Last June Trump TRIED to fire Robert Mueller…His White House Lawyer talked him out of it…

The NY Times is reporting that President Donald Trump ordered Special Council (Prosecutor) Robert Mueller in June of last year…..

The Times reports that Trump’s own White Councel (Lawyer) Donald F. McGahn II, refused to do so, advising that he’d resign….

Anybody out there STILL that Donald Trump isn’t worried about the investigation?

Things ARE just gonna get worst….

President Trump ordered the firing last June of Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, according to four people told of the matter, but ultimately backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive.

The West Wing confrontation marks the first time Mr. Trump is known to have tried to fire the special counsel. Mr. Mueller learned about the episode in recent months as his investigators interviewed current and former senior White House officials in his inquiry into whether the president obstructed justice.

Amid the first wave of news media reports that Mr. Mueller was examining a possible obstruction case, the president began to argue that Mr. Mueller had three conflicts of interest that disqualified him from overseeing the investigation, two of the people said…

After receiving the president’s order to fire Mr. Mueller, the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, refused to ask the Justice Department to dismiss the special counsel, saying he would quit instead, the people said. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing a continuing investigation.

Mr. McGahn disagreed with the president’s case. He also told senior White House officials that firing Mr. Mueller would have a catastrophic effect on Mr. Trump’s presidency and would incite more questions about whether the White House was trying to obstruct the Russia investigation. Mr. McGahn also told White House officials that Mr. Trump would not follow through on the dismissal on his own. The president then backed off….

To recap: Trump asked Comey for loyalty; asked him to drop the Flynn probe; fired Comey; pressured Sessions not to recuse; pressured Sessions to fire McCabe; pressured Coats, Rogers, Pompeo &multiple congressmen to say he wasn’t under FBI investigation; and tried to fire Mueller.

He was supposed to go before a federal grand jury….That has been cancelled…

The Mueller group seems to be building a foundation to move up the ladder and squeeze Trump & Co…..

Remember …..

Mueller’s people are actively questioning almots all of the Trump Admin senior staff in the admin and last years campaign….

Oh, and this whole thing is NOT gonna be over in a month like Trump’s people are trying to sell….

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn was charged Friday with making a false statement to the FBI about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, marking another monumental development in the wide-ranging probe of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

Flynn was expected to enter a plea at 10:30, according to the special counsel’s office. The charges relate to false statements Flynn made to the FBI on January 24, four days after President Trump was inaugurated, about his meeting with Kislyak during the transition….

Update….

Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!

( Donald Trump REALLY doesn’t get it…Does he? )

Mike Flynn lawyer’s stop talking to Trump’s….

Mike Flynn has awfully quiet in the last few months….

It is pretty common knowledge that Flynn and possibley his son will be indicted by a Mueller Grand Jury ….

So with the knowledge that the lawyers have severed their communications one could infur that Flynn has been/ or is working on cooperating with the Special Cousel (Prosecutor ) office….

It appears that Mueller office is starting form the bottom and moving up the ladder of the Trump campaign….

They are having Q & A’s with Trump campaign staff and White House staff over the next few weeks and they seem to have a good idea about what has happened durin the campaign and in the beginning of the Trump Admin….

And from media reports?

A LOT was’s on the up and up….

A deal with Mr. Flynn would give Mr. Mueller a behind-the-scenes look at the Trump campaign and the early tumultuous weeks of the administration. Mr. Flynn was an early and important adviser to Mr. Trump, an architect of Mr. Trump’s populist “America first” platform and an advocate of closer ties with Russia.

His ties to Russia predated the campaign — he sat with President Vladimir V. Putin at a 2015 event in Moscow — and he was a point person on the transition team for dealing with Russia.

Among the interactions that Mr. Mueller is investigating is a private meeting that Mr. Flynn had with the Russian ambassador and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, during the presidential transition. In the past year, it has been revealed that the Trump campaign repeatedly tried to meet with Russian officials who were promising compromising information on Mrs. Clinton.

Mr. Flynn is regarded as loyal to Mr. Trump, but he has in recent weeks expressed serious concerns to friends that prosecutors will bring charges against his son, Michael Flynn Jr., who served as his father’s chief of staff and was a part of several financial deals involving the elder Mr. Flynn that Mr. Mueller is scrutinizing….
