Sen. Angus King: It would be ‘a huge mistake’ for Trump to fire Robert Mueller


Sen. Angus King, one of the members of the intelligence committee who will be questioning Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday, tells TODAY that “the president cannot fire Bob Mueller”: he must ask the attorney general do so. And if Trump did that, it would be “a huge mistake,” King says: “If we want to get it over it, let’s follow through and get this thing done.” He also thinks that Trump testifying before Congress under oath would set “a bad precedent.”
