Special Counsel Robert Mueller is the tip of the Deep State spear against Trump.
President Trump could easily fire Robert Mueller for his advances against his administration, yet Trump allies have one interesting reason why Mueller needs to stay.
They believe it is just too complicated to bother firing Mueller.
If Trump fired Mueller, he would technically be breaking a code within the Department of Justice- something Richard Nixon was accused of doing as well.
The ability to fire special counsel members’ rests solely in the hands of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and not technically Trump.
Though Rosenstein could be ordered by the President to fire Mueller, Trump seems to have no intentions of doing so.
Furthermore, Trump could simply dismiss Rosenstein if he did not comply, and go down the chain of command.
Trump allies think Mueller should keep his job solely because it is too complicated to fire him.
Trump has considered firing Mueller for his alliances with Deep State politics, but for now, has decided against it.
The Daily Caller reported:
The reasoning behind Trump firing Mueller lays with the special counsel’s scope to investigate anything for an indefinite period of time, and allegations that he is part of the “deep state.” Mueller, a registered Republican, has also hired at least seven Democratic donors to be a part of his legal team.
“I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters. Some of them worked for Hillary Clinton. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous, if you want to know the truth, from that standpoint,” Trump told Fox News in a June interview.
The White House subsequently said that President Trump has “no intention” of firing Mueller, but retains the ability to do so.
Trump’s friend Chris Ruddy had said prior that Fox interview that Trump has considered firing Mueller. A Trump confidant later told The Daily Caller that this was done as part of an effort to convince the president that firing Mueller would not be a good decision, as Ruddy said, “I personally think it would be a significant mistake.”
While some allies are in support of Mueller retaining his position as special counsel, others are simply too bothered by the witch hunts he is conducting against members of Trump’s vicinity.
The Daily Caller reported:
Although other Trump allies don’t think much of Mueller. Former House Speaker Gingrich has tweeted that Mueller is the “anti-Trump special counsel,” and represents the “tip of the deep state spear aimed at destroying or at a minimum undermining and crippling the Trump presidency.”
This tweet came after it was reported by The Washington Post that Mueller is investigating whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice. It has since been reported by the Post that Mueller is also looking into Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner’s business dealings. CNN also reported that the special counsel plans to investigate emails released by Donald Trump Jr. Tuesday that reveal he was open to receiving information from the Russian government.
Regardless of complications, Deep State politicians should remain accountable for their actions against the President and his allies.
For now, Mueller’s job may be safe, but only time will tell what will eventually happen.
Do you think Mueller should be fired for spearheading Deep State conspiracies?
