on

During a press conference from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey in August 2017, President Donald Trump said that he never even thought about firing special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I haven’t given it any thought,” Trump told reporters Aug. 10 when the press asked if he wants to fire the special counsel. “I’m not dismissing anybody.”

Trum then corrected himself on Mueller, saying that he’s “been reading about it from you people.”

“You say, ‘Oh, I’m going to dismiss him.’ No, I’m not dismissing anybody,” Trump said. “I mean, I want them to get on with the task. But I also want the Senate and the House to come out with their findings.”

Thursday’s report from The New York Times revealed that what Trump told reporters was a lie. Just two months before, Trump ordered White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller.

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed

Published

George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.

"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making.
