White House is Freaking out that Don Jr. Might Be Mueller’s Next Target
According to White House sources speaking to Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman, West Wing insiders are starting to freak out because they believe that Donald Trump, Jr. is going to be the next person taken down by Robert Mueller’s investigation. In fact, they are afraid that new indictments could be handed out the day after the midterms. Sherman points out that the silence from Rudy Giuliani is also not an accident, and it is related to the collective fear at the White House. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
Republicans warn Trump not to shut down Russian inquiry
As Capitol Hill reels from Donald Trump’s surprise firing of attorney general Jeff Sessions, a handful of Republican senators are warning the president not to get any ideas about shutting down the Mueller investigation.
“The one thing this does make certain is that the Mueller investigation into Russian meddling in elections will continue to its end, as it should, because no new Attorney General can be confirmed who will stop that investigation,” said Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) in a statement (emphasis mine).
