‘Only So Much Firing You Can Do’: Krauthammer Says Trump Can’t Fire His Way Out of Russia Probe

President Donald Trump turned the words “You’re fired!” into a national catchphrase on The Apprentice. But according to one conservative pundit, those words may not save him anymore. Appearing Wednesday on Special Report with Bret Baier, Charles Krauthammer doesn’t believe that Donald Trump can fire his way out of trouble on the Robert Mueller-led Russia probe. “There’s only so much firing you can do,” Krauthammer said. “And the reason we are in dangerous territory for Trump is once you’ve done the big one, once you get rid of the director of the FBI, which is pretty unusual, then you don’t have a lot of bullets left.” Krauthammer does believe the appointment of Mueller as special counsel is a short-term political win because it gives him an excuse not to answer questions on the matter. But long-term, Krauthammer believes it is problematic for Trump to have Mueller the show. “I think the vulnerability is that Mueller can take this anywhere he wants for as long as he wants and no one is in control except Mueller.” Watch above, via Fox News.
