The Fake President of the United Russian Mafia tried to fire Mueller after firing the head of the FBI. Boss Man Maniac was making secret deals with the Russians that conducted cyber warfare against the U.S. and the Democratic Party. This should be of grave concern to Secretary Kirsten Nielsen who should be helping her boss go after Russia, whose leaders are ENJOYING this OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. These real dangerous foreigners are making plans to attack American Voters, once more, by joining in on the attack by the Evangelicals, Republicans, and Fox News. They will blend right in on facebook.

That’s Liar Von Trump sucking up to Robert Jeffress – for yet another mulligan! Jeffress called Mormonism a “cult”. He is Trump’s “spiritual advisor” and is telling the Sinful President of the United he is sinning for a divine reason, and God is on his side……and, pay no mind to Secular Law. Jeffress is the co-pusher of the Big Red Button that blows up the world. If We The People back Von Liar into a corner, this Priggish Pip Squeak will slap us all silly.

“Jeffress has also called Islam and Mormonism heresies “from the pit of hell,” suggested that the Catholic church was led astray by Satan, accused Obama of “paving the way” for the Antichrist and spread false statistics about the prevalence of HIV among gays, who he said live a “miserable” and “filthy” lifestyle.

“Megachurch pastor and Donald Trump’s spiritual advisor Robert Jeffress has fired back at Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska after he seemingly accused the pastor of politicizing Sunday worship by inviting conservative, pro-Trump Fox News host Sean Hannity to speak at First Baptist Dallas this Sunday.

Sasse posted his disapproval of Hannity being invited to speak at the 12,000-member megachurch during service this Sunday in a series of tweets on Saturday. In the first tweet, the senator asked: “Christians: Are we really this ignorant of the Scriptures?” He cited John 18:36: “Jesus answered, ‘My Kingdom is not of this world.'”

In another tweet, the 45-year-old Sasse added: “By the way, we’re talking about Sunday here… (You can be free from politics.)”

Sasse also retweeted a tweet from Michael Wear, who headed the faith outreach of President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign, which referred to the Hannity invite, “Politics as Religion, Religion as Politics.”

Kirstjen Michele Nielsen (/ˈkɪərstʃən/;[1] born May 14, 1972)[2] is an American attorney and national security expert who is the current United States Secretary of Homeland Security.

Nielsen is a former Principal Deputy White House Chief of Staff to President Donald Trump,[3] as well as chief of staff to John F. Kelly during his term as Secretary of Homeland Security.

On December 5, 2017 she was confirmed by the Senate,[4] and was sworn in the next day.

Tony Perkins should be arrested for aiding and abetting the sworn enemy of America – and Jesus – along with Nielsen. These traitors knew about Reagan calling Russia the Evil Empire. Tony bids Christians to lower their Ring of Prayer Protection, while Nielsen tries to make Democrats appear deluded. Is Two Shoes Tony going to grant Trump another mulligan, or, get Nielsen to do his dirty work – in the name of Jesus?

Here’s Tony throwing a washrag on our economy. Putin is rooting our economy fail, too! Does Tony want to see the FBI disgraced? Did he and the Trump’s Holy Handlers know their Rapture Ready King Pin tried to fire the ex-head of the FBI? Trump also lied to ALL the American People by telling us he never considered firing Mueller. Does Jesus approve of Trumps lying to ALL God’s people – ALL OVER THE WORLD?

Read the insulting demands Von Liar  makes to Theresa May. He sound like a occupying Nazi General. The Brits will not make this BIG LIAR feel at home. They don’t have to listen to his lies.

Evangelical Leaders are telling The Whole World  Trump is one with the Lord, and, he can be believed and TRUSTED! They Republican Party has given Their Master – fifty mulligans – and is on the brink of ruin!

I just checked in on Tucker Carlson, and he is holding a trivia conquest! All their crazy-ass talking points – are mute! Fox – is finished! However, this is one sign the Rapture is near.

WASHINGTON — President Trump ordered the firing last June of Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, according to four people told of the matter, but ultimately backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive.

The West Wing confrontation marks the first time Mr. Trump is known to have tried to fire the special counsel. Mr. Mueller learned about the episode in recent months as his investigators interviewed current and former senior White House officials in his inquiry into whether the president obstructed justice.

Amid the first wave of news media reports that Mr. Mueller was examining a possible obstruction case, the president began to argue that Mr. Mueller had three conflicts of interest that disqualified him from overseeing the investigation, two of the people said.

First, he claimed that a dispute years ago over fees at Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., had prompted Mr. Mueller, the F.B.I. director at the time, to resign his membership. The president also said Mr. Mueller could not be impartial because he had most recently worked for the law firm that previously represented the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Finally, the president said, Mr. Mueller had been interviewed to return as the F.B.I. director the day before he was appointed special counsel in May.

After receiving the president’s order to fire Mr. Mueller, the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, refused to ask the Justice Department to dismiss the special counsel, saying he would quit instead, the people said. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing a continuing investigation.

Mr. McGahn disagreed with the president’s case and told senior White House officials that firing Mr. Mueller would have a catastrophic effect on Mr. Trump’s presidency. Mr. McGahn also told White House officials that Mr. Trump would not follow through on the dismissal on his own. The president then backed off.

Ty Cobb, who manages the White House’s relationship with Mr. Mueller’s office, said in a statement, “We decline to comment out of respect for the Office of the Special Counsel and its process.”

Mr. McGahn, a longtime Republican campaign finance lawyer in Washington who served on the Federal Election Commission, was the top lawyer on Mr. Trump’s campaign. He has been involved in nearly every key decision Mr. Trump has made — like the firing of the former F.B.I. director — that is being scrutinized by Mr. Mueller.

Mr. McGahn was also concerned that firing the special counsel would incite more questions about whether the White House was trying to obstruct the Russia investigation.

Around the time Mr. Trump wanted to fire Mr. Mueller, the president’s legal team, led then by his longtime personal lawyer in New York, Marc E. Kasowitz, was taking an adversarial approach to the Russia investigation. The president’s lawyers were digging into potential conflict-of-interest issues for Mr. Mueller and his team, according to current and former White House officials, and news media reports revealed that several of Mr. Mueller’s prosecutors had donated to Democrats.

Mr. Mueller could not legally have considered political affiliations when making hiring decisions. But for Mr. Trump’s supporters, it reinforced the idea that, although Mr. Mueller is a Republican, he had assembled a team of Democrats to take down the president.

Another option that Mr. Trump considered in discussions with his advisers was dismissing the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, and elevating the department’s No. 3 official, Rachel Brand, to oversee Mr. Mueller. Mr. Rosenstein has overseen the investigation since March, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

Mr. Trump has significantly ratcheted back his criticisms of Mr. Mueller since he hired Mr. Cobb for his legal team in July. A veteran of several high-profile Washington controversies, Mr. Cobb has known Mr. Mueller for decades, dating to their early careers in the Justice Department.

He advised Mr. Trump that he had nothing to gain from combat with Mr. Mueller, a highly respected former prosecutor and F.B.I. director who has subpoena power as special counsel. Since Mr. Cobb’s arrival, the White House has operated on the premise that the quickest way to clear the cloud of suspicion was to cooperate with Mr. Mueller, not to fight him.

Nonetheless, Mr. Trump has wavered for months about whether he wants to fire Mr. Mueller, whose job security is an omnipresent concern among the president’s legal team and close aides. The president’s lawyers, including Mr. Cobb, have tried to keep Mr. Trump calm by assuring him for months, amid new revelations about the inquiry, that it is close to ending.

Mr. Trump has long demonstrated a preoccupation with those who have overseen the Russia investigation. In March, after Mr. McGahn failed to persuade Attorney General Jeff Sessions not to recuse himself from the inquiry, Mr. Trump complained that he needed someone loyal to oversee the Justice Department.

The former F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said Mr. Trump asked him for loyalty and encouraged him to drop an investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn. Mr. Comey said he sidestepped those requests. He was soon fired.

In an interview with The New York Times in the Oval Office in July, the president pointedly kept open the option of firing Mr. Mueller, saying that the special counsel would be passing a red line if his investigation expanded to look at Mr. Trump’s finances. Mr. Trump said he never would have made Mr. Sessions the attorney general if he had known he would recuse himself from the investigation.

Last month, as Republicans were increasing their attacks on the special counsel, Mr. Trump said in an interview with The Times that he believed Mr. Mueller was going to treat him fairly.

“No, it doesn’t bother me because I hope that he’s going to be fair,” Mr. Trump said in response to a question about whether it bothered him that Mr. Mueller had not yet ended his investigation. “I think that he’s going to be fair.”
