Report: Trump tried to fire Mueller, backed off when White House counsel threatened to quit

Kris January 26, 2018 Blog, Blog Story Comments Off on Report: Trump tried to fire Mueller, backed off when White House counsel threatened to quit

White House attorney Don McGahn said he wouldn’t deliver the order and threatened to resign. The New York Times reported last night that President Trump had, for a moment, ordered the firing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller last June, weeks after he was given the task of heading the Russia investigation. The Times cited four people described as being familiar with the president’s request, said that Trump argued Mueller couldn’t be a fair judge because of a dispute over fees he owed at a Trump golf club in Virginia. He also believe there was a conflict because he worked for the same law firm that was representing Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. The White House has repeatedly denied the story and said that Trump was never considering firing Mueller, then mentioned ‘fake news’ and made a vague reference to crooked Hilary’s e-mails.
