On Wednesday, Frank Figliuzzi, former assistant director for Counterintelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation told MSNBC’s Katy Tur that special counsel Robert Muller has a ‘prosecutorial parachute’ set in place.
“Let’s talk about the intersection between Robert Mueller, Jeff Sessions, and Don McGahn,” Tur said. “Mr.McGahn was unsuccessful and the president erupted in anger in front of numerous White House officials.”
Figliuzzi said that President Donald Trump has not been held accountable for his actions.
“So we’re looking increasingly now at an unchecked president and no one left to even try to balance his actions out,” Figliuzzi said. “If that happens, the domino effect may start. So he’s talking increasingly about getting rid of Sessions. And we’re hearing prominent Republican senators kind of giving the blessing for that.”
Figliuzzi warned that firing Sessions will not fix Trump’s problems.
“The danger signal to me is we’re hearing people say, well, as long as he picks an attorney general who lets Mueller finish. Letting Mueller finish is only half the equation,” he said.
“How do you properly deal with Mueller’s and his potential request to subpoena the president for an interview and his potential request to indict a sitting president. If a new attorney general is there and he’s a lackey for this president, look out,” he added.
“I think there are plans being put in place. What I call prosecutorial parachute with maybe sealed cases tied up in those for certain state, U.S. state district attorney’s offices and various U.S. attorneys around the states. The clock is ticking.”
