Schumer Warns President Trump Not to Fire Mueller or Interfere With Russia Probe After FBI Raid

April 9, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement warning President Trump not to fire Special Counsel Mueller or interfere with the Russia probe after the FBI raid.

“If the president is thinking of using this raid to fire Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise interfere with the chain of command in the Russia probe, we Democrats have one simple message for him: don’t.”

“Special Counsel Mueller, a Republican, has uncovered a deep and detailed pattern of Russian interference in our elections that has led to indictments and guilty pleas. It has also led to the Trump administration itself leveling sanctions against Russian individuals for meddling in our elections, proof that it’s not a so-called ‘witch-hunt.’

“The investigation is critical to the health of our democracy, and must be allowed to continue.”
