In a recent interview given to the Fox News Channel, U.S. President Mr. Donald #trump raised his questions of doubt over #Robert Mueller’s neutrality. Mueller has been investigating Russian interference in last year’s U.S .elections that elected Mr. Trump as the U.S. President replacing Barrack Obama.

When asked whether he wants Mueller to step down from the inquiry, he said that his department views the Comey and Mueller relationship as bothersome”. However, last week a White House spokesperson clearly stated that even though Mr. Trump has the authority to sack Mr. Mueller he has no intention of doing so.

So far, President Mr. Trump and his administration have been tight-lipped about Mueller’s dismissal. The speculations are high but no official announcements have been made so far. Despite expressing his doubts over Mr. Mueller, Mr. Trump showed courtesy during the interview by calling him “an honorable man”. Now it to be hoped that the rest of the investigation can be concluded in an honorable manner. To do otherwise, would raise even further questions over Mr. Trump’s integrity and that might affect his popularity even more. #Obstruction Of Justice
