Graham to Introduce Legislation to Make it Hard for Trump to Fire Mueller

Graham to Introduce Legislation to Make it Hard for Trump to Fire MuellerSen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sounded off on President Trump’s behavior toward his attorney general on Capitol Hill Thursday, telling him he is acting out of “weakness” by trying to intimidate Sessions to quit.

“If he wants to fire him, fire him,” the senator said, but don’t resort to bullying.

In particular, Graham was unnerved by the president's sending a series of tweets questioning Sessions's loyalty and fitness to serve.

"He's a good man who deserves better," Graham said.

Graham called Sessions to offer his support, telling him to "hang in there." If Trump does fire Sessions, there will be "hell to pay," because Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has indicated he will not hold any new confirmation hearings for the position.

The committee's agenda is set in stone.
