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.

All of the Republican hypocrites who said they opposed a new Supreme Court Justice in 2016
Republicans have been criticized for their hypocrisy over the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her replacement compared to the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.
PBS News gathered what all Republicans have said about whether the president in 2016 should have the right to appoint a justice at that time. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, these Republicans are having their own words brought back and questioning why the rules are different for Democrats.
‘Get the hell out!’: Trump supporters freak out when protesters show up to Lindsey Graham event
A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."
Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.
"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers
At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.
Black man takes N-word spewing racist to school — and makes him promise to never do it again
When a racist White guy at a marina shouted out the N-word at a group of Black men, he probably didn't count on their response being a history lesson, but that's precisely what happened.
While President Donald Trump is claiming that Black community members are beating and killing White racists and responding with general violence, the two men showed a different reality.
"What made you say it?" the men asked.
The white guy shrugged.
"You that racist?" one of the men asks.
"Uh, no, I--" the White guy tried to answer.
"Then why would you call us a n*gger?" one of the men asks.
