Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election has been making headlines since it began in May 2017. Since it started, Mueller's investigation has seen the indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

While the American public remains largely in the dark on what Mueller knows and how he knows what he knows, there is a growing awareness that Mueller has uncovered something, given the arrests and seizures his investigation has led to. There's also a growing discussion around Mueller's job security. Can Trump fire Mueller, as Sarah Huckabee Sanders once claimed he could? Yes and no. Legal scholars contend there are workarounds President Trump could use if he wanted to remove Mueller from his post that wouldn't involve a direct firing.
