Paul Ryan: Mueller Shouldn’t Be Fired, ‘We’re Not Gonna Interfere With This Investigation’

Speaker Paul Ryan said today that Congress will not “interfere” with Robert Mueller‘s investigation.

Some members of Congress have proposed that Mueller be protected from a potential presidential firing, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said “I don’t hear much pressure to pass anything” on that.

Chris Wallace asked Ryan about the Mueller probe and how there’s a resolution being proposed by some Republicans in Congress saying that Mueller “is compromised” and should resign.

Ryan said, “No, I don’t think he should be stepping down. I don’t think he should be fired, and the President’s made it clear he’s not going to do that.

“So no, we’re not gonna interfere with this investigation.”
