One of the biggest rumors over the last month has been whether or not Donald Trump would fire Robert Mueller as special counsel to the Russian investigation. Despite multiple reports doubling down on the story, Sarah Huckabee Sanders appears fed up with having to talk about it.

Sanders on Mueller

Earlier this year, a special counsel was assigned by the United States Justice Department to investigate what role the Donald Trump campaign might have had in regards to Russia hacking the 2016 election. Despite the White House continuing to deny the allegations against them, former FBI Director Robert Mueller was put in place to lead the charge.

As former and current associates of the president have been indicted on various acts related to the investigation, including former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, Trump has done his best to deflect the controversy away from his campaign and administration. In recent weeks, several reports have noted that Trump has pondered whether or not to fire Mueller, though those close to him have advised against it due to the backlash it would likely cause. As seen during a Fox News interview on December 21, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is not happy that the rumors surrounding Mueller's potential firing have continued.

Joining Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was pressed on the current state of the Russian investigation as it pertains to Donald Trump and the status of Robert Mueller.

"For the 1000th time, we have no intention of firing Bob Mueller," Sanders said, as she appeared clearly annoyed.

"We're continuing to work closely and cooperate with him," Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on to say, before noting, "We look forward to seeing this hoax wrap up very soon." "We think it is just further evidence that the Democrats have no plan," Sanders said, while claiming the Democrats "have nothing to talk to about other than attacking this president." Sanders continued with her tirade, before mocking Democrats by saying she hopes they make a New Year's resolution to work with the president.

Moving forward

While Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the rest of the White House deny the reports of collusion with Russia, the investigation led by Robert Mueller is heating up. According to the most recent CNN poll, 56 percent of Americans disapprove of the president's handling of the investigation in question.
