McConnell says he doesn't think there is "any chance" the president will end Mueller investigation [View all]

Source: CBS News

Attorney General Matthew Whitaker took charge of the investigation on Wednesday. Many Democrats and some Republicans raised concerns after Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned under pressure, and oversight of the probe passed from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be hindered in conducting his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"The President has said on multiple occasions the Mueller investigation should be completed. He wish it would happen sooner. But I don't think there's any chance that the Mueller investigation will not be allowed to finish," McConnell told WVLK in an interview Thursday.

President Trump had repeatedly unloaded on Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, which allowed Rosenstein to appoint Mueller. The president promptly ousted Sessions after the midterm elections on Tuesday.

"It's pretty clear the president wanted to make a change and it occurred after the election. We'll see who he sends up. But I think any president should be given a lot of latitude on picking his own team," McConnell said. He added that he was sure whomever Mr. Trump nominated to replace Sessions would be "somebody who will be able to get confirmed."
