Former Donald Trump campaign communications adviser Jason Miller made an appearance on CNN to speak with Breanna Keilar. The former adviser insisted that the bombshell reported by the New York Times about Trump ordering the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller wasn’t true because it did not appear in Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury.”
It was reported on Thursday by the Times that Trump ordered the firing of the special counsel until White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit.
“It really makes liars of the president and a number of his top aides,” Keilar explained, rolling a montage of White House aides insisting the president had not considered dismissing the special counsel.
Keilar then reminded Miller that both “CNN confirmed it” and “Fox News confirmed it.”
“Four people said they were briefed on this supposed conversation,” Miller replied. “Does not say there were four people in the room.”
“That’s who you’re going with, ‘supposed conversation?’” Keilar asked.
“We just had this Michael Wolff book pop,” Miller said. “And so this is something that supposedly happened seven months ago, we had this gossip book that came out with hundreds of pages of things that were somewhat true—maybe not true—and you tell me this detail didn’t even make it into that book, that this is something that no one ever heard about and just now, while the president is in Davos, giving this momentous speech, this is when it pops?”
“I don’t know,” he continued. “It seems suspect to me. The whole thing, we’re treating it like the president actually went and fired Mueller. He didn’t. Even if he did … he can fire anyone he wants anytime he wants.”
