How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Trump Reportedly Considering Asking Sessions to Prosecute Special Counsel Mueller

Donald Trump has considered asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to prosecute Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the president, his former aides and Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

NBC reports that Trump told friends that prosecuting Mueller is a better alternative to firing him because a termination “would not only create a firestorm, it would play right into Mueller’s hands,” according an unidentified Trump companion. 

Here’s how it would work: ‘We’re sorry, Mr. Mueller, you won’t be able to run the federal grand jury today because he has to go testify to another federal grand jury,'” said one Trump adviser.

It’s unclear what charges Mueller would face since he was appointed by Trump’s Justice Department.

Numerous news reports last week revealed that Trump told the White House counsel that he wanted to fire Mueller, but the attorney threatened to resign if the president pushed forward with that plan. Even some Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, said firing Mueller would likely end in impeachment

Trump and his allies in Congress have chosen a third option – discrediting the investigation as an anti-Trump crusade.

The White House didn’t respond to questions about the possibility of prosecuting Mueller, whose investigation so far has produced indictments against four former Trump associates.
