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.”
