President Donald Trump on Monday addressed the possibility of firing special counsel Robert Mueller, once again railing on the ongoing investigation into Russian collusion during the 2016 presidential election.
In a meeting with military leadership, a reporter asked Trump about Mueller, whose referral led to an FBI raid on Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, on Monday.
“Why don’t I just fire Mueller?” Trump asked, responding to a reporter’s question. “Well, I think it’s a disgrace what’s going on. We’ll see what happens, but I think it’s really a sad situation … Many people have said, ‘you should fire him.’ Again, they found nothing, and in finding nothing, that’s a big statement.”
He added that Mueller’s team has “the biggest conflicts of interest I have ever seen.”

Trump made the statement shortly after agents raided Cohen’s office and hotel room, reportedly seizing documents, including one related to the $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels. Trump has said he didn’t know about the payment, which was made weeks before the 2016 election.
The president has also denied collusion between his campaign and Russia, and on Monday he said that Mueller’s investigation is a “witch hunt.”
Trump’s comments renewed Democrats’ concerns that he will fire Mueller before the probe is finished.
