The Senate Judiciary Committee delayed action on a bill to protect the job of special counsel Robert Mueller, The Hill is reporting.

The proposed legislation is now expected to be voted on by the committee next week, although several committee members have expressed concerns about it, according to the website.

"We will hold this bill over today at the request of several members of the committee," Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said on Thursday.

If it does clear the committee, it still faces a tough road getting to the Senate floor for a vote.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said legislation to keep President Donald Trump from firing Mueller is "not necessary."

"There is no indication that Mueller is going to be fired," he told Neil Cavuto in an interview on Fox News. "Just as a practical matter, even if we passed it, why would he sign it."
