Donald Trump 'wanted to fire Robert Mueller but backed off' - report

So by mid-June, you know, a month after Mueller was put in the job, there were a lot of questions in the public about possible obstruction of justice. But soon it will probably be the President himself who will have to explain to Mr. Mueller how his actions don't add up to obstruction of justice.

Yes, usually to the attorney general.

In the wake of Watergate and 1973's Saturday Night Massacre, Congress took steps to stop future Presidents from going after people who were appointed to investigate them. The president also said Mueller could not be impartial because he had most recently worked for a law firm that previously represented the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner. "He did not even a little bit". His comments came during a trip to Davos, Switzerland, where he was attending the World Economic Forum, a gathering of world leaders and global business executives.

While Trump often directed that anger at Sessions, by June he turned his ire to Mueller and wanted the special counsel fired, a source confirmed to CNN after it was first reported in The New York Times.


Trump has dismissed the report as "fake news."

Trump had accused Mueller of three conflicts of interest that he argued disqualified him from running the probe, The Times said.

Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz retweeted a post from HuffPost reporter Matt Fuller in which Fox commentator Sean Hannity throws the Times' sourcing for the report into question.

CHRISTOPHER RUDDY: Well, I think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. If and when Mueller is fired, a nationwide protest called "Nobody is above the law" is already set to happen.


Yes, but without much legislative progress. The reports on Thursday evening prompted a renewed warning from Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee. Firing a special prosecutor - as Richard Nixon found out - is one way to get there. "Kelly, McGahn, and Wray [quitting] would have had grave consequences for the special counsel's investigation".

He could sue to challenge the grounds for his dismissal. He need only talk with one of his predecessors as White House counsel, John Dean, about the consequences of getting sucked into a president's efforts to obstruct justice.

The U.S. and Pakistan disagreed over the target of a U.S. drone strike in northwestern Pakistan taken on Wednesday, the Times.

Since removing a president is a political process, not a legal one, anything can be grounds for impeachment if enough members of Congress say it is. I mean, I've been reading about it from you people.
