This amateurish effort appears to be simply another installment in the eight-month smear campaign against the Russia probe by Trump allies. In a prebuttal, ACS and CREW identify and describe the speciousness of several lines of attack against the Mueller investigation. This latest salvo, yet again, provides no grounds to discredit the Special Counsel’s inquiry or its leadership.
Nevertheless, the president appears poised to use the Nunes memo as grounds for firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who established the order for a special counsel and oversees the inquiry. After the memo’s release, Trump was asked by reporters if he planned to fire Rosenstein. Reportedly, he said, “You figure that one out.”
We are now watching Trump’s Saturday Night Massacre in slow motion right before our eyes. This is shameful.
