Top Intel Dem warns Trump

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff(Calif.), fired back at reports that President Trump is considering firing FBI special counsel Robert Mueller with a simple message to the president: “Don’t waste our time.”

“If President [Trump] fired Bob Mueller, Congress would immediately re-establish independent counsel and appoint Bob Mueller,” Schiff tweeted Monday evening. “Don’t waste our time.”

“I can only imagine this is part of the effort to tear down Robert Mueller,” Schiff told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Monday night.

“You can’t exclude the possibility [of Mueller’s dismissal],” he continued. “But I think it’s just a way of raising doubts about this man who’s well respected on both sides of the aisle.”

He pledged on “Hardball” that if Trump removed Mueller, Congress would move to reappoint him to continue the investigation.

A friend of Trump told PBS on Monday evening that Trump is considering firing Mueller, who is leading the FBI investigation into Russian election meddling and potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“I think he’s considering perhaps terminating the special counsel,” Chris Ruddy told PBS’s Judy Woodruff on “PBS NewsHour.”

“I think he’s weighing that option.”

Ruddy, the CEO of conservative news organization NewsMax, was spotted leaving the White House earlier on Monday.

    I don’t blame him….so far Mueller has shown nothing but partisan lefty tenancies. He hired four DNC lawyers who are not interested in the truth they are interested in impeachment.

    Yes Trump should fire him even if he is re-appointed.

    JO

    Sen Schiff doesn’t seem to know the rules about special consul and if he did he should know that Mueller has to resign and should never have taken this job in the first place-WHY-If you read this go ck the rules about being s. consul and it will tell you–do some homework and know the bs going on with the Dems. After the shooting in Va(my home St) Dems should be looking over THEIR shoulder. If one preaches violence(fire & brimstone) stuff happens.

    I think is this is true I am kinda with Trump on this the dude just hired 3 or 4 dnc lawyers.Does not sound like fair and balanced to me

  • Louisiana Lady

    Schiff is one of the most contemptible Dems around. As a member of the gang of 8 intelligence committee he was informed long ago by Comey that POTUS was not under investigation but continued to suggest that Trump was under investigation. It is quite evident that the Dems are, and have been, on a witch hunt to delegitimize Trump.

    I think it is about time to put an end to all this as they call…”witch hunt” All this is doing is wasting taxpayers dollars to prove NOTHING, as there is NOTHING to prove. All this basically is, are a bunch of disgruntled SCUMOCRAT/RINO “elites” P.O.’d because “their” candidate hitlery got her butt beat. All are acting like spoiled children that had their candy taken away.

    • lorna shores

      they just want to keep trump from his agenda, ! all they are doing is stalling for time.

      • pappy450

        THAT is exactly RIGHT! They are trying every LIE possible to stop him. NOW they are starting to move away from the ‘Russian” LIE (that didn’t fly) and now they are into “obstruction of justice” LIE. Just more Taxpayer money being WASTED by these frivolous “investigations”. PRESIDENT TRUMP is referring to as “witch hunts”.

  • Free America

    Mueller is the guy who wants sharia law in America. He is besties with Comer. Now they are throwing more gossip and inuendo around. This is a set up if there ever was one. BTW nobody walks away from a special prosecution without some dirt on them. Trump better watch his back

    .
    I was not amazed to find out that DemoncRat Schiff (D-CA) is in charge of “Congress”, and that the Congress will just send the Mule back if Rosenstein [Trumpm] fires him. The Rs are in charge of the House, Senate and Executive [but definitely not in charge of the judiciary and SCOTUS], but the MSM and their DemoncRat lackeys are in charge of the scheduling of all committees in the House & Senate. And the world turned upside down, when you hollered “Oh, Babe”.

    THE R’s ARE BABBLING BLITHERING IDIOTS IN CHARGE OF NOTHING.
