President Trump reportedly ordered that special counsel Robert Mueller be fired in June however backed off from the controversial move when the White House chief counsel threatened to resign, it was revealed on Thursday.
The episode has come to the attention of Mueller as he interviews numerous White House officials through the probe into whether or not Trump obstructed justice in the Russia inquiry, according to The New York Times.
The revelation came Thursday, one day after Trump battered back numerous allegations concerning the probe circulating within the media.
“Here is the story: There has been no collusion whatsoever. There is no obstruction whatsoever,” Trump informed reporters on Wednesday.
The Times reported that White House counsel Don McGahn refused to ask the Justice Department to dismiss Mueller — threatening instead to quit if the order had been carried out.
Given the paper that’s reporting this, I am hesitant to believe this. Not a year ago that would not have been the case. Sad.
I canceled the adds by google and they wanted to know why, but never gave a place to tell them. All I had was a bunch of BS things. Well, the answer is: It is fake news and subject! To get rid of Trump would be to give up American jobs and tax breaks! Even the terrible, traitorous Democrats know better than that! Well, some crazies like Wilson, Pelosie, Schummer and that old black women from LA probably would want that. None of them earn their money anyway!
