According to Siege: Trump Under Fire, a book that is going to be published on June 4th by Author Michael Wolff Mueller’s team of investigators thought that Donald Trump had the complete authority to fire him.
Mueller’s team also believed Trump could have fired Mueller directly, Wolff says, “arguing that the special counsel regulations are unconstitutional insofar as they limit his ability to fire the special counsel”.
Trump has claimed to have had the right to fire Mueller, but he has also denied Don McGahn’s testimony to Mueller that he was ordered to do so. Trump is now seeking to stop the former White House counsel testifying to Congress.
In another memo quoted by Wolff, Mueller’s staff wondered what would happen to the special counsel’s office, staff, records, pending investigations and grand juries reviewing evidence if Mueller was fired.
Of course, the Mainstream Media refuses to cover this aspect of Wolff’s new book. They talk about the supposed indictments that were drawn up on Donald Trump(which was debunked by Robert Mueller’s team) but not the fact Mueller thought Donald Trump had the ability to fire him. An idea that the Mainstream Media and Democrats claimed for months was wrong.
I will say I don’t trust Michael Wolff very much at all but I am yet to see the special counsel debunk this claim.
