White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday said Trump believes he has the authority to oust Mueller.

While the Wednesday dinner has been planned for several days, it will offer lawmakers an opportunity to gain insight into Trump's thinking on Mueller, Politico reported. 

Many lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have warned against the prospect of firing Mueller. McConnell said Tuesday that he did not expect the president to oust the special counsel.

"I’m not going to answer the hypothetical because I don’t think he’s going to be removed," he said. "I think he’ll be allowed to finish his job."
