This sort of seals the deal:
President Trump on Sunday sought to douse speculation that he may fire special counsel Robert S. Mueller III amid an intensifying campaign by Trump allies to attack the wide-ranging Russia investigation as improper and politically motivated.
Returning to the White House from Camp David, Trump was asked Sunday whether he intended to fire Mueller. “No, I’m not,” he told journalists, insisting that there was “no collusion whatsoever” between his campaign and Russia.
The president’s comments came a day after a lawyer representing Trump’s transition team accused Mueller of wrongfully obtaining thousands of emails sent and received by Trump officials before the start of his administration — a legal and public relations maneuver seen as possibly laying the groundwork to oust the special counsel.
Trump criticized Mueller for gaining access to those emails, telling reporters the situation was “not looking good.”
“It’s quite sad to see that,” Trump said. “My people were very upset about it.”
The funny part of this, in a sick way, is that I think there are still people out there clinging to the fantasy that Trump firing Mueller would finally be the bridge to far and Republican Senators would stand up to Trump and appoint another prosecutor.
*** SPOILER ALERT ***
They won’t. The “great mean” of the Republican party have had multiple opportunities to stand up to Trump, and the have passed every single time. Maybe it’s time to realize there are no great men left in the GOP?
