The facts are in and you're an idiot. You continue to vote in these 'law and order' assholes and you've managed to turn the greatest country on the planet into a zoo. While the politicians, pharmaceutical CEOs, Big Oil and Wall Street bankers laugh all the way to their offshore bank accounts.

Trump recommends replacement for Mueller

By Christopher R Rice

Donald Trump is considering "terminating" special counsel Robert Mueller and replacing him with a Russian circus bear. Have no fear fellow citizens, Trump is making America great again.

Under current Justice Department regulations, such a firing would have to be done by Attorney General Jeff Sessions' deputy, Rod Rosenstein, not the president— though those regulations could theoretically be set aside.

The White House tells Judy Woodruff of "PBS NewsHour": "He's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. He's weighing that option."

Mueller is leading the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and potential ties between Moscow and Trump's presidential campaign. Sessions has recused himself from the investigation.

Does Trump really think that by firing Yates, Comey, Mueller his Russia problems will go away? Seriously? Oh well, Mueller is gone so let's just forget about the investigation. In your dreams fat boy! No matter how many people you fire, the truth will come out.

Trickydick is back. Saturday Night Massacre all over again. Anybody who was investigating Russia/Trump has been fired by Trump. Bharara, Yates, and now Comey. This has not happened since Nixon. This cannot continue. Everyone needs to rise up and stop this travesty of truth. That swamp stinks more than ever. Trump is worst than Nixon.

Trump trying to cover his tracks. The sad thing is most folks don't really see whats going on. This is more evidence that Trump wants to have his ongoing investigations in the hands of Jeff Sessions. Trump firing Comey shows how frightened the Admin. is over the Russian investigation. I call on the true patriots in the FBI to release, by leak, all evidence related to President Trump's collusion with the Russians.

Trump's action is a reversal from his previous bromance with Comey. Last October, Trump said "it took guts" for Comey to renew the Clinton email investigation. On January 22, a smiling Trump hugged Comey during a White House meeting and said with a chuckle, "He's become more famous than me." (What could be higher praise from Trump?) On April 12, Trump said he had confidence in Comey. On May 3, White House press secretary Sean Spicer reiterated that Comey had Trump's support.

Mueller has support by both Democrats and Republicans.

From TheHill: Prominent conservatives including former Speaker Newt Gingrich fired off salvos at special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday, insisting that the man leading the probe into allegations of links between the Trump campaign and Russia is out to damage the president.

Gingrich, a leading Trump ally, took to Twitter on Monday morning to assail Mueller. He tweeted that "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair."

Despite criticism on social media from users who highlighted Gingrich's praise for Mueller upon his initial appointment last month - he had then called the appointment "superb" - Gingrich doubled down on his earlier criticisms in a phone interview with The Hill.

The former Speaker said that he was "urging the American people to understand that this is a rigged game intended to bring down the Trump administration."

Gingrich emphasized that he was not calling for any specific action against Mueller from Trump's Justice Department. But others have not been so reticent.

Jay Sekulow, a new member of the president's personal legal team, refused to rule out Mueller's firing by Trump in a TV interview on Sunday.

"The president has the authority to take action," Sekulow told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week."

Peter Wehner, a Republican critic of Trump who served in the administrations of Presidents Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, described the idea of firing Mueller as "a very Trumpian tactic."

He added that it would "blow up politically. It would be a political bombshell and it would be close to an admission of guilt."

Wehner drew a comparison to the period when he served in President George W. Bush's White House while special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald investigated how Valerie Plame's status as a CIA operative came to be leaked to reporters.

"Investigations of that kind are not pleasant but there was never any thought from anyone that I'm aware of, of firing Patrick Fitzgerald," Wehner said. "If we had, there would have been political hell to pay - and there should have been."

Independent experts also warned of the dangers of a move against Mueller.

Any such tactic "blurs the line between politics and law, and that is a risky thing," said Professor
Michael Gerhardt, an expert in constitutional law at the University of North Carolina School of Law.
"It challenges boundaries and it seriously challenges long-standing norms. It may well involve stepping into inappropriate behavior."

Those kinds of arguments get no traction with prominent Trump partisans, including commentator Ann Coulter, who on Monday called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Mueller.

Coulter was fiercely unimpressed by the argument that a firing would be outside the norms of political behavior.

"Republicans are so stupid," she told The Hill via email. "They bow and scrape in response to any withering look from a Democrat."

In the event that Sessions did indeed fire Mueller, Coulter added, "What's anyone going to do? Demand Trump's impeachment? Yawn."

The column was retweeted in turn by Coulter and radio talk show host Laura Ingraham. There has been intermittent speculation that Ingraham might join the White House communications team.

Mueller was appointed last month to look into allegations of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia. His appointment came amid uproar over Trump's firing of FBI director James Comey. Mueller was Comey's predecessor as the head of the bureau.
