Sen. John Kennedy: Ignore Trump's Tweets on Mueller

Sen. John Kennedy: Ignore Trump's Tweets on Mueller

President Donald Trump's acerbic tweets about special counsel Robert Muller's probe into Russia's election meddling should be ignored, says Sen. John Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican.

"I think you have to divorce the president's words from his actions," Kennedy said Tuesday on CNN's "New Day."

"Clearly, he likes to tweet, and I don't mean this as a criticism. I think the president grows anxious when he has an unexpressed thought and he likes to say everything that's on his mind."

Over the weekend, Trump let loose on the Mueller probe in a series of angry missives on Twitter:

That's led some pundits in Washington to fear that Trump is inching closer to firing Mueller. Kennedy says he doubts that's going to happen and "all hell would break loose" if it did.

"I think we ought to let Mr. Mueller finish his investigation. I don't think the president is going to fire him. The president's lawyers said Sunday night they have no intention of firing him," Kennedy said.

"I think Mr. Mueller will be allowed to complete his investigation and hopefully, he'll report to the American people and say here is what I found, here is what I concluded."
