They want Mueller fired because they don't want him to uncover the dirt they already know about. By firing him though it makes Trump look even more guilty.

#MAGA!

There's more, but it's enough to get Comey and Mueller justification to investigate.

Yep, that is it. Trump isn't guilty at all and there is no way he brought this on himself. Lock up Clinton and Obama!

Nothing to see here so move along.

It's an investigation. Deal with it. No one is ABOVE the LAW.

It's has been exposed. Hillary's emails, their coverup, Komy's decision to find her not guilty before the investigation was finished, its all exposed and there has been no accountability. Disgusting.

So is your spelling and grammar, but that's not the point.

This is an investigation born from the Russian interference with our election process, not Hillary's e-mail server. That framework was set by Trumps acting AG.

I'm sure ( and hope ) if Mueller and Team find conspiracy on either side it will come out.

Indeed. If Trump and his henchmen are innocent, why all the fired-up attempts (via Fox, Bannon, etc.) to smear Mueller and his investigation? After all, Republicans have trusted and respected Mueller for a long time. What--he's suddenly corrupt? Yeah, no.

As to corruption, it was not the RNC caught cheating and trying to undermine certain candidates in favor of the big money corrupt one.
Additionally, if it is proved that this whole Russian false narrative was funded by Hillary & Co (which may have led to the initial probe, fisa warrant and the eventual special council), I suspect you will just bury your head in the sand and ignore how corrupt the Democrats have been.

Komy?

You might want to step out of that right wing media echo chamber once in awhile. There is more to the world than the fake Clinton cover ups and such.

LOL, good catch! Mister Invisible Pence pretends and acts like he knew nothing at all about anything during the transition just might get tripped up by his own e-mails. I have always suspected that the reason given by Trump to fire Flynn -- that he lied to Pence -- was a fake smokescreen meant to protect Pence. Flynn didn't lie to Pence, Pence knew what Flynn was doing the whole time. He had to have, he ran the transition and Flynn was a top team member.
