Sanders: 'Not Aware' Of Plans To Fire Mueller Or Remove Rosenstein

The source declined to elaborate on Trump's thinking or to speculate on other possible personnel moves, but added that Trump had been focused nearly exclusively on Syria during the past week.

As his lawyers went to court in NY on Friday to try to block prosecutors from reading files that were seized from the personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, this week, Trump found himself increasingly isolated in mounting a response. Trump has denied these reports, tweeting that he "would have fired him" already if they were true. Rosenstein appointed Mueller and oversees Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign.

Riley issued their Q1 2018 earnings per share estimates for Hecla Mining in a note issued to investors on Thursday, April 12th. The company reported $0.03 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $0.04 by $0.01.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein expressed acceptance over the possibility of being fired, according to NBC News. He tweeted that Rosenstein is the "most conflicted of all" because he had a role in firing FBI Director James Comey and the surveillance order of Trump campaign official Carter Page - both of which are true. "If he's upset with Rod Rosenstein because Rod Rosenstein is not producing documents to Congress - that's a legitimate thing to be upset about". "Does [Trump] have the power to get rid of Rod Rosenstein? But we do have some real concerns with some of the activities and some of the scope that the investigation has gone", The Hill quoted Sanders as saying in an interview on Sunday night.

Trump has reportedly tried to fire Mueller in the past and has been considering firing Rosenstein, The Hill reported.
