Sen. Lindsey Graham said President Donald Trump will not fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"I think we should all want to protect somebody like Mr. Mueller. I don't think President Trump is going to fire Mr. Mueller," the South Carolina Republican said Monday on ABC's "The View."

"The president can't fire Mueller. The only person that can fire Mueller is somebody at the Department of Justice, for a cause," Graham said. He noted that he has legislation that would allow judges to look at any firing of a special counsel to determine if the cause was appropriate.

"There is no reason to fire Mr. Mueller, let Mr. Mueller do his job and Mr. Trump, our president, should focus on his day job," he added. 

"The president said that he believes Mr. Mueller would treat him fairly, I also believe that."
