There are several voices related to the billionaire who have dropped the idea that the president dismissed former FBI Director Robert Mueller
The political future of Donald Trump is largely in the hands of former FBI Director Robert Mueller, now in charge of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections, something that does not escape the environment closest to the magnate, where already Have begun to brand sabers on the head of the high official.
After the cinematic appearance of James Comey, whom Trump himself dismissed at the beginning of May for being in charge of the research on the Russian plot from the FBI, there are already several voices related to the multimillionaire who have dropped the idea that the President also dismissed Mueller.
Republicans are delirious if they think the special prosecutor is going to be fair “
Former President of the House of Representatives and important ally of Trump Newt Gingrich attacked Mueller today without warning through his social network Twitter. “Republicans are delirious if they think the special prosecutor is going to be fair,” the conservative wrote, though Mueller is one of the most prestigious FBI ex-directors for both Democrats and Republicans.
In fact, Gingrich himself hailed Mueller’s election as an independent prosecutor for the case last month, however, today he radically changed his mind on the grounds that the investigator has formed his team with several Democratic donors and former Clinton Foundation employees, Which calls into question its impartiality.

“I do not know where Mueller’s head is,” Gingrich said in conversation with The Hill. “How do you get out and hire someone who worked for the Clinton Foundation?”
Even so, the former House Speaker and presidential hopeful emphasized that he was not asking for any specific action against Mueller, something that other people do not rule out from the multimillionaire.

Jay Sekulow, a new member of the president’s personal legal team, declined to rule Mueller’s dismissal at Trump’s hands in a televised interview Sunday, while Chris Ruddy, a personal friend of the president, said today that Trump already has the idea in head.
“I think he’s considering maybe ending the special prosecutor,” Ruddy said on PBS. I think you’re weighing that option. ” “Personally I think it would be a very important mistake, although I do not think.
The lack of witnesses in the talks between Comey and Trump makes Mueller responsible for deciding whether there was obstruction of justice
There is a justification for having a special prosecutor (on the Russian case), “he added.
Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was packed with details of the dubious ethics talks and exchanges that the former FBI deputy director shared with Trump, however, Comey left to the special prosecutor of the case to determine if they incurred or Not “obstruction of justice”.
As he reported, the billionaire openly asked him for “loyalty” while still running the FBI, as well as asking him to “let go” of the open investigation of his former national security adviser Michael Flynn for his contacts with Moscow.
In making public his version of the facts, of which Comey is aware that there are no witnesses, it falls to Mueller to clarify the role of Trump’s campaign in the interference already tested by the Russians in the elections, but also The role of Trump in the development of open investigations in this regard.
The possibility of dismissing Mueller does not sound far-fetched for a Trump unaccustomed to political corrections, however, the decision to take it could be counterproductive.
As Peter Wehner, who worked for the governments of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, to quell Mueller would be “a very trumpian tactic, but it would be a bomb politically.” “It would be a political bomb,” the Republican mused, “and it could be very close to an admission of guilt.”
