So, you deny that if Trump were determined to fire him that he couldn't do it? Really?
I don't care if you were in the meeting when it was *discussed,* he didn't order him fired. If McGahn defied him and Trump wanted it done as badly as these breathless, Trump-hating "journalists" claim, he would have fired McGahn.
Ultimately, Trump *can* fire Mueller. There would be terrible political cost. But, he hasn't done it. I don't care how many wannabe Rachel Maddows say he did.
Sure...the Trump campaign meets with the Russians in order to collude, they have a guy connected to Russian oligarchs (Manafort) start running their campaign and replace Lewandowski for no apparent reason (after all they had just run the Republican primary), several Trump campaign people meet with Russians and lie about it, Flynn calls the Russian ambassador five times on the day Obama enacted sanctions against Russia in an effort to mollify Russia (and then lies about it to the FBI) Kushner meets with a Russian state bank that is under sanctions (and also tries to set up secret communications outside of US surveillance with the Russians) ...and then Trump fires Comey and then tries to fire Mueller (and oh repeatedly urged Senate Republicans to end the Russian investigation)...and to top it off Trump's contemptuously refuses to comply with additional sanctions against Russia which Congress had approved by 98-2 in the Senate and 417-5 in House (and he had signed into law) by merely repeating a list of Russian oligarchs from Forbes.
What is the price of tin foil right now? It seems like a good investment.
Emotion is no substitute for reason. I guess tin foil will do the trick though.
