“Mass Hysteria” Inside White House As Trump Considers Trying To Fire Robert Mueller

Trump and Mueller

According to many leaks and rumors coming from the White House, Trump is considering trying to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. As previously pointed out, Trump can’t really do that, as a practical matter. But he can try, and now it sounds like he just might. As a result, Trump’s White House has dissolved into “mass hysteria.”


That’s the word from acclaimed White House reporter April Ryan, who reported on-air on CNN that there is indeed “mass hysteria” in the White House. No one on Donald Trump’s staff seems to know whether or not Trump will try to fire Robert Mueller in an attempt at derailing the Russia investigation. The move would be political suicide, and it would only lead Congress to turn around and appoint Mueller as an Independent Counsel essentially giving him back his current job but with more power and job security. And yet Trump might do it anyway.


Thus far Donald Trump has fired:

  • Acting Attorney General Sally Yates;
  • S. Attorney Preet Bharara;
  • FBI Director James Comey.

Trump has done this in the hope of derailing the Russia investigation. All of these moves have backfired on Trump to some degrees. In specific, Comey’s firing directly led to the appointment of the Special Counsel to begin with.


And so even as America waits to see how Trump decides to seal his fate, whether by allowing the Special Counsel to carve him up for his Russia crimes, or by trying to fire the Special Counsel in a manner which would backfire in every way possible, it’s not surprising to learn that Trump’s own White House staffers are having the most fearful reaction over it. They have the most to lose, because if Trump goes through with it, he’ll end up out of a job and so will they.   Mass hysteria indeed.
