Two highly criticized senators introduced a bill that would attempt to protect Robert Mueller from being fired by President Donald Trump, but it was struck down immediately after what Mitch McConnell just did. It was Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and his bipartisan teammate Cory Booker (D-NJ) who tried protecting Mueller from Trump’s very well-known wrath that ends in a “you’re fired” statement. The bill came into play because there’s belief that Mueller might be investigating the alleged collusion between Trump, or members of his campaign, and voices in Russia.
Mitch McConnell stepped in and blocked the bill from making it to the Senate floor, as he would not allow any bill that protected anyone from being protected from being fired. It appeared he specifically would not allow Mueller to be protected. Mueller might think he is untouchable when bipartisan senators team up and try to protect him, but McConnell isn’t letting it happen.
Truth Exam wrote about what McConnell told Neil Patrick Cavuto from Fox News: “Well, that’s not necessary. There’s no indication that Mueller’s going to be fired. I don’t think the president is going to do that,” McConnell said, despite Trump hinting that he would fire Mueller on numerous occasions. “And just as a practical matter, if we passed it, why would he sign it?”
When Cavuto asked him if he doesn’t think the president would or should entertain the bill, McConnel replied, “Well I don’t think he should fire Mueller and I don’t think he’s going to. So this is a piece of legislation that’s not necessary in my judgment,” McConnell said.
“Obviously, enough your colleagues fear it enough to say it should be in there,” Cavuto said.
“I’m the one who decides what we take to the floor,” McConnell said. “And the majority leader will not be having this on the floor of the Senate.”
“Would you be shocked if he did fire him?” Cavuto asked.
“Yes,” McConnell replied.
If President Trump wants to fire someone on account of them not being loyal to the American leader, or not serving their country as best as they can, then that’s up to him to do so. Trump ran for President under the terms he would drain the swamp and he’s been doing that since day one. People either resign or get fired under him while others remain working hard together to craft a unique presidency that so far appears to be doing a good job.
Some critics wonder if Trump is abusing powers by firing people, but one must remember that Trump needs to feel secure and be able to trust the people he works with. If he feels that members of his administration are not pulling their weight or working as hard as they can towards the greatness of America, then Trump should make the hard decisions which might include firing people or sending them off to new positions where they might be more effective in their duties.
The critics also wonder if Trump is becoming the swamp, but that criticism also comes from people who have joined into the resistance movement. That movement has spent the last year or so complaining, protesting, and going on social media sprees acting as if they have any power to impeach Trump on accusations or accounts that simply do not exist.
Other people have spent the last year enjoying the tax cuts, watching unemployment improve, and seeing record highs in the stock market. The people who aren’t complaining are too busy being productive and living their lives without worrying about politics.
President Trump has good intentions with his job and would not have ran for President of the United States if he had intentions of doing poorly in the White House. Trump is doing a great job so far and people keep trying to throw him under the bus because they’re still angry that Hillary lost the election of 2016. Those people have wasted a year complaining and they should be spending their time more productively to be better citizens of the United States.
The issues with Mueller and others trying to pin something on Trump is that they could potentially spend all four years not accomplishing anything but complaining. That means they’re earning a salary while not really working hard for it. That sounds like taxpayer money being wasted, which is something that some politicians are very good at.
How do you feel about the Trump vs. Mueller situation? Is there anything to it? Or is it just more smoke in the wind that will show nothing when it clears. What will happen if Trump actually fires Mueller? Will there be any backlash? Or will Mueller just go write a book like James Comey?
