Is Trump buddy Ruddy dropping the idea down the well to see if there is a splash?
Donald Trump is considering dismissing the special counsel assigned to the Russia investigation, a confidant said on Monday.
Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy told PBS Newshour that Trump is “considering perhaps terminating” Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who was appointed to run the investigation into Russian influence on the campaign by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on May 17.
Asked later if Trump is really considering firing Mueller, Ruddy said: “Yes.”
A White House official told me that “Chris was speaking for himself and did not speak to the president.”
If Trump is going to do it, he should do it on Saturday Night. Everyone loves historical continuity.
