Is Robert Mueller Trumps Next Victim???

And the Trumpgate pot Thickens and 45 considers Firing Robert Mueller!!!

President Donald Trump could be weighing the termination of special counsel Robert Mueller from his oversight of the federal Russia investigation, Christopher Ruddy, CEO of the conservative Newsmax Media and a friend of President Trump, told PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff on Monday.

“I think he’s considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. I think he’s weighing that option,” Ruddy said when asked by Woodruff whether the president was prepared to let the special counsel pursue the Russia investigation. “I think it’s pretty clear by what one of his lawyers said on television recently.”

“I personally think it would be a very significant mistake,” Ruddy added.

The comments come the day before Attorney General Jeff Sessions is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the same panel before which former FBI director James Comey appeared last week.

Can Donald Trump really Fire Mueller?

Technically, it’s up to the attorney general to decide what to do with the special counsel.
“The attorney general is the one who has to fire him,” said CNN’s senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin on “Anderson Cooper 360.” “(Attorney General) Jeff Sessions is recused here, so it would be up to (Deputy Attorney General) Rod Rosenstein, who was the person who just appointed Bob Mueller a couple of weeks ago.”
Sessions previously recused himself from any involvement in the Russia investigation due to his role as a prominent campaign adviser and surrogate.
So that would leave such a decision to Rosenstein, who just appointed Mueller on May 17 to oversee the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

 

Why Would He do such a Dumb Thing?

Mueller has been widely respected by many in Washington from both sides of the aisle, but not everyone is a fan.
Since being appointed special counsel in May, Mueller has built a team of formidable legal minds who’ve worked on everything from Watergate to Enron.
He brought on three partners from his former law firm, WilmerHale, with significant litigating experience in high-stakes cases.
I am just in awe how the Republican leadership continues to allow Donald Trump to remain in office and how quiet the Democratic and Independent leadership is.  I am bout through with all parties at this point Chile!

    The Republicans are mute because as we know the Russians also Hack the RNC and I believe the Russians are holding their email over the Republicans heads to Go along with the Trump/Russian plan or be exposed through WikiLeaks like the DNC/Hillary. All part of Putin devices to disrupt the United States democracy.
