"The Attorney General may remove a Special Counsel for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies".
"The people in the administration were quick to reach out to me and say Chris Ruddy doesn't speak for this administration", he said. He said there is no cause to consider removal, and that that the Attorney General's office alone would make that decision with the special counsel.
The public testimony Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence committee should yield Sessions' most extensive comments to date on questions that have dogged his entire tenure as attorney general and that led him three months ago to step aside from the Russian Federation probe.
"He interviewed. a few days before he was appointed special counsel with the president, who was looking at him potentially to become the next Federal Bureau of Investigation director", Ruddy said. The White House finally said Tuesday evening that Trump has "no intention" of firing Mueller, amid speculation and concern that he was weighing that option.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters Tuesday he had confidence in Mueller, and dismissed reports that Trump might fire Mueller as "rumors". But his refusal to answer a question about who directed him to write the infamous memo suggests he might also be a witness to a crime being investigated by the special counsel. "And I'm not going to speculate on what he will or will not do", Sekulow said. Let's also recall that despite the media's tunnel vision on Trump, the wider Russian Federation investigation is examining a much wider array of issues and questions pertaining to our geopolitical adversary's malicious meddling efforts in the 2016 election.
Former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrichtweeted Monday that he refused to believe Mueller could ever handle the Russian investigation fairly. In what became known as the Saturday Night Massacre, President Richard Nixon ordered then-Attorney General Elliot Richardson to fire Cox.
"I think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel", Ruddy said in a TV interview. However, senior White House officials stressed that Ruddy did not meet with the president when he recently visited the White House.
"Mr. Ruddy never spoke to the President regarding this issue", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said late Monday.
