Skip to comments.Senators to introduce new bipartisan bill to protect Mueller
Posted on 04/11/2018 8:28:29 AM PDT by McGruff
A group of bipartisan senators is introducing new legislation to limit President Trump's ability to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Christopher Coons (D-Del.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) will introduce the legislation, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, on Wednesday.
The legislation would let Mueller, or any other special counsel, receive an "expedited judicial review" within 10 days of being fired to determine if it was for a "good cause." If it was determined it wasn't, he would be reinstated.
It would also codify regulations that only a senior Justice Department official can fire a special counsel and that they must provide the reason in writing.

President Trump, of course, should veto this idiocy.
Fools. Like THAT will over ride a veto by POTUS.
We need new GOP Senators.
Flake, Corker, Hatch, Heller, Alexander, Graham, McCain, Murkowsky, Hoeven, Rubio, Tillis, Burr, Lankford, Gardner, Cornyn, Cochran, Collins, Sasse, Kennedy, Shelby, Ernst, Blunt, McConnell, Wicker, Portman, Isakson, Johnson, Toomey, Rounds, Thune, Gaines, Barasso and Enzi are all Bush League Republicans hell bent on making America into North Mexico
If Trump launches a regime change war in Syria, Mueller can have him for all I care.
Can they get 2/3 majority in both Houses?
If not, they are wasting their time.
Trump will pocket veto.
RE: Senators to introduce new bipartisan bill to protect Mueller
So, for these legislators, it is more important to protect an un-elected prosecutor who has little to show after one year, than to protect an elected President?
They used the word ‘integrity’ like they know what it means...
Trump should veto it. End of story.
They failed to add it in the Omnibus bill.
It is time for these men and women to do the people’s work. Not protecting illegals, pedophiles, actors or actresses, big donors etc. etc. etc. This is getting to be more than a circus. We the People deserve better. God is the ONLY answer for this country. I believe President Trump and Vice-President Pence get it!!!
Do these idiots really want to do this with primaries and Mid-Terms
approaching? It would be death by sucicide.
I’m as upset with Syria war mongering as anyone but that’s a little over the top.
“Bi-partisan” used with Linda Graham is just stupid.
“””””””Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Christopher Coons (D-Del.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) will introduce the legislation,”””””””””
Bipartisan? I only see flaming liberals on the list.
Just may be out of the New World Order playbook!
Trump should fire Mueller before they pass it.
