In what is easily the biggest bombshell in weeks, four people speaking on the condition of anonymity, have revealed a shocking plot that President Trump himself executed by ordering the end of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probes into Russian collusion and obstruction of justice.
Last June, Trump literally ordered the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller. The only reason Trump’s order was not carried out, is because he ordered White House counsel Donald McGahn to ask the Justice Department to dismiss the special counsel, and McGahn threatened to quit and refused to carry out Trump’s order.
Trump then reportedly “backed off” and McGahn told White House officials that Trump would not follow through on the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller on his own. McGahn told Trump the obvious, that firing Mueller would have a “catastrophic effect” on his presidency.
Mueller discovered this incident fairly recently, as his investigators interviewed current and former senior White House officials as part of his obstruction of justice investigation.
Trump tried to justify the firing of Mueller by claiming that Mueller had conflicts of interest due to a “fees” dispute at Trump National Golf Club when Mueller was the director of the FBI and because Mueller had been interviewed to return as FBI director in May.
This report is incredibly shocking because it was only speculated that Trump was thinking of firing Mueller. Trump actually ordered Mueller fired. If McGahn didn’t stop Trump, Mueller would have been fired.
