Syria: "All Options Still On The Table'' - White House"


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.

Nervous White House aides expressed new fears about the president's unpredictability in the face of the Cohen raid, which he viewed as an assault on a longtime defender and a sign that Mueller's probe into potential ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign was "going too far".
