Ruddy: Mueller Appears 'Out to Get the President'

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 05:45

Then on Monday, Trump's friend Christopher Ruddy, a right-wing media executive, told "PBS NewsHour": "I think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel". His spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, would later tell reporters the president "has no intention" to dismiss Mueller. In a major story, The New York Times claimed that Trump was angered by reports that Mueller was close to fired FBI Director James Comey and entertained the idea of firing the special counsel. During the Watergate investigation President Richard Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, who was investigating a campaign of political spying and sabotage launched by a Nixon re-election committee.

Both Fleischer and Gingrich had previously vouched for the character and integrity of Mueller, who was appointed Federal Bureau of Investigation director by Bush and whose term was extended an extra two years by Democratic President Barack Obama. A highly regarded Justice Department careerist, he tapped Mueller - infuriating Trump - after the White House tried to pin the Comey firing on him. The Times reported Trump had been bothered by conservative news reports that Mueller was close to James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director whom Trump fired in May.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in separate testimony Tuesday that there was no "secret plan" to fire Mueller, nor was there cause. Trump has made no decision to act against Mueller and insists that he knows the risks of doing so but people close to the president say Trump is so volatile they can not be sure that he will not change his mind if he finds out anything to lead him to believe the investigation has been compromised, The New York Times said.

Trump can not directly dismiss Mueller. Gingrich said he is troubled by Democratic donations of Mueller's picks to help lead the probe.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein offered assurances to lawmakers on Tuesday that he is exclusively responsible for Mueller's fate since Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation.


Donald Trump is in way over his head, and his presidency looks like it is living on borrowed time.

Sessions, a major Trump campaign supporter, disqualified himself on the advice of the department's ethics office after he had failed to disclose several meetings he had with top Russians during his confirmation hearings.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter offered a similar message, tweeting, "Now that we know TRUMP IS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION, Sessions should take it back & fire Mueller". The person demanded anonymity to discuss strategy on the sensitive matter.

The Trump confidant told TheDC that this wording from Ruddy is clearly an attempt to convince the president that firing Mueller would be a poor decision. Ruddy said Tuesday that he stands by his comments.
