President Donald Trump might be able to get rid of special counsel Robert Mueller — but he can’t kill off the Russia probe.

Trump aides and associates have long warned him that ousting Mueller would have messy political consequences. But it’s also unlikely to solve many of his legal worries. A leaked list of questions Mueller wants to ask Trump only underscores that, even if the special counsel is gone, his investigation — or offshoots of it — will live on.

so better not remove Mueller. It's the wise thing to do and apparently Trump still listens to reason

I think from a certain point of view it would be a bad idea for Trump to fire Mueller if only because there would
no longer be a controlling authority. It's kind of like the coke wars in the 80's. After Escobar got nailed it became the wild west, and there was no predicting what was going to happen. If Trump causes Mueller to be fired the investigation may metastasize, opening the door to any number of new prosecutorial "cartels", and resultant headaches for the presidency.
