The glaring problem with Trump's dismissal of the Mueller story

"Any attempt to remove the special counsel, pardon key witnesses, or otherwise interfere in the investigation, would be a gross abuse of power".

"If the multiple independent reports of his intention to fire special counsel Mueller are accurate, this is a step that no one in Congress should ignore, and all must be invested in holding him accountable".

The newspaper reports that Trump demanded Mueller's firing just weeks after the special counsel was first appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

McGahn first met with Trump in 2014 when the then-real estate tycoon was thinking about running for president, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Then, there was the fact that Mueller used to work at a law firm that had represented Jared Kushner. Even Trump's favorite network, Fox News, reported that "Trump did have conversations about firing Mueller", though it said those conversation "might not have amounted to an outright directive" to fire Mueller. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said that if the report in The Times is true, Trump has crossed a "red line".

But after White House counsel Don McGahn refused to follow the order and threatened to resign, Trump backed down. Mr Mueller learnt 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.

McGahn, though, told the president in no uncertain terms that firing Mueller - the head of the probe into possible collusion by Trump associates with Moscow - would be a horrible idea and blow up in his face, the source said.

So, what did Hannity do then?

"Here is the story: There has been no collusion whatsoever. Typical New York Times fake stories", Trump told reporters. So it would have left his presidency in chaos and huge legal questions swirling around Trump's future.
