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