Priebus Disputes Trump Tried to Fire Mueller

Former Trump White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus disputed reports that Trump sought to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, NBC News reports.

Said Priebus: “Of all the things that we went through in the West Wing, I never felt that the president was going to fire the special counsel.”

First Read: “But note how Priebus repeatedly used the word ‘felt’ in the interview. As Hugh Hewitt described it on Meet the Press after the Priebus interview, ‘You can’t perjure yourself if you feel something. If you don’t remember something you can’t perjure yourself. So he’s been lawyered up. He’s obviously feeling like he’s not a target and he’s in the clear.'”
