NBC News reports:
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said he doesn’t believe there is a need for Congress to pass any kind of legislation aimed at protecting special counsel Robert Mueller from termination.
“I don’t think it’s necessary,” the Wisconsin Republican said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet The Press” when specifically asked whether or not he would bring this kind of bill to the House floor if it passed through the Senate. “I don’t think he’s going to fire Mueller.”
“First of all, I don’t think he should be fired,” Ryan reiterated. “I think he should be left to do his job, and I don’t think they’re really contemplating this. We’ve had plenty of conversations about this. It’s not in the president’s interest to do that. We have a rule of law system. No one is above that rule of law system.”
