A report today predicts that Special counsel Robert Mueller will be fired by President Trump sometime in the next 100 days.
For many (the left) firing Robert Mueller would be an outrageous act, for others it can’t come soon enough.
It is common knowledge that President Donald Trump isn’t happy with the Russia investigation. At all. Trump has now referred to the special counsel investigation as a “witch hunt” at least a dozen times on Twitter.
The left thinks this sounds paranoid partisanship, but remember, CNN has pretty much confirmed this to be true.
Even after his nominee for FBI Director Christopher Wray declared on Wednesday that he did not see it as a witch hunt, Trump spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders stood by the President’s characterization. So what happened to the last guy who led the black hat and broom hunt into now confirmed Russian meddling in our election? Well that is, of course, the guy who Wray has been selected to replace. He was shown the front door.
Lets be clear, it was extraordinary for the President to fire the FBI director. In fact, James Comey was only the second-ever to be fired in U.S. history. The President undoubtedly had the authority to do it but despite coming under fire during the 2016 election, Comey was long viewed as a fixture, a sometimes controversial but even-handed, non-partisan and eminently qualified director who would never get fired.
Really? Silence is Consent has published numerous posts outlining how it was precisely Comey’s ineptness that let Trump to firing him. You can see those posts here.
Especially because of the ongoing Russia investigation. Except that is exactly what happened, and why it happened. The President admitted as much.
Since then the “witch hunt” investigation into the Trump campaign and alleged collusion with the Kremlin has taken a decidedly more perilous and personal turn for the President. And that’s exactly why we think it won’t be longer than 100 days before Trump pulls the trigger and “Comey” Mueller (no he can’t technically fire him but he can certainly order it and make it happen). After all, as the campaign and his first few months in office prove, Trump puts his family above anything else. As information continues to seep out about the work that Mueller is doing and the subpoenas start coming, we believe the President will be increasingly frustrated and the administration will undoubtedly continue to seek to undermine Mueller’s credibility. And lets be clear, by any objective standard Mueller is an unassailable, apolitical public servant.
That last part is utter nonsense Silence is Consent has posted several reports that reveal the reality that Mueller is not the shrine to impartiality he is painted as being. You can see those posts here.
It will be interesting to see if this prediction pans out. Trump has demonstrated he is not afraid to fire supposed sacred cows of government, so this just might come true.
