President Trump has been under investigation since the early days of his presidency. However, according to Trump, he is not currently under investigation by anyone even thought special prosecutor Robert Mueller is spearheading a probe to look into the Trump campaigns ties with Russia to help interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
But Trump claims the collision is just a Democratic “hoax” in response to Trump beating Hillary Clinton in the election. But most see right through Trump’s attempt to deflect from his own shortcomings and scandals.
Speculation surrounding Trump’s plans to fire Mueller has been escalating ever since it was announced that Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted. The probe has also led to the indictments of Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Experts agree that more indictments are coming. But the question is: will any be for President Trump? The answer: most likely. And Trump seems to know that as he has allegedly attempted to fire Mueller last June just as he did with former FBI Director James Comey in 2017.
However, former GOP Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) called out 45 on his interesting behavior when it comes to the probe. Walsh asks the million dollar question: If Trump truly has nothing to hide, why does he keep trying to fire everyone that is investigating him.
Walsh took to Twitter to assert that Trump’s attempt to fire Mueller and Asst. FBI Director McCabe was an interesting strategy for “a guy who says he didn’t do anything wrong.”
“He fired FBI Dir Comey. He tried to fire Asst FBI Dir McCabe. He wanted to fire Att Gen Sessions. He ordered the firing of Special Counsel Mueller. I could go on,” Walsh wrote on Twitter. “For a guy who says he didn’t do anything wrong, why does he try to fire everyone who’s investigating him?”
Good point. Do you agree with Walsh?
He fired FBI Dir Comey. He tried to fire Asst FBI Dir McCabe. He wanted to fire Att Gen Sessions. He ordered the firing of Special Counsel Mueller. I could go on.
For a guy who says he didn’t do anything wrong, why does he try to fire everyone who’s investigating him?
