According to a new report from the New York Times, last June, US President Donald Trump called for the firing of Robert Mueller III, the FBI investigator who has been probing him for the possible collusion between his Presidential campaign back in 2016 and the Russian government. However, he backed off when a White House counsel threatened to quit over the potential firing.

Mueller firing would echo Comey firing

If Trump fired Mueller for investigating him, it would echo when he fired James Comey, the Director of the CIA, for the same exact reason.

The Comey firing is most people’s speculation as to what will be the President’s grounds for impeachment, since it technically counts as obstruction of justice, which according to the US Constitution, is one of the things that can get a US President kicked out of the Oval Office.

Another thing that could get Trump impeached, ironically, is if Mueller’s FBI probe is successful and he discovers that the President’s campaign and its staff did collude with the Russian government to tweak the outcome of the election. He’s already gotten three staffers to admit to crimes involving Russia and the Trump campaign, so it’s only a matter of time before The Donald is brought to his knees.
