Mark Warner warns Trump about firing MuellerThe top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee warned President Trump on Wednesday that any effort to dismiss Russia special counsel Robert Mueller would amount to "a gross abuse of power."

Speaking from the Senate floor, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner noted there has been "a growing chorus of irresponsible and reckless voices" from the Republican House to conservative media outlets who have called on the president to shutter Mueller's inquiry into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump associates.

"I believe it is up to every member of this institution, Republican or Democrat, to make a clear and unambiguous statement that any attempt by this president to remove special counsel Mueller from his position or to pardon key witnesses in an effort to shield them from accountability... would be a gross abuse of power," Warner said. "These are red lines, and we simply cannot allow them to be crossed."
