‘Mass hysteria’: April Ryan’s June 2017 claim that White House freaked out over Mueller firing corroborates NYT bombshell

Published

White House correspondent April Ryan told CNN on the night of June 12, 2017 that the White House was in “mass hysteria” with staffers fearing President Donald Trump was about to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

Thursday night, The New York Times reported senior staffers corroborated that story to Mueller’s team that Trump wanted to fire the special counsel. It was White House counsel Don McGahn who stopped it by saying that if Trump did it he would resign. Trump didn’t fire Mueller after all. Months later, he even denied ever thinking about it.

Here’s what Ryan had to say seven months ago.

“One of my sources reached out to me right before we went on air and they said there’s mass hysteria in the West Wing about this,” Ryan explained “We don’t know if it’s going to happen or if it won’t happen, but what we do know: if indeed the president does fire Mueller, it shows that he’s impeding the process again.”

Ryan argued Mueller must be allowed to carry on his investigation “because of what [Trump] did with Comey,” referring to the president’s decision to fire the former FBI director over the Russia investigation.

“There’s a lot of smoke and there’s a lot of alarm bells going off,” Ryan continued. “The question is, where’s the fire.”

Ryan noted if Trump decided to fire Mueller, it would be a “big problem for him politically.”

Trump is ‘our chief criminal running a crime syndicate out of the West Wing’: Former federal prosecutor

Published

on

Former federal prosecutor John Flannery is one of the over 1,100 former Justice Department lawyers and prosecutors who signed a letter demanding Attorney General Bill Barr resign after intervening to reduce the sentence of a close friend of President Donald Trump.

Flannery said that the backlash of Barr's intrusion is there are many who feel isolated or intimidated from speaking out against illegal or unethical things they witness.

"What they're doing is trying to erase the parallel case that was just the subject of the impeachment, because what [Roger] Stone is charged with was interfering in our election in 2016," explained Flannery. "And then obstructing the investigation by the Intelligence Committee into that interference, and causing them to lie and threaten and so forth. So, they'd like to erase that."
