No "final decision" yet on Syria response, White House says

No

The president has the authority to fire the special counsel appointed to look into ties between his campaign and Russian Federation, the White House asserted on Tuesday.

But since then, Mr. Trump has backed off slightly, and rebuffed claims that he has given away the timetable on a Syria response - something he accused former President Barack Obama of doing. Robert Mueller, a special counsel was appointed in May past year.

Earlier this week, a missile launch on Syria seemed imminent.

In tweets on Wednesday morning, Trump attacked what he characterized as a never-ending investigation into false allegations that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation to undermine the US's 2016 election.

White House lawyers are trying to dissuade US President Donald Trump from seeking to get rid of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as Trump weighs options after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided his personal attorney's office and home, two US officials said on Tuesday.

Trump also tweeted: "No Collusion or Obstruction (other than I fight back), so now they do the Unthinkable, and RAID a lawyers office for information!"

The Trump administration will try to convince a federal appeals court that the president's executive order threatening to cut funding from states and cities that limit cooperation with USA immigration authorities was narrow and legal.

The OSCE monitors will present their observations at a news conference on Thursday. Seven candidates ran, but critics questioned whether they were actual opponents.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, for his half, tried to douse speculation Trump could fireside Rosenstein or Mueller, saying: "I've no trigger to think about that that's going to happen".

Following the raid on Trump's longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, he channeled an unprecedented level of anger toward the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice officials, and is reportedly considering firing deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.

Kelly, the current chief of staff whose influence over the president has waned for months, appeared beaten down and less hands-on, according to two White House officials. Cohen has steadfastly denied wrongdoing in his $130,000 payment to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and has publicly defended Trump, nevertheless he has confided in associates that he is terrified of being a fall man, in accordance with a person accustomed to his contemplating nevertheless not licensed to speak publicly about private discussions. Bipartisan legislation has been introduced to protect Mr. Mueller, with senators urging the president to let it go forward "without impediment".

As so often in these turbulent days here in Washington, Trump's tweets serve to confuse the issue.

The White House insisted Trump was centered on the response to Syria following the nation's apparent use of chemical weapons on civilians over the weekend, killing better than 40 people.

Asked on Monday after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids if he would fire Mueller, Trump replied, "We'll see what happens". An administration official said the White House would largely defer to outside surrogates to push back on Comey, but there was concern as to how the director's interviews could rile up the president.
