A friend of President Trump, Christopher Ruddy said on Monday he believes Trump is thinking of dismissing a special prosecutor set to investigate Russia -- Robert Mueller, CNN writes. "I think he's thinking of firing a special advisor," Ruddy told PBS. "I think he's considering this option." A source close to the president said that many advise Trump against this move: "Many people are trying to talk Trump [VIDEO]out of it."

Trump's spokesman accused Ruddy of lying

White House Spokesperson Sean Spicer said, "Ruddy never spoke to the president about this issue. As far as this is concerned, only the president or his attorneys are authorized to comment." Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders just said, "Christopher Rudy talks only for himself."

Christopher Ruddy is the director of Newsmax Media and his comment is based on a conversation with one of Trump's attorneys.

When journalists asked about the conversation, Ruddy replied, "My statements are correct".

"Dismissing Robert Mueller would be a huge mistake, although I believe there is no justification for the Special Prosecutor," Ruddy added. Robert Mueller was ex-president's George Bush's set for FBI Director in 2001, and James Comey took over the office in 2013. The leader of the House of Representatives Adam Schiff said on Twitter "If the president would fire Bob Mueller, the Congress would immediately re-elect an independent lawyer and set up Bob Mueller. Please, do not waste our time in vain."

One of the comments on Twitter is: "Can you put James Comey in Mueller's place? That would be hilarious."

Gohmert claims it is all a big conspiracy

Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert on Sunday called for "massive layoffs" in the US Justice Ministry because he believes it is part of the "conspiracy to destroy President Trump." According to a Texas congressman, Gohmert, former FBI director James Comey "lied in last week's testimony that Trump was persuading him to end the investigation related to Russian interference in the US election."

"We have to bring to justice every single person Comey has talked to about this issue, because they all disagree with the president, and are, therefore against their own oath of duty and their own labor contracts," Louie Gohmert told Fox News.
