Yesterday, Fox News commentator and radio host Todd Starnes reacted to the news that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election by urging President Trump to fire Mueller in order to put an end to his “political jihad” against the White House.
Starnes said on his radio show yesterday that when Attorney General Jeff Session recused himself from the Russia investigation, “it opened the door for Robert Mueller and his partisan cronies to come in and wage political jihad on the White House.”
“Bob Mueller is nothing more than a partisan hack,” Starnes added. “I believe this is an attempt by the Democrats … to overthrow a democratically elected president.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, I believe the president needs to take immediate action here,” he continued. “I believe he needs to go ahead, rip off the Band-Aid, rip of the duct tape and fire Bob Mueller because I see the end game here … We know how this is going to end and it’s not going to end well. It’s time to get rid of Bob Mueller and it’s time to get rid of his partisan cronies. It’s time to stop the jihad.”
