Trump Dangerously Close To Pulling Pin On Political Grenade And Firing Robert Mueller

Donald Trump once again railed against Special Counsel Robert Mueller in response to the FBI raid of the of his personal attorney Micheal Cohen Monday in New York City, calling the investigation in Russian collusion a “witch hunt.”

Cohen was the attorney who paid Trump alleged mistress, porn actress Stormy Daniels, $130,000 in 2016. Both Trump and Cohen maintain that the then-presidential candidate did not know about the payment. And Trump continues to deny the affair altogether.

However, Cohen has yet to explain why he decided to pay Daniels out of his own pocket.

During an early morning Twitter tantrum, Trump tweeted:

“Attorney-client privilege is dead!”

He then claimed, “they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys,” Trump called it  “a disgraceful situation” and “a total witch hunt. I’ve been saying it for a long time.”

During an on-camera discussion with his military advisers on Monday, regarding the Syrian gas attack and other national defense issues, Trump labeled the Mueller investigation “an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”

When asked if he was considering firing Mueller, Trump replied, “we’ll see what happens,” and “many people have said you should fire him.”

In the past, Republicans like Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who currently sits on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary that oversees the Deparment of Justice, warned Trump against dismissing Mueller.

“Don’t create a constitutional crisis. Congress cannot preempt such a firing. Our only constitutional remedy is after the fact, through impeachment. No one wants that outcome. Mr. President, please don’t go there,” Flake tweeted.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C), who’s also on the Judiciary Committee, was blunter in his assessment, stating in March that Trump could “probably” be impeached for firing Mueller.

“I think what the president will have done is stopped an investigation in whether or not his campaign colluded with the Russians, what effect the Russians had on the 2016 campaign. I can’t see it being anything other than a corrupt purpose,” Graham explained. 

Will Trump decide to roll the dice and pull the pin just to end in an attempt to kill the investigation? It’s certainly possible given Trump’s history of ignoring his advisers and doing what his “gut” tells him to do. And what impact would this action have on the mid-term elections in November? It’s very feasible that Trump could not only blow up his political career but also the Republican party’s hold on power throughout the country.
