On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he will not allow legislation to protect Mueller on the Senate floor.



McConnell says that this decision is because he doesn’t believe Trump will fire Mueller. This is despite the fact that the White Huse has been bringing it up over and over.

“I don’t think he should fire Mueller and I don’t think he’s going to,” McConnel said in his interview. “So this is a piece of legislation that isn’t necessary in my judgment.”

This news follows recently introduced legislation that would protect the Special Counsel from being fired. The measure was created by a bipartisan group of Senators. They called it the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act.

McConnell reminded everyone that he is in charge of what legislation will be voted upon.

“I’m the one who decides what we take to the floor, that’s my responsibility as the majority leader, we will not be having this on the floor of the Senate,” he said.

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) brought up the fact that Trump has repeatedly threatened Mueller.



“I don’t know from where Leader McConnell gets his confidence Trump will not take action to interfere with this investigation,” said Coons. “Given the number of times in recent days the President has tweeted or spoken directly or indirectly in ways that I think threaten the investigation led by Special Counsel Mueller.”

He went on: “I’m focused on making sure we get to a mark-up on the Judiciary Committee next Thursday and that we’re in a place for it to get passed the Judiciary Committee.”
