President Trump’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, dropped a bomb in the aftermath of AG Sessions’ ouster of Andrew McCabe which has Dems frothing at the mouth this weekend.
Dowd told the Daily Beast that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein ought to end the dubious Russia investigation and fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
At first he indicated he was speaking on behalf of Trump. Then he suddenly recanted and clarified he was speaking on his own accord.
That sent Chuck Schumer and other Democrats into a tizzy on Twitter and elsewhere threatening all sorts of really bad things that shall come to pass if Mueller is fired.
Trump was visibly shaking in his boots. Okay, not really.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Democratic lawmakers sounded the alarm on Saturday about President Trump possibly committing obstruction of justice after his attorney suggested special counsel Robert Mueller should be fired after FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe got the boot Friday.
Trump’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, told the Daily Beast he hopes to see Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Mueller’s Russia investigation, fire Mueller like Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe. He originally indicated that we was speaking on behalf of Trump, but later clarified that he was speaking on behalf of himself and not the president.
Democrats, who are already weary of the president’s criticism of the Russia investigation, skewered Dowd’s comments on Twitter Saturday.
