President Trump on Sunday said he has no plans to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, despite reports of friction between Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe and Trump’s allies. “No, I’m not,” Trump said outside the White House when asked if he was considering firing Mueller. He went on to say his “people” were “very upset” about Mueller’s decision to obtain thousands of emails from his transition team. “I can’t imagine there’s anything on [the emails], frankly, because as we said, there’s no collusion. No collusion whatsoever,” he told reporters. “But a lot of lawyers thought that was pretty sad.” A lawyer for Trump’s transition team had lashed out at Mueller earlier in the day for his “unauthorized” move to obtain the emails, which were accessed through the General Services Administration rather than through the transition team directly. A spokesman for Mueller has maintained that the emails were obtained in an “appropriate” manner.
