Rep. Jerry Nadler To Re-Intro Mueller Protection Bill

The New York Daily News reports:

Protecting Robert Mueller is a priority for Democrats as they take over the House on Thursday.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the incoming House Judiciary Chairman, plans to re-introduce legislation to protect Mueller from being fired by President Trump, a congressional source told the Daily News.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle contemplated a bill late last year protecting the special counsel from being fired by the commander-in-chief.

McConnell blocked the bill from a Senate vote last time and it’s likely he’ll do so again.
