Who’s not worried about President Donald trump firing Robert Mueller? (Except, perhaps, trump and Mueller themselves.)
As possible targets of the investigation expanded, and the President’s attacks. The raids of the home and trump lawyer Michael Cowen cut close to President of the business and personal interests, and trump responded by saying that he views the actions as “an attack on our country, in the true sense.”
With regard to potentially counter the said “attack”, – said the Chairman of the Senate chak grassli, a Republican, said it would be “suicide” for trump to fire Mueller. Senator Lindsey Graham, another Republican, said again that this will be the “beginning of the end of his presidency.” At the same time, Democrats are prepared ways of responding, which ensure the investigation is ongoing, with or without Muller.
Several in trump’s inner circle think of ousting Mueller, attorney General Jeff sessins, or the Deputy General Prosecutor rod Rosenstein will help advance the agenda of the President. More on trump’s orbit can rule out these possibilities.
Trump is angry, Yes. It is also increasingly lonely – go out on your own these days against the Republicans in Congress, his own advisers internal and external policy, and of course, its own justice.

“We all pressed the button? Is that in the vault somewhere?” Senior Deb Fischer, R – Neb., continued. It does not appear to be mealy-mouthed Zuckerberg’s response.
“If you do not choose, You do not call and text?” Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., asked, adding that “this practice is done with minors?”
“I don’t know,” replied Zuckerberg.
“There were reports that Facebook can track the user activity on the Internet even after the user left the Facebook platform,” wicker went on.
Zuckerberg said politely that he would have to check and get back to it, but it highlights the degree is unknown.
In General, the day reinforced how immeasurably large companies today, and how few questions he had to answer before.

While young Americans are consistently at lower levels than other age groups in American elections, the ever-elusive millennial vote may be a major factor in the upcoming midterm elections in 2018.
According to a new survey conducted by the Harvard University Institute of politics, 37 percent of potential voters aged 18 to 29 say they “definitely will vote” in the midterm elections this year, significantly ahead of the millennial turnout in the last two midterm elections.
