No More Firings

Jun 13, 2017

Republican leaders in the House and Senate are trying to tamp down calls for President Trump to fire special counsel Robert Mueller Mueller has fallen under suspicion because he is a close friend of James Comey. Mueller’s team has hired four people who’ve contributed to Democratic presidential campaigns and organizations. On Monday, former Speaker of the House tweeted, “Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. “Time to rethink.” But Lindsey Graham, Senator from South Carolina, said, “It would be a disaster. There’s no reason to fire Mueller. What’s he done to be fired?” Senator Susan Collins of Maine said that firing Mueller would “certainly be an extraordinarily unwise move.” Firing Mueller would ignite a new round of media and Democratic frenzy and raise suspicions that the president was hiding something.
