Despite that fact, Trump, of course, lost his mind over it, attacking the Federal Bureau of Investigation for doing its job and declaring it "an attack on our country". But as Mueller has been running an exceedingly tight ship, with details of his doings, his plans, his overall strategy held close to the vest, there may be so much more at stake.
McConnell also tells reporters he doesn't believe Mueller will be removed.
"I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now or longer", he said. "He should be allowed to finish the job he was assigned". "We'll see what happens", Trump said.
The Wall Street Journal in a just-published report adds that "Federal prosecutors in NY asked the Trump Organization, President Donald Trump's flagship company, for records relating to a $130,000 payment made by his personal lawyer to a former adult-film actress, according to a person familiar with the matter".
Under Justice Department regulations, only Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Russian Federation investigation, can fire Mueller. He is either too intimidated or compromised to interfere with a Special Counsel who is on a mission to destroy the President.

The attached picture shows a hockey stick leaning on the porch and the message reads: "Leaving it out on the porch tonight". Blaxland said when her family woke up Sunday morning they made a decision to put on a hot chocolate stand for the Broncos.
A White House aide said Justice Department guidance that only Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, could fire Mueller did not apply to Trump, who has the authority to fire anyone in the executive branch. What they should be explicitly saying is that you obstruct justice by firing Mueller, otherwise it's tampering, obstruction and you risk impeachment.
"There are lots of things a lawyer might retain that aren't covered by privilege", Sandick says.

Trump is fuming after federal agents raised his personal attorney's office in NY. Cohen has also insisted he didn't believe Daniels allegations, that he made the payment to her exclusively out of a desire to protect Trump from the airing of these scurrilous allegations. Could it have something to do with the Stormy Daniels case?
Daniels' lawsuit, as Sputnik previously reported, was in response to remarks Cohen made in February 2018 that suggested the actress was untrustworthy and that the public should ignore her claims about having an affair with Trump in 2006. Trump has denied any collusion by his campaign.
Ryan did not elaborate on the documents taken from Cohen's office but said he has cooperated with investigators, including meeting last fall with lawmakers looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
A chilly weekend ahead with a chance for snow
The Rockies home opener is today , temperatures will be in th 30s and falling through the game with light snow very likely. Presently, I would say accumulation will be on the lighter side on the coastline because of where we are in April .
We also know that in the raid on Cohen on Monday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized documents related to the Daniels case.
A single sentence in a story about the Cohen raid by my colleague Matt Apuzzo brilliantly hinted at Trump's vantage point, from which he sees any moat around him vanishing and his castle under siege. "It's an attack on our country in a true sense; it's an attack on what we all stand for".
President Donald Trump launched a Twitter tirade Tuesday morning to complain about a Justice Department raid against his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen, publicly venting anger over the raid for a second straight day. The move enraged the president, who called the raid a "disgrace", and has captivated the attention of both political parties.
In a statement Monday, Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, called the raid "inappropriate and unnecessary".
Mueller's probe has led to charges or guilty pleas for several Trump associates, including former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, for alleged offenses such as money laundering and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
