“Are Trump’s efforts to fire Mueller obstruction of justice? ‘Bologna,’ says former Whitewater counsel Robert Ray”
Former Whitewater independent counsel Robert Ray told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto that President Donald Trump attempting to fire the special counsel Robert Mueller is not obstruction of justice.
“In the current environment, people are actually contending that an effort or an endeavor to fire special counsel Mueller would constitute the crime of obstruction of justice. My view is that’s bologna, that’s just wrong,” Ray said Monday.
Congressional lawmakers are divided over legislation to protect Mueller at time when reports suggest that Trump considered dismissing him in June.
