Since the report, legislation has been introduced in the Senate to prevent Trump from firing Mueller except for "misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, or conflict of interest". The pair were involved in the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of email as secretary of state and also were part of the early stages of Mueller's probe.
Trump reportedly directed White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller, but backed off after McGahn threatened to quit over the order. There is no obstruction whatsoever. "As a matter of fact, I think Mr. Mueller is the flawless guy to get to the bottom of all this, and he will".
The number of voluntary interviews includes eight people from the White House counsel's office.
According to sources, the special counsel has asked other witnesses about whether Trump has tried to obstruct justice by, for instance, firing Comey, who previously headed the Russian Federation investigation as FBI Director.
Georgetown Law professor Michael Seidman offered a theory as to why the Mueller story is surfacing all these months later. These included Mueller's relationship with James Comey, who succeeded Mueller as Federal Bureau of Investigation director until Trump fired him in May, and Mueller's resignation from one of Trump's golf clubs over a fee dispute in 2011, other people said.
That reaction is nearly universally negative, as we learned when rumours of Mueller's ouster first surfaced last summer.
But in Seidman's view, there's little reason to think that Mueller is any safer today. It was Trump who later fired Comey as head of the FBI, because he thought Comey's firing would make the Russian Federation investigation go away.
And sometime in the not-too-distant future, Trump will have to sit down in front of Mueller and try to explain all of this. "I think he's going to feel he has to feel one way or another he has to get rid of him". But Republicans were quick to dismiss the report, pointing out that Mueller had not actually been fired.
If President Bill Clinton's lie under oath about his affair with Monica Lewinsky (which was not the topic that independent counsel Kenneth Starr was originally charged with investigating) was grounds for impeachment, would a Trump lie under oath regarding any aspect of the Russian Federation investigation, including potential acts of obstruction of justice, also be grounds?
Several congressional committees have been reviewing text messages and have been slowly releasing them. "And that's where the crisis comes", said Seidman. "Typical New York Times fake stories", Trump retorted dismissively when asked about it by reporters at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
At a hearing in late September, a majority of the Senate Judiciary Committee appeared to be on board with advancing legislation to add job protections for Mueller and future special counsels, despite concerns about the constitutionality of such measures.
