MIAMI, FL -- Senator Marco Rubio believes President Trump will not dump Robert Mueller as the special counsel leading the investigation into Russia's 2016 election meddling.

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union, the Florida Republican said, "It's not going to happen."

Rubio says a "full and credible investigation would benefit Trump and his investigation."

The senator's comments follow Trump commenting on Twitter about the Russia investigation, calling it a "witch hunt."

Rubio affirmed his confidence in Mueller and his ability to lead the investigation, saying he has a record of serving our country.
