GOP Sen. Cornyn: ‘Would Be a Mistake’ for Trump to Fire Mueller

Senator John Cornyn warned this morning that firing Robert Mueller would be a bad idea.

One of the top Republicans in the Senate tweeted yesterday about the Mueller investigation and what the special counsel needs to do:

He told George Stephanopoulos on This Week today he respects Mueller and “would think he’d want to eliminate challenges to the integrity of his investigation by eliminating agents who have taken positions either in text messages or through their political activity.”

Stephanopoulos noted how the FBI agents who exchanged anti-Trump texts are no longer on the investigation. Cornyn said Mueller “needs to make sure he vets that team.”

But he made it clear that President Trump firing Mueller “would be a mistake.”
