(National Sentinel)Â Congressional Threat: Sen. Lindsey Graham has warned President Donald J. Trump of consequences should the commander-in-chief decide to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
There â€œwill be holy hell to payâ€ if Mueller is dismissed, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, toldÂ Fox News Monday.
The warning came after Mueller announced the first indictments in his months-long probe that began with alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Indicted: Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and two other aides, on chargesÂ not related to any collusion.
When asked to elaborate, Graham said,Â â€œI’ve heard nothing from the White House to suggest that the president’s going to try to replace Mr. Mueller. Zero evidence from anybody I’ve talked to. It would be wrong to do so unless there were cause.”
Sources toldÂ The Associated Press that the president is growing more concerned that Mueller’s investigation is probing Trump’s business interests.
â€œNo politician should ever be afraid of the American legal system working its will,â€ Graham told Fox News about many of his colleaguesâ€™ refusal to comment on the case.
Meanwhile, other lawmakers said that the ongoing investigation should not derail Congress’ and the president’s agenda, including pushing tax and health care reform.
â€œMost Americans do, and I donâ€™t see why we canâ€™t,”Â John N. Kennedy, R-La., said regarding Congress’ ability to multi-task.
