A top White House lawyer says President Donald Trump isn't thinking about firing special counsel Robert Mueller.

Attorney Ty Cobb told reporters Sunday Trump isn't "considering or discussing" letting Mueller go.

Cobb's statement came after Trump criticized Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

He said in a tweet over the weekend, "The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime." And he called the investigation a "WITCH HUNT!"
