MSNBC Analyst Makes Breathtaking Claim: POTUS Trump Plotting PROSECUTION of Robert Mueller
Is President Trump plotting to prosecute Robert Mueller?
MSNBC political analyst, Howard Fineman claims the President is consulting friends about the possibility of asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to prosecute the special counsel.
President Donald Trump has been talking to his friends about possibly asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to prosecute Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Russia probe, and his team, NBC News reported.
The revelation appears in a news analysis piece written by Howard Fineman, an NBCNews.com contributor and an analyst for MSNBC.
Fineman quotes an unnamed Trump advisor as saying: “Here’s how it would work: ‘We’re sorry, Mr. Mueller, you won’t be able to run the federal grand jury today because he has to go testify to another federal grand jury.'”
On the heels of Fineman’s claim is a New York Times piece reporting President Trump demanded special counsel Robert Mueller be fired in June, yet changed course after the White House counsel threatened to quit if the order was carried out.
The report comes amid Trump telling the press that he is eager to sit down with Mueller in the next two-to-three weeks.
“I’m looking forward to it,” President Trump said.
“I would do it under oath,” he added.
This isn’t the first time reports about Trump firing Mueller have sprung up.
In December, Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) sat down with KQED Newsroom and claimed President Trump was soon going to fire Mueller.
The California lawmaker then told KQED Newsroom that, “The rumor on the Hill when I left yesterday was that the president was going to make a significant speech at the end of next week. And on December 22nd, when we are out of D.C., he was going to fire…Robert Mueller.”
Of course, the Congresswoman’s claim was false.
Mueller’s probe is facing extraordinary headwinds following reports the FISA memo is set to be a public relations nightmare.
Sara Carter claims the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
