Trump seethes over FBI raid, ponders firing those he blames

(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump was so incensed by the FBI's raid of his personal attorney's office and hotel room that he's privately pondered firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and publicly mused about ousting special counsel Robert Mueller.

The raid, in which agents seized attorney Michael Cohen's records on topics including a $130,000 payment to a porn actress who alleges she had sex with Trump, left the president more angry than advisers had seen him in weeks, according to five people familiar with the president's views but not authorized to discuss them publicly.

Trump tweeted Tuesday that "Attorney-client privilege is dead!" Nervous White House aides expressed new fears about the president's unpredictability in the face of the Cohen raid, which he viewed as an assault on a longtime defender and a sign that Mueller's probe into potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign was "going too far."

  1. Same, exact, tactic that took down US Senator Ted Stevens. Trump should consult with Alaskan US Senator Lisa Murkowski, it was she who headed up much of the vindication of Ted Stevens. Only it came after Ted had died. And by the way, how did Ted die? What caused that? Ask Lisa.
