On ABC's "This Week" Sunday, host George Stephanopoulos asked Conway about the contradictions directly, even playing the White House Counselor a video of Jay Sekulow's denial that the president was involved and of Huckabee Sanders' words.

Conway slammed the report and said Pence has no intention of running. Thom Tillis on This Week Sunday if he agrees with the president's recent statement that "the entire Russian Federation story" is "a fabrication, a witch hunt and a hoax". "He told the people there and around the country that those who are pushing this phony fabricated Russian Federation investigation are cheating you, the voters, out of what you clearly said you want".

Mueller was appointed in May to oversee the probe into Russia's attempts to interfere with the 2016 election, including whether the Trump campaign colluded with the country.

A Trump friend said in June that he was considering doing so, and the president admitted he fired former FBI Director James Comey in part based on his dissatisfaction with the investigation.

Conway echoed Pence's stance and reassured Stephanopoulous that Trump will run again in 2020.

Chris Coons, Delaware Democrat, introduced last week legislation to allow a three-judge panel to determine whether there is "good cause" to fire a special counsel amid speculation that the White House may try to jettison Mr. Mueller. "There's no question that it is", he said.

Still, Tillis made clear the measure goes beyond Trump and Mueller.

"Our effort here is just to take that off the table, any sort of precipitous removal, but we don't have any specific evidence to suggest that the president is going to do that", he said.

"It is in everyone's best interest for Bob Mueller to be able to carry forward this investigation to its conclusion, so that we can get back to working in a responsible and bipartisan way".

Later in the interview, Stephanopoulos, visibly frustrated, cut straight to the point: "Bottom line, Kellyanne, does the president commit to not firing Robert Mueller?".
