MUELLER BOMBSHELL: Trump Tried Firing Mueller, White House Adviser REFUSED

Trump may have been inadvertently protected from charges of obstruction thanks to White House counsel refusing his directions.

Among the massive, 400+ pages of the Mueller report, there are bound to be some revelations for We The People…and not all of them are going to look great for the White House or The President.

One of the preliminary issues that scouring through the report has provided us is the fact that there were ten separate “episodes” for which Robert Mueller was investigating the President for potential obstruction of justice.

In one such case, it appears as though a member of the President’s inner circle avoided bringing the obstruction possibility to fruition by simply refusing Trump’s request to have Robert Mueller removed from his position as Special Counsel.

Former White House counsel Don McGahn refused repeated requests from the White House to deny that President Trump asked him to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, according to Mueller’s investigation.

In January 2018, reports surfaced in the media that Trump had ordered McGahn to have Mueller fired, citing alleged conflicts of interests. Those reports said McGahn threatened to quit rather than comply with the order.

Trump called such reports “fake news” at the time. Then Trump’s personal counsel and two aides told McGahn to deny the accounts, according to Mueller.

“Each time he was approached, McGahn responded that he would not refute the press accounts because they were accurate in reporting on the President’s efforts to have the Special Counsel removed,” Mueller’s report states.

Trump later berated McGahn about his note taking on the subject.

Trump went on to confront McGahn on his practice of taking notes during their discussions, saying, “What about these notes? Why do you take notes? Lawyers don’t take notes. I never had a lawyer who took notes,” according to Mueller’s office.

It was indicated in the Mueller report that it was this refusal by McGahn that spared him from being charged with a crime by Mueller and his team.
