Enraged Trump Attempted To Fire Muller After Learning Special Counsel Is Comey’s Friend: NYT

An enraged President Trump attempted to fire Robert Mueller after he learned the special counsel is friends with fired FBI Director James Comey, the New York Times reported Tuesday night.

According to the report, Trump was angered when he learned of the relationship and was about to fire Muller when White House staff stepped in and convinced him it would be a disastrous move.

Citing White House sources, the Times revealed that Trump told staff, visitors, and advisers last week that he felt Mueller had become part of a “witch hunt’ against him and “wanted him gone.”

Trump reportedly became aware of the longtime relationship between Mueller and Comey after being alerted to reports on Breitbart News and other conservative media outlets.

“Trump is volatile enough that they can’t be sure that he won’t change his mind if he grows upset with how the investigation is conducted,” the sources told the Times.

Tuesday night, Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders maintained the president has the right to fire Mueller, but doesn’t plan on it.

The report goes on to state that while Trump is suspicious of Mueller and that he is still furious with Attorney General Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing the Russia probe.

During his testimony before Congress Tuesday, Session refused to answer any question regarding his conversations with the erratic president.
