The Deep State has lashed out against President Trump by springing a plan into motion to remove him from office.
But Trump is fighting back.
Trey Gowdy was asked about the President firing one prominent member of the Deep State and what he said turned heads across America.
Trump supporters are furious with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller who recently signed off on the FBI raiding the offices and home of Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
Speculation has swirled around Washington that Trump will fire Rosenstein.
Trey Gowdy appeared on Fox News Sunday and addressed the matter.
He said Trump would be right to fire Rosenstein for the FBI slow-walking Congress’ requests for documents about how they started the Russia investigation.
But he also said that Trump should not fire him to shut down the Mueller probe.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina said it would be unwise of President Donald Trump to fire deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein while appearing on “Fox News Sunday.”
“The president is the head of the executive branch. He doesn’t have to run his hiring and firing decisions by us,” Gowdy told Chris Wallace. “If he’s upset with Rod Rosenstein because Rod Rosenstein is not producing documents to Congress — that’s a legitimate thing to be upset about.”
“If he’s upset with Rod Rosenstein because he wants to get at Bob Mueller and that’s the way he’s going to do it — taking the advice of Steve Bannon, which I would strongly recommend against, then no, I don’t think that’s appropriate,” Gowdy concluded. “Does [Trump] have the power to get rid of Rod Rosenstein? Yes, he does. Do I think it’s wise? I don’t.”
Members of the media – as well as their allies in the anti-Trump Deep State – would love for the President to sack Rosenstein and have a new deputy attorney general end the Mueller probe or even fire the special counsel.
But Trump wisely resisted this option.
He knows firing Mueller is a trap.
Mueller has nothing on collusion with Russia or obstruction of justice.
The only way Congress would move against him would be if he fired Mueller.
Weak-kneed Republicans – and anti-Trump Republicans who hate the President – would use the firing and ensuing media firestorm as an excuse to act on their long held desire to rid themselves of Trump and vote for impeachment.
All Trump supporters want to see the Mueller witch hunt come to an end.
But the President knows the media and his other enemies are trying to bait him into firing Mueller and giving them the excuse they need to move against him.
