsel Robert Mueller at the start of his military leadership meeting on Monday, calling the special counsel's investigation a "disgrace" and defending his firing of former FBI Director James Comey as the "right thing" to do.

Minutes later he publicly unleashed his sharpest invective to date against the sweeping investigation, calling the Monday search "a disgrace".

Agents are believed to be looking into a $130,000 payment that attorney Michael Cohen allegedly made just before the election to porn star Stormy Daniels. "Republicans and Democrats need to make clear that they will not allow President Trump or anyone on his behalf to interfere with or attempt to impede any of these ongoing and serious investigations".

Federal agents searched Cohen's office at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in NY, where he had been working as part of a "strategic partnership" with the law firm Squire Patton Boggs.

"I think it's very likely that they will be looking at the source of that money paid to Stormy Daniels, and any other women", said Mimi Rocah, a former federal prosecutor in NY.

A furious Trump, who in the last month has escalated his attacks on Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, said from the White House that it was a "disgrace" that the FBI "broke into" his lawyer's office.

Daniels claims the money was given to her in order to keep her affair with Trump, which happened while he was married to Melania, a secret.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's Manhattan office, seizing records about Cohen's clients, including those related to a 2016 payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had a sexual encounter with Trump.

'He should have certainly let us know if he was going to recuse himself and we would have put a different attorney general in, ' said Trump, revising a longtime anger at the situation. One Mueller witness, former Trump aide Sam Nunberg, recently connected the special counsel with the payment, saying in an interview last month that prosecutors had asked him about payments to women.

Cohen's attorney, Stephen Ryan, said Monday's raid was conducted by the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan and was based at least partly on a referral from Mueller.

Trump called it "an attack on our country and what we all stand for".

Under Justice Department regulations, Mueller is required to consult with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein when his investigators uncover new evidence that may fall outside his original mandate. It also comes as aides are girding for the release of Comey's memoir next week, which promises to reveal new details about the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's conversations with the president and the Russian Federation probe. So how did the pro-Trump conservative commentator react to this bombshell?

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) issued a stark warning to Trump in a series of tweets late Monday.

Though the president previously said he was "looking forward" to talking with Mueller, he did not discount the possibility of firing the special counsel. Rosenstein then would determine whether to allow Mueller to proceed or to assign the matter to another US attorney or another part of the Justice Department.
