Donald Trump not planning on firing Robert Mueller: lawyer
The lawyer, And, Jay Sekulow, also said pardons for his former campaign aides facing federal charges “are not on the table.”
Sekulow’s comments to ABC’s “Good Morning America” come a day after a former Trump aide admitted lying to the FBI about meeting with Russian intermediaries and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty to money laundering and conspiracy charges.
“The president has not indicated to me or to anyone else that I work with that he has any intent on terminating Robert Mueller,” Sekulow said.
On pardons, Sekulow said, “I have not had a conversation with the president regarding pardons. And pardons are not on the table.”
