In an interview with The Daily Beast, one of Trump’s personal lawyer John Dowd said he hopes that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will end the investigation into supposed collusion between Trump and the Russians.
President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, told The Daily Beast on Saturday morning that he hopes Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will shut down special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s election interference.
Reached for comment by email about the firing of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Dowd sent The Daily Beast the text of Trump’s most recent tweet on the subject, which applauded the dismissal.
“I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier,” Dowd then wrote.
Although Trump’s base might like this I do not see this happening anytime soon. The firinng of Mueller would be condemned by almost everyone in Washington and would almost ensure impeachment proccedings. It doesn’t matter that after more than a year no collusion has actually been found Muellers probe is untouchable to the Washington Estblishment.
