Jen Psaki: I Don’t Think We Should Take Trump or His Supporters at Their Word He’s Not Going To Fire Mueller

‘I don’t think we should sit here and take Trump or even Trump supporters at their word that Trump is not going to go there and fire Mueller’

RUSH EXCERPT:
PSAKI: "I think the Democrats are probably calling for the wrong thing right now. There is legislation that worked its way through the Senate Judiciary Committee and approved that McConnell just did not bring to the floor that would protect Mueller. The house can certainly do the same thing. If they’re putting the right pressure points right now, they would be pushing to protect Mueller. I don’t think we should sit here and take Trump or even Trump supporters at their word that Trump is not going to go there and fire Mueller. He put Matt Whitaker in place, because Matt Whitaker is more sympathetic to his views on Mueller than Rosenstein. And that’s an important piece of this."
