If Donald Trump tried to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it could be a lot harder than people think.
White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders says he won’t do it.
Last Monday, she was asked: “Is the President going to rule out, once and for all, firing [Special Prosecutor] Robert Mueller.”
“There's no intention or plan to make any changes in regards to the special counsel,” she replied.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn), fresh off warning that the President might start World War III, can’t imagine he’ll do it.
Last Tuesday, a reporter cornered the president’s harshest Senate critic in a hallway and posed the following: “There are stories that the President is thinking about firing Mueller. Do you think that’s appropriate?”
The tired-looking Corker replied: “I can't imagine there’s any truth or veracity to the president thinking that he would consider firing Mueller. ... Hopefully the question being asked is a question about something that cannot possibly be reality.”
