Don’t expect Rod Rosenstein to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller anytime soon.
This Senate Judiciary he voted 14 to 7 to protect Special Counsel Mueller from being fired by President Donald Trump if he so desired. Pres. Trump has told the media that he was not going to fire Mueller while he was working on his investigation but they didn’t want to hear that.
Protect Mueller from what? It is not a permanent position, primarily when he has found nothing supporting the fundamental assumption of the investigation! What has been proven is that the initial assumption for the inquiry is falsified.
The bill was written as a result of concern that President Donald Trump would fire special counsel Robert Mueller in an attempt to stymie the Russia investigation. Mueller and his team are currently interested in interviewing Trump to determine whether the president engaged in obstruction of justice.
The 14-7 vote in favor of the bill was divided mostly on party lines, with the Democrats voting yes and the Republicans voting no. Four Republicans, however, voted in favor: Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ), a prominent Trump detractor who will not run for re-election this year, Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has saidthere’s no chance he will bring the bill to the Senate floor for a vote.
This is not good – precedent will not allow them to fire any special counsel ever. Any Republican backing this should be voted out and ousted- they are not serving the people if they back it.

In my opinion, this move is just a campaign ad to say that Congress had to protect the special counsel from being fired by the President of the United States. Mueller has had over a year or more to come up with some proof of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign team and he has not done it.
Pres. Trump has called a witch hunt, and that’s basically what it is, plain and simple.
