Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he sees no need to act to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation -- and declined to say how Republicans would react if President Donald Trump tries to fire Mueller.

"My understanding is there’s no effort under way to undermine or remove the special counsel," McConnell of Kentucky told reporters. "Therefore I don’t see any need to bring up legislation to protect someone who appears to need no protection."
