Trump Set to Fire Another One

Trump has friends in high places — or at least that’s what the POTUS believed until yesterday. A close family friend of the current President, Chris Ruddy, told PBS NewsHour that he has reason to believe that Trump is considering firing Special Counsel leader Robert Mueller. This comes only days after Sean Comey’s interview with the Special Counsel into Trump’s potential ties with Russia and election hacking.

Ruddy’s short but very revealing interview with PBS reporter Judy Woodruff made it clear that while he didn’t have confirmation of the fact, he did strongly believe the change was coming. He also made it a point to clarify that he believed that, if Trump were to make such a move, it would be a gross mistake on his part.

“I think he’s weighing that option,” Ruddy began. “I personally think it would be a very significant mistake, even though I don’t think there’s a justification … for a special counsel.”

Ruddy also made it clear that his lack of support for the appointment of a Special Counsel isn’t indicative for his support of Mueller.

When questioned about his thoughts on the DOJ’s recent appointment of Mueller to the Special Counsel, he cited conflicts of interest and potential bias as one of his concerns. He specifically pointed out the fact that Mueller’s law firm serves as legal representatives for the Trump family. Ruddy was also concerned by the fact that Mueller only applied for the position of FBI Director after Trump fired Comey from the position in the first place.

It wasn’t immediately clear exactly why the late application posed a problem for Ruddy, but he isn’t the only one to bring up concerns about Mueller. In a separate interview, Newt Gingrich also pointed out the potential for bias or conflict of interest due to the fact that Mueller regularly receives donations from people he’s directly hired to work for the FBI.

“I think Congress should now intervene and they should abolish the independent counsel, because Comey makes so clear that it’s the poison fruit of a deliberate manipulation by the FBI director leaking to The New York Times, deliberately set up this particular situation. It’s very sick. It’s very clear that Comey hates Trump.”

Oddly, it was Gingrich himself who lauded the decision to hire Mueller not long ago, calling the choice “impeccable and superb.”

“Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down.”

The exchange between Ruddy and PBS may have gone largely unnoticed if not for the fact that CNBC correspondent Kayla Tausche spotted Ruddy leaving the White House after the interview on June 12. Ruddy is also the owner of right-wing news outlet NewsMax.



  1. All these mud slinging accusations against President Trump only indicate how deep the swamp is with corruption and how badly it needs to be drained out of Washington D. C. Unfortunately it also includes many republicans in bed with and taking money from Soros.

  2. The Clinton Foundation so to speak is a good way to somewhat hide the truth of what the foundation really is for. I think the best and only way to finally get this into the history book IS have a complete and thorough in depth investigation done. All the Clinton’s will testify under oath. Any statements found to be not correct, should have a very large negative impact on all their futures. I would think that all the Clintons property, foundation,all other hidden financial resources need to become gov’t seized assets. For each word under oath found to be not correct to have an amount of 3 months in a federal prison. A strong message that our current justice dept will enforce the laws period. All American Citizens are equal under the law, and all deserve the same negative results for deliberate false statements or flat out lies.

  3. You my friend, sounds like an angry man. It’s because of people like you that voted for Trump, that the Republican were being shot at yesterday. You voted for this asshole and look at what’s happening with the country. A lifetime Democrat runs for president and wins on the Republican party and is tearing them apart. The Republican party is doing a lousy job if running this country. America is the laughing stock throughout the world.

  4. Trump is the biggest embarrassment in our nation’s history. I vote to begin impeachment process now.

  5. If you want to know what I think here go’s i think that it is just a big bunch of bull shit and i agree with President Trump they need to investigate all of the Clinton family and Obama and put them in prison where they belong and let President Trump save what is left of our country thanks President Trump we are on your train till the end
