Trump Will Fire Mueller Because He Knows Republicans Won’t Do a Damn Thing About It

If you’re wondering to yourself, “Will Donald Trump fire Robert Mueller?,” the answer is yes — it’s going to happen. Granted this is just my opinion, but all political analysis is largely based on opinion combined with experience, education, and even just some good ol’ fashion common sense.

I have no doubt that Trump’s guilty of something. Whether it’s collusion, money laundering, or something else entirely, I absolutely believe he’s committed some sort of crime(s). Everything about his behavior tells me we’re dealing with a guilty man who’s terrified that the truth about him is about to be discovered.

I’m sorry, but innocent people don’t push conspiracies, try to obstruct justice, claim the investigation into them is all a “witch hunt,” and slander those investigating them — that’s how guilty people act.

I obviously don’t know Trump personally, but I do feel like I know the type of person he is. Which is someone who’ll go to any lengths, and try to take down anyone, just as long as he feels it’s in his own best interests. If it’s between his possible removal from office — and being sent to prison — or firing special counselor Robert Mueller, triggering possibly the biggest political scandal in our nation’s history, I think Trump would burn this country to the ground just as long as he felt that gave him his best chance to save his own backside.

As I’ve said for months, the moment Trump believes Mueller’s on the brink of finding out the truth about whatever he’s clearly trying to keep hidden, that’s when he’ll “go nuclear” and take the necessary steps to get rid of him.

I believe Mueller knows this, which is part of the reason why I feel he’s taking his time, being as thorough as possible, setting a solid foundation before he really goes after Trump’s inner circle, which will likely be what leads to him being fired. Then when that happens he hopes the work he’s done will already be enough to expose this “president” for the crook and fraud that he is.

While Republican lawmakers really can’t stop Trump from getting rid of Mueller, this “president” is well aware of the type of spineless sheep most of them are. He knows that despite some of their “tough talk” about firing Mueller being a catastrophic mistake, when it happens — they’re not going to do a damn thing.

Why wouldn’t Trump think this?

We already saw the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee’s joke of an “investigation” abruptly wrap up in what Democrats have called a farce that didn’t even interview key witnesses to answer questions that still remain largely unanswered. A committee that’s led by a pro-Trump stooge in Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) who spent the last year trying to obstruct and undermine the “investigation” at every turn.

Sure, some Senate Republicans have spoken out a little more directly against Trump, especially as it relates to the possibility that he could eventually fire Mueller, but I don’t believe for a moment that they’ll actually do anything if he eventually does get rid of the special counselor. Who’s going to speak out forcefully against it and take the lead in pushing for Trump to be removed? John McCain? Give the man a break. Jeff Flake? He’ll use it to further his political ambitions, but that’s about it. Orrin Hatch or Lindsey Graham? Yeah, ok.

Since Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP, time after time we’ve seen Republicans condemn something Trump’s said or done, only to tuck their tail between their legs and bow down to him whenever it was time to turn words into actions.

Despite many of them condemning his crude comments, inexcusable behavior, racism, bigotry, and complete lack of any hint of moral values — they still lined up to vote for him during the 2016 election and have defended him ever since.


This “president” has been allowed to say and do whatever he’s wanted to do because Republicans, who control both the House and Senate, haven’t done a damn thing to stand up to him. While it’s obvious most of them know he’s completely unqualified and unfit to be “president,” they’ve decided that party loyalty — and their fear of ticking off his supporters, thus putting their political careers in jeopardy — matter more than protecting this country from a madman who seems to have more loyalty toward Russia than he does the United States of America.

The only reason why Trump wouldn’t eventually fire Mueller is if he felt doing so would cause an even bigger political nightmare for him. And while it most definitely should, he knows Republican lawmakers, when push comes to shove, aren’t going to do a damn thing when he eventually takes the step to fire the special counselor.

This cowardice and refusal to hold this “president” accountable is a huge reason why the 2018 midterms couldn’t be more important. This is the chance Democrats have to take control back in Congress to put people in charge who will hold Trump accountable.

Otherwise, if Republicans keep a majority control in both the House and the Senate this fall, all we’re doing is giving Donald Trump continued free rein to do whatever the hell he wants because the GOP is filled with a bunch of politicians who don’t have the courage or patriotism to stand up to him or make him answer for anything.

We cannot allow that to happen.
