Dem Congresswoman: Rumors On The Hill Are Swirling That Trump Will FIRE Mueller Next Week
All the special snowflakes are going to need a lot more safe spaces, coloring books, and cute puppies when Robert Mueller gets canned!
On Friday, Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) sat down with KQED Newsroom to lament the Republicans’ so-called effort to “shut down,” Capitol Hill’s Russia investigation.
When asked why there are no witnesses scheduled for the probe in January, Speier replied, “well, we can read between the lines, I think there is a rush to try and shut this committee investigation down.”
“This week was a great example, three interviews simultaneously, one of the off the Hill with someone who comes to Washington frequently but wanted to do it now and so we were actually off the Hill doing the interview, had to race back to vote….this is a circus at this point,” added Speier.
Speier then went on to claim President Trump wants all Russia investigations to be “shut down.”
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.”
Mueller’s probe is facing extraordinary public relations headwinds following reports the special counsel’s office removed an FBI agent who expressed anti-Trump views.
This week, Fox News published a portion of the approximately 10,000 texts messages sent between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page. Among the messages is an exchange revealing Strzok and Page discussed an ‘insurance policy,’ against a Trump presidency. Read more at TGP.
