Boehner on Firing Mueller, Rosenstein: 'Very Bad Idea'

("Today")

By    |   Friday, 13 April 2018 01:50 PM

Former House Speaker John Boehner thinks President Donald Trump should not fire special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein amid the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"It's a very bad idea. These are public servants who've got long careers, stand-up people who are charged with an investigation, and it's real clear," Boehner told NBC's "Today" show on Friday. 

"Either there are facts or there are not… the American people deserve to see the truth," he said. "There's no reason why these investigations should be impeded at all."

Adding: "I think it's really important that the American people understand what were the Russians up to and what were the campaigns doing talking to the Russians…but the American people deserve to know what happened and what didn't happen."

The former speaker noted that he was on a "no fly list" to Russia due to his criticism of President Vladimir Putin.

"Putin got tired of me calling him a thug," Boehner said.

Boehner announced Wednesday he's the new spokesman for Acreage Holdings, a company that cultivates, processes, and dispenses cannabis in 11 states.
