Legislation to protect Mueller 'not necessary,' McConnell says

"Obviously the views of the majority leader are important to consider, but they do not govern what happens here in the Judiciary Committee", Grassley said at a committee meeting on Thursday.

"I think it's probably unconstitutional and I don't think there's any realistic chance that the president will fire Mr. Mueller", Sen. We know that Trump already has tried to fire him, twice, but been talked out of it.

Cavuto failed to make the obvious follow-up: Even if Trump refused to sign the bill, the Senate could override his veto with 67 votes.

Democrats said Republicans opposed to the legislation were simply protecting Trump.

The committee will likely add an amendment to the bill before sending it to the full Senate, but it's facing an uphill battle after that.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, put the bill on his committee's agenda for a markup Thursday, which under the panel's rules means it will it will come before the committee next week.

"This is not necessary, there's no indication that Mueller is going to be fired", McConnell said in a Fox News interview on Tuesday.
