Ken Starr, who prosecuted President Bill Clinton in the Monica Lewinsky case, said on ABC's "This Week," when asked about reports Trump sought to have Mueller fired, despite denials:

"You’re now talking about something called lying to the American people, and I think that is something that Bob Mueller should look at."

"Perjury panic" in the West Wing, Axios' Jonathan Swan:

  • "I can't overstate the level of anxiety among sources close to Trump after the president told the NYT's Maggie Haberman last week he was willing and eager to submit himself to a live interview under oath with Special Counsel Robert Mueller."
  • N.Y. Times columnist David Leonhardt posts a 10-point "Article of Impeachment Against Donald J. Trump."
