I think he is weighing this option.” “I think it is quite clear from what he said one of his lawyers,” added ruddy, without explaining what exactly the lawyer trump and what statements he has in mind.
According to the head of Newsmax Media, a possible cause for the dismissal of Mueller may be a conflict of interest, as, according to him, the law firm which employs the former head of the FBI, represents the interests of family members trump.

The FBI is investigating the alleged “attempts of the Russian government to influence the presidential elections in 2016, as well as related issues”.
