But Ruddy outlined what seems to be growing talk from Trump circles raising concerns about Mueller.

"In light of reports regarding Mr. Comey's recent testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, it is important that I have an opportunity to address these matters in the appropriate forum", Sessions wrote.

Some in support of Trump are concerned that an investigation by political opponents of the president, with the power of the DOJ behind them, could result in criticisms - or worse - over semantics and the like. He added, "I think the best vindication for the president is to let this investigation to go on independently and thoroughly". "If you read "The Art of the Deal", he always says keep all your options open. No", Ruddy told her. "I think it'd be a disaster". I do believe he has the legal right to do it. If there were good cause, I would consider it. Ruddy said Tuesday that he stands by his comments.

Mr Gingrich's criticism could be a harbinger of a drive by Trump surrogates to undermine Mr Mueller's authority and, perhaps, lay the groundwork to question his ultimate prosecutorial decisions or seek his removal.

Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who appointed Mueller and continues to oversee the investigation, promised lawmakers he would not permit Mueller to be dismissed without legitimate reason.

Mueller was named special counsel to lead the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May.

On CNN to anchor Chris Cuomo: "I think it is a consideration the president has had, because Mueller is illegitimate as special counsel".

Mr Ruddy has also accused Mr Mueller of a conflict of interest, revealing the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director was a candidate to replace Mr Comey and was interviewed by Mr Trump only days before he was appointed as special independent counsel.

The second case is that Mueller is unfit to investigate anything related to Comey because the two have a personal relationship and a professional respect for each other.

Asked on the American ABC's This Week program whether the President would promise not to interfere or order Mr Mueller's sacking, Mr Sekulow said: "Look, the President of the United States, as we all know, is a unitary executive". We get the latest from NBC News White House Correspondent Kristen Welker.

"For Mr. Trump, the line between whim and will is always thin".

The White House forcefully disputed Ruddy's claims, saying he speaks for himself, not the president. Ruddy acknowledging that, but doubling down.
