Marco Rubio: Trump is Not Going to Fire Mueller

The Florida senator responded to worries from Senate colleagues that Trump would fire the special counsel.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday that he cannot see President Trump firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller in response to recent revelations in the Russia investigation.

“That’s not going to happen,” Rubio said of the possible scenario.

“The best thing that could happen for the president and the country is a full and credible investigation,” he added.

The Florida senator said that a thorough investigation can restore public trust in judicial proceedings.
