Rhode Island Senate Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse told Politico that the investigation is tightening around the Trump family. Whitehouse and other Senators are aiming to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from the President's wrath. There are currently two bipartisan bills being debated in the U.S. Senate. According to Newsweek:

"As the noose starts to close around the White House and around the Trump family, a very different set of behaviors could emerge,” Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island) told Politico on Tuesday. "It’s under those kinds of pressures that the special counsel needs to be able to continue its work.”

He was talking about two bipartisan bills introduced last week that could block Trump from firing Mueller. One bill would requires a review of any termination by three federal judges, and the other would require top officials at the Department of Justice to go before a panel of judges to explain any decision to fire Mueller.
