Trump Considering Firing Rosenstein And/Or AG Sessions

Some leading national attorneys — who aren’t supporters of Trump — have called the FBI’s raid on the offices of Trump attorney Michael Cohen unconstitutional.

And after the raid, Trump lit up the FBI in a Twitter tirade.

Now sources are reporting that he’s considering retaliation for violating due process by firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and possibly even Attorney General Jeff Session for allowing the raid to take place at all.

It’s clear to many that Robert Mueller is an attack dog that has been unchained and allowed to hunt down whatever he chooses in hopes of finding dirt on the president.

It’s time to clean house, and Trump may be planning just that.

Here’s more from Hotair…

President Trump is considering firing Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein or possibly even AG Jeff Sessions, CNN reports. The goal is to create a “check” on Mueller’s investigation:

President Donald Trump is considering firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, multiple people familiar with the discussions tell CNN, a move that has gained urgency following the raid of the office of the President’s personal lawyer…

This is one of several options — including going so far as to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions — Trump is weighing in the aftermath of the FBI’s decision Monday to raid the office of Michael Cohen, the President’s personal lawyer and longtime confidant. Officials say if Trump acts, Rosenstein is his most likely target, but it’s unclear whether even such a dramatic firing like this would be enough to satisfy the President…

A senior administration official said the White House has been discussing potential options with key congressional Republican leaders, fearful of “blindsiding them.” A person familiar with the conversations says a top congressional Republican advised the White House not to fire Rosenstein.
