Dem senator: GOP should tell Trump obstructing Mueller probe is ‘unacceptable’ By Mallory Shelbourne - 03/19/18 09:21 AM EDT Sen. Chris Coons: "It's hard to know exactly what direction the President is taking" when it comes to Special Counsel Robert Mueller https://t.co/mIOnQw2uot pic.twitter.com/jwM3dvjwn0 During an interview with CNN’s “New Day,” Coons said the president’s recent barrage of attacks against the special counsel is “typical of a pattern we’ve seen” with Trump. “It’s hard to know exactly what direction the president is taking,” Coons told CNN. “I think this is a time when all of us — Republicans and Democrats — need to stand up and make it clear that we’re committed to the rule of law and for the president or his lawyer to, even in jest, talk about firing Mueller or ending his investigation, is unacceptable,” he added. Coons’s comments come after Trump unleashed a series of tweets over the weekend attacking Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe James Brien Comey Trump's lawyer discussed idea of him pardoning Flynn, Manafort: report The Hill's 12:30 Report CNN to host town hall with Comey next month MORE .
