Donald Trump says he will not fire Robert Mueller

August 10, 2017

  Ever since Robert Mueller was named special prosecutor in the Russian hacking/collusion scandal there has been speculation that Donald Trump would fire him. Of course there has been no basis for this speculation: it has come from Trump supporters who want to see Mueller fired, the mainstream media in an effort to drum up controversy, and Democratic Party members hoping to egg him into doing it by threatening Donald Trump with consequences if he does.

  Today Donald Trump put the speculation to rest, here is more:

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s job leading the probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election is safe, President Donald Trump said Thursday.

“I haven’t given it any thought,” Trump told reporters from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, when he was asked if he might fire Mueller as he did FBI Director James Comey earlier this year.

He then corrected himself on Mueller, acknowledging that he’s “been reading about it from you people.”

“You say, ‘Oh, I’m going to dismiss him.’ No, I’m not dismissing anybody,” Trump said. “I mean, I want them to get on with the task. But I also want the Senate and the House to come out with their findings.”

  Donald Trump is right when he says that Robert Mueller has “been reading about it from you people.” The President has not even hinted at firing Robert Mueller and yet the attempt to create a story where no story existed was too tempting for many people to ignore.

  The fact of the matter is, as I see it, Donald Trump cannot fire Robert Mueller and have any hope of passing his agenda. He already faces long odds with the Democrats united as the party of no and with establishment Republicans opposing him more vigorously than they ever opposed Barack Obama, if he did fire Robert Mueller those long odds would fall all the way to zero and I think he realizes this.

    Mueller has Carter Blanche allowing him to investigate any and every facet of Trump’s public and private life. Meanwhile pant suit lady, unencumbered by her shady and illegal carryings on since Watergate, is free to bake cupcakes in the Clinton Crime Family kitchen.

    DNC Hack Was ‘Inside Job,’ Not by Russia: The Nation –
    (S0 what happens to Mueller?)

    “Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak — a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device.

    “In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system,” the experts concluded, since a remote hack of the committee’s servers — with the volume of data stolen — would have been technologically impossible.

      Could that somebody be former DNC “chairperson” DWS’s IT guy Awan? This guy had access to his Dem clients email accounts. Why wouldn’t he download info from the DNC? The FBI as usual won’t touch this – McCabe and Baker are owned by the Clinton’s. Who knows where the new director’s loyalty lie

      I have to disagree that there would have been technically impossible for a remote hack. They would not have downloaded the whole database. The hackers would have only downloaded the data which was the most useful. The data would not have been downloaded at once because that would have set of alarms. What they could have done was to install a rootkit which would allowed them to create a place to store files undetected (rather than a portable drive). With the data copied, they could upload it in smaller chunks using malware over the course of days or even weeks. With something like Tor, they could disguise the destiation of the uploads to reduce suspicion.

      Please note, this uses tools that I know that exist. Real hackers probably have better tools to do these things faster and more stealthily.

      I’ll admit that this is specualtion but it is no more speculatory than the article which I am sure is meant to distract because the facts point to the hackers using social engineering to gain access to the email accounts.

        The People on board with the story are no less than William Binney the architect of the whole NSA spy program on Americans. I think you will find the people involved to be credible. Look up William Binney “stellar wind” video.

        What I am saying is that the claim that it was impossible is bull****. There are hackers that are able to steal millions of credit card numbers. Yet, they are not able to steal thousands of emails? Give me a break.

        The key problem with the article is that it claims that it was a remote hack in the first place. The evidence is that it was accomplished using social engineering. They did not break in; they managed to trick a few dozen staffers to give them the keys to the castle.

        Of course, the article is misinformation to discredit the allegations and sweep it under the rug. Of course, the authoritarian right will believe what they want to believe and facts are just authoritarian left talking points.

      I have heard this recently as well Bunkerville and I do believe it was an inside job by a disgruntled Sanders supporter who was upset at the way the Democrats rigged the system against him.

    On today’s show Dr. Savage mentioned the following: Lacertilia Beria one of Stalin’s heads of the NKVD during the great purges said “Show me a man and I’ll find a crime.” Hey Mueller you we’re talking about you political hack, you rat fink.

      Another purge is in the works here and there is no doubt in my mins they will be able to find crimes to pin on somebody. Remember Scooter Libby.

    Isn’t it time for the Bohemian Grove Occult gathering for the political leaders to do their blood sacrifices or is that over? Maybe they’re done so they can go back to conducting ‘meaningless’ inquirers. They didn’t get all rabid when Bari “really did” use inside hacking to win his last election, but since it’s not Hilly in, they’ll log-jam the swamp cleaner to save their own repulsive skins! The parasites want to stack the deck. I’d send in some ‘negotiators’ to reason with the ‘knuckle draggers’! Can’t they do anything worthwhile? Come on Steve get over there and talk to them, I’m sure they’ll listen to you 😊

      I think the Bohemian Grove meeting is in the Spring but I am not sure. Yeah, send somebody in with an offer they cannot refuse…

        Yes, it was in July “secretive Bohemian Clubs private campground the Bohemian Grove, where each year in July many of the elites of the United States meet for privately for upwards of two weeks. Many strange rituals take place amongst the redwoods of California along with talks and discussions often of a political nature.”
        Probably best that you don’t get involved Steve, you might not be around to do your blog anymore … or do anything. 😕 But I like your intent! 🙂

        I’m going with “secretive cabal!” And remember wasn’t Scalia at some secretive event when he died? I might have that wrong.
        Just remember if I disappear I was not suicidal. 😉

    Yeah, just like he didn’t fire Priebus. He brought in Scaramuci and Priebus was out. In business you often bring in a manager to “clean house”. The trick here is just like with Comedy you need to build a trap. I’m sure there is a tipping point.

    And speaking of Priebus, he is the one who supposedly suggested Mueller.

      That’s interesting, I wonder what the trap could be.

        The theory that I’ve seen on Twitter has to do with the notes that Mr. Trump sent Meuller and threatened something bad if they get leaked. The theory is that something from those notes will be leaked (not necessarily by Mueller) and that would be the justification.

      Like how you provide more ‘insight’ into these matters CJ, thanks!
      Donald’s IQ is said to be 156. Snoops (Soros owned) says that info is “incomplete and inaccurate”, so we know it’s pretty much ‘around there’. He doesn’t drink or take drugs and keeps a sharp mind unlike those coming against him.
