Mike Huckabee: Trump Less likely to Fire Mueller than Quit Twitter

Mike Huckabee: Trump Less likely to Fire Mueller than Quit Twitter

Mike Huckabee says Americans should not buy into the argument that President Donald Trump is on the verge of firing special counsel Robert Mueller – even though the mainstream media seems to suggest that he will.

“Mainstream news reports paint a picture of President Trump and his White House as increasingly upset and worried about what new information special counsel Robert Mueller will turn up with his aggressive searches of attorney Michael Cohen’s home, office, hotel room and security deposit box,” Huckabee writes on his blog MikeHuckabee.com.

"Overzealous reporters – and prosecutors – start from the assumption that Trump has something to hide … Of course the president is frustrated –- wouldn’t you be? Still, the media narrative goes even further, describing a President bursting at the seams and ready to fire Mueller.

"This is incorrect; Trump is well aware that eager opponents are just salivating at the thought of him firing the special counsel and the inevitable chain of events that would follow. His lawyers are surely telling him, ‘You’re innocent, so don’t act guilty.’ I’d say he’s less likely to fire Mueller that than he is to give up tweeting.”

Earlier this month, the FBI seized Cohen’s business records, emails and documents related to his $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels and other matters in what The New York Times reported was an investigation into possible bank fraud. Trump has labelled the raid a "witch hunt."
