    Today on: https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday...04/10/day-446/

    Day 446: "Why don't I just fire Mueller?"

    (Looks like a few of these will be repeats, but I'll include the whole batch anyway)

    1/ Michael Cohen is under federal investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud, and violations of campaign finance law. The bank and wire fraud charges suggest prosecutors believe Cohen may have misled bankers about his use of certain funds or improperly used banks to transfer funds. Among the documents taken were those related to a 2016 payment Cohen made to Stormy Daniels. (Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.c5a65d674124

    Lou Dobbs urged Trump to fire Robert Mueller in response to the raid of Michael Cohen's offices. "This is now a man that has to be brought under control, it would seem to me," Dobbs said. "Frankly, I can't imagine ― because each of us has to come to terms with our own heart and conscience ― I would fire the SOB in three seconds if it were me." (HuffPost)

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...b07a3485e7af64

    "Why don't I just fire Mueller? Well, I think it's a disgrace what's going on. We'll see what happens," Trump said. "But I think it's really a sad situation, when you look at what happened. And many people have said, you should fire him." (CNN / Politico)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...a-probe-511118

    Sen. Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said "it would be suicide for the President to fire" Mueller. I think the less the President says about this whole thing, the better off he will be. And I think Mueller is a person of stature and respected and I respect him. Just let the thing go forward." (CNN)

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/10/polit...ide/index.html

    Trump is "less inclined" to sit down for an interview with Robert Mueller after the raid on Michael Cohen. One source said Trump is "understandably less trusting" of Mueller and his team. (ABC News)

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/presi...ry?id=54362470

    2/ Rod Rosenstein signed off on the FBI's decision to raid Cohen's office. Agents were looking, in part, for records about payments Cohen made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, as well as information related to the publisher of The National Enquirer's role in silencing one of the women. Rosenstein, a Republican prosecutor, was picked by Trump to serve as deputy attorney general. (New York Times)

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/10/u...osenstein.html

    3/ In a pair of morning tweets, Trump declared that the raids are "A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!" and that "attorney–client privilege is dead!" Attorney-client privilege is intended to encourage open communications between lawyers and their clients, so that lawyers can provide legal advice. The privilege is not absolute and there are exceptions for communications made to further a crime. The FBI would have to demonstrate probably cause to a magistrate judge that evidence of a crime would be found in Cohen's offices, or in a hotel where he was living. "No question, a search warrant for a lawyer is an extraordinary act," Frank Montoya, a former senior FBI official, said. "Everyone involved in this process, including the judge who signed the warrant, understood the scrutiny that would follow its execution. As such, everyone in the process would have done their damnedest to make the warrant as bulletproof as possible." (Reuters / NBC News)

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKBN1HH2B2

    4/ The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York is recused from the Michael Cohen investigation. Geoffrey Berman is a Trump appointee with ties to Rudy Giuliani, who donated money to the 2016 Trump campaign. The recusal was approved by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. (ABC News)

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/us-at...ry?id=54365546

    Former US Attorney Preet Bharara: The FBI raids were done by officials who were all "handpicked" by Trump. "If the reporting is true, particularly the part about this being approved by the Southern District of New York Attorney's Office which I used to lead, are all people who are Republican, and all people who have basically been handpicked by Donald Trump." (CNN)

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/09/polit...aid/index.html

    5/ Robert Mueller is investigating a $150,000 donation to the Trump Organization in 2015 from Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk. The donation by the Ukrainian steel magnate was made in return for a 20-minute appearance by Trump during the campaign, and is being investigated as part of Mueller's efforts to examine foreign money Trump and his associates received prior to the election. (New York Times)

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/09/u...r-pinchuk.html

    poll/ 25% of 18- to 29-year-olds approve of Trump's job performance. 37% of Americans under 30 who are eligible to vote said they will "definitely be voting" in the midterms, compared to 23% who said the same thing in 2014. And, 69% said they want to see Democrats in control, compared with 28 percent who favor Republican control. (Harvard University's Institute of Politics)

    Notables.

    Trump's homeland security adviser, Tom Bossert, resigned at the request of new National Security Adviser John Bolton. Bossert is the second national security official to leave the White House since Bolton began the job on Monday. Michael Anton, a spokesman for the National Security Council, announced his resignation on Sunday. (Bloomberg / CNBC)

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/10/trum...to-resign.html

    Trump won't attend the Summit of Americas this week as planned. He will, instead, stay in the U.S. and "oversee the American response to Syria." Pence will take Trump's place at the meetings. (Politico / New York Times)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...mericas-512221

    Mike Pompeo asked Hillary Clinton for guidance on how to prepare for the secretary of state confirmation process. Pompeo once called Clinton's response to the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, "morally reprehensible." (Politico)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...clinton-512155

    The chairman of Sinclair Broadcast Group met with Trump at the White House to pitch a new broadcasting standard the company is heavily invested in, which would allow authorities to broadcast directly to any American's phone. During the 2016 campaign, David Smith told Trump: "We are here to deliver your message." (The Guardian)

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...-house-meeting

    The Russian military has been jamming the GPS systems of U.S. military drones operating in Syria. The Defense Department did not say whether the jamming is causing drones to crash. (NBC News)

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/militar...-syria-n863931

    The EPA's chief of staff claimed responsibility for the pay raises given to two of Scott Pruitt's top aides. Ryan Jackson also said that the pay raises had been reversed. "Administrator Pruitt had zero knowledge of the amount of the raises, nor the process by which they transpired," Jackson wrote in an email statement. (Bloomberg)

    Even more so with the fact that both Chris Christie and Kellyanne Conway's husband have shit on this claim.

    Hey two scoops, attorney-client privilege doesn't apply when the attorney is also actively involved in plotting and covering up crimes.

    He's doing quite well. Much better than in most interviews I've seen him in.

    I'm looking forward to Mr Cruz. That man got's a way about him.

    lol Cruz' biggest problem with FB is that there aren't enough conservative ads.

    Mr. President, is there some sort of middleground between Russian Stooge and all out war with them? No, you don't grasp nuance? Got it.



    There's still a couple loophole ways Two Scoops could fire Mueller, but he doesn't have the advisers or the nuance to really pull it off. He also doesn't seem to realize that firing Mueller is basically just admission of guilt at this point.

    He was ALWAYS going to quit after the tax bill and go seek out a multimillion dollar benefits package from some appreciative company or another.

    That there is a blue wave coming and he'd be losing all power while being stuck with Trump and the tax bill eventually being pulled back didn't factor into it at all, I'm sure.
