WATCH: Corker 'can't imagine' Trump would fire Mueller

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) on Tuesday said he does not believe reports that President Trump is considering firing special counsel Robert Muller.

"I can't imagine there’s any truth or veracity to the president thinking that he would consider firing Mueller. ... Hopefully the question being asked is a question about something that cannot possibly be reality," Corker said Tuesday afternoon.


Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller, a former FBI director, to lead an independent investigation into Russia's election interference.
