Michael Schmidt: Trump Recognizes Mueller Is an Existential Threat to His Presidency
MATTHEWS: "Michael, let’s talk about the reporting here because I love the background. Does trump, Donald Trump the man, fear Bob Mueller the man?"
SCHMIDT: "I think that he recognizes that Mueller is an existential threat to his presidency and that not only is this something about Russian collusion and questions of ties between his campaign and Russia, but it is also something that is focused squarely on his time in office. The interactions with mcgahn, the efforts to influence sessions, why he fired Comey. He is incredibly frustrated with the Russia question but also realizes there’s all of these matters about his time in office that are being examined."
