Trump Sought to Fire Mueller in December

According to published reports, the release attributed the shift in voters' attitudes to Federal Bureau of Investigation raids on Monday of the home and offices of Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, reportedly due to a tip provided by Mueller.

Earlier this week, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also stated that the president "certainly has the power" to dismiss Mueller, who has been conducting an investigation into Trump's 2016 campaign since the president fired former FBI Director James Comey last May. "They all only work for him and his Constitutional duty to take care of the laws that are faithfully executed".

In at least two Supreme Court cases, the nation's top judges have ruled that the president can not legally remove employees of a government agency-an authority that lies with the heads of each department. "I've had conversations with the president, and he's not talking about it", Meadows said. "Not offload it to the independent counsel Bob Mueller". The goal of the raid was to look for "records about payments to two women who claim they had affairs with Mr. Trump, and information related to the publisher of The National Enquirer's role in silencing one of the women", according to The New York Times report.

President Trump promised to strike Syria and warned Russian Federation against supporting Bashar al-Assad.
