Mueller requests White House documents on Flynn

The White House

"That wouldn't be taking place if there was really no evidence, no evidentiary basis to move forward", Schiff said of the grand jury news. Grand jury proceedings are usually kept secret, and the newspaper called the move "a sign that his inquiry is growing in intensity and entering a new phase".

"The president has not even discussed that, the president has not even discussed firing Bob Mueller", Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said in an interview with ABC News when asked if the president would commit to not firing Mueller.

"I trust that he will be very careful to try not to go on a fishing expedition", Christie said on the subject of looking into Trump's finances. "There's always a temptation to do that". I hope that that's not what he does.

Christie said Trump should not have gotten involved in his son Don Jr.'s response when questions arose about his email correspondences that led to a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer, his brother-in-law and individuals with ties to the Kremlin.

Flynn resigned from the Trump administration in February after reports surfaced he had misled senior White House officials about his past conversations with Kremlin officials.

"This meeting was ill-advised", Christie said on CNN's "State of the Union".

"The White House will not be discussing any specific communications with the Special Counsel out of respect for the Special Counsel and his process".

"I think if the president should fire Robert Mueller abruptly, that would be crossing a big line, and I think you would see strong bipartisan action from the Senate, which might include our reinstating him or our hiring him to continue to conduct that investigation on behalf of Congress", Coons said.

But the governor warned about jumping to conclusions.

Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday sought to tamp down speculation that he is preparing for his own 2020 White House bid, characterizing the notion as "both laughable and absurd".

"Let him do his work", Christie said.

In interviews with potential witnesses in recent weeks, prosecutors and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have spent hours poring over the details of Flynn's business dealings with a Turkish-American businessman who worked a year ago with Flynn and his consulting business, the Flynn Intel Group.
