Trump Is Considering Firing Special Counsel Mueller, Friend Says


Christopher Ruddy, the founder of Newsmax Media and close friend of President Trump, told PBS News Hour Monday that he believes the president is “considering perhaps terminating” special counsel Robert Mueller, the man charged with investigating Russian interference in the U.S. election and possible collusion with Trump’s campaign.

The comments come amid increasing frustration at the White House and among Trump supporters that the investigation will overshadow the president’s agenda for months to come — a prospect that has Democrats are hoping for.

When reached by Fox News after the remarks, Ruddy said, “while I am not claiming the president said it to me, I am confident of my sourcing. He is definitely considering it as an option.”

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said Ruddy “never spoke to the president regarding this issue. With respect to this subject, only the president of his attorneys are authorized to comment.” Read more at Fox News.




  1. “he believes the president is “considering perhaps terminating””
    Well, that makes it definite, and worthy of a fake news story.

  2. It didn’t make much sense that Mueller who is a close associate of Comey and an Obama man should be appointed as special counsel in the first place. Trump needs to hurry up and drain the swamp.

  3. Mueller has to go. He’s a good friend of Comey and hired lawyers from the Clinton Foundation for the Russian investigation. He should also fire Rod Rosenstein, a CIA agent, who appointed Mueller with the consent of the CIA.
