"You can't make an agreement one month and say, 'OK, we really didn't mean it, '" McConnell said of a move to cut spending. Such procedural steps include committee reporting or discharging a committee from a bill's consideration, and such procedural requirements include the two-day availability of a committee report.

"We do not believe that he should be fired". This leaves the door wide open for Trump to do as he pleases with Mueller, and shows how spineless and cowardly Mitch McConnell truly is. I don't think the president's going to do that.

McConnell shut down the bipartisan bill in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday, saying it would not receive any time on the Senate floor.

Mitch McConnell has once again proven that he is a threat to democracy, as he has unilaterally decided that a bipartisan bill created to protect special prosecutor Robert Mueller from being fired by Donald Trump would never see the light of day in the Senate.

Grassley has said he's undecided on whether to support the bill himself, based on the question of whether it's constitutional.

Should it pass, Mueller would receive an "expedited judicial review" within 10 days of being fired to determine if it was for a "good cause".

He continued: "I'm focused on making sure we get to a mark-up on the Judiciary Committee next Thursday and that we're in a place for it to get passed the Judiciary Committee". "The reality here is that there are stronger and stronger signals that this President -who has acted in an abrupt and unconventional and untraditional and unwise way - may very well do exactly the same against Bob Mueller and it would be wise for us to take it up and consider it". Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said she expected to receive a copy of that amendment on Wednesday.
