More Fake News From the New York Times

Hannity said he was unwilling to rely on the Times, which he said relies too often on anonymous sources. McConnell would not comment on his conversations with McGahn, but did say through a spokesman that by choosing the attorney, "President Trump picked the finest White House counsel I've ever worked with".

CBS News has confirmed the president discussed conflict of interest concerns about Mueller with top advisors at the time But by August, Trump publicly insisted there was no thought of removing Mueller.

KEITH: And the interesting thing is that then Christopher Ruddy in that interview goes on to discuss the very conflicts of interest that The Times now says were President Trump's proposed justifications for firing Mueller or trying.

"Fake news, folks. Fake news". Earlier, he has fired the national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey.

Wired magazine, citing a person familiar with the matter, reported that at least one person with Facebook's team was interviewed as a part of Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference with 2016 presidential election and collusion with the Trump campaign. Trump representatives similarly declined to comment to Politico, the Post, and CNN.

The Times cited four sources speaking under condition of anonymity saying that Trump tried to get rid of Mueller when the news first broke that Mueller would be looking at an obstruction of justice case against him. Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion between his campaign and Russia. The interviewees include eight people from the White House counsel's office.

The president's attorney is emphasizing White House cooperation with the investigation.

"You know, we'll deal with this tomorrow", the Fox News host said, then switched gears to a video of a car crash in Arizona. "It's a manifestation of the media". But the source did not know whether those considerations dealt specifically with the potential firing of Mueller.

On Sunday, lawmakers praised Mr Mueller's impartiality and expressed confidence that he would be able to conduct a full, wide-ranging investigation.

The continued saga of Trump administration is creating havoc in the country.

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci dismissed the report on Thursday, calling it "totally irrelevant".
