Sen, Chris Coons, D-Del., said he believes it is likely that President Donald Trump will fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

Coons comments came Friday during an interview on CNN. The news network posted a video of the interview on one of its Twitter accounts.

"I'm very concerned, given that President Trump said publicly that it would be a red line if the special counsel started going after his personal finances or his family's business," Coons said.

"And we know that starting several weeks ago that's exactly what is being done in the special counsel investigation. They sent a subpoena to the Trump Organization. And just in the last two weeks the president has started attacking the special counsel by name in tweets.

"I think it is obvious he would like to fire him. Whether he will or not is the core question. I think the president's abrupt recent actions and how he dismissed the VA secretary, the secretary of state (and) other key members of his cabinet suggest that this is something he likely will do."

Coons noted a January report in The New York Times that Trump had ordered the firing of Mueller last June.

The newspaper had reported Trump backed down after White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign.
