Twitter Flips Out Over Trump Lawyer Calling for End to Mueller Probe: ‘Legal Attack’
President Trump‘s personal lawyer John Dowd called for the Mueller probe to be shut down today, and such a stunning statement immediately lit up Twitter on Saturday morning.
This is Pres Trump’s on-record legal attack coming out of the late night firing of a fact witness to potential Trump obstruction. It’s all out in the open. https://t.co/pwJo2JKXu4

Here it is, the point all of the attacks on law enforcement by Trump, Nunes, Fox News and the rest have been inevitably building to. Red alert time. https://t.co/httpljrSYA

There are multiple lies in Dowd"s statement, but that aside, is this also Trump's position? I thought their stance was they're cooperating. https://t.co/l16kQ72tCT

The president's lawyer seizes on the disciplining of McCabe for something that has nothing to do with the Mueller investigation to say the investigation should be ended. Not that it should be completed quickly (their previous stance), but that it should be ended. This is ominous. https://t.co/FbIvcVAuRI

All part of a strategy to publicly pressure Rosenstein to stop the Mueller investigation https://t.co/FgEJohXUNO

Trump's lawyer John Dowd calls on Rosenstein to terminate the Mueller investigation.
Dowd does not limiting his words to the investigation of the president's conduct — he wants the whole thing shut down. https://t.co/nigS5RIQrE

Wow. A new chapter in this investigation — but perhaps an entirely predictable one. https://t.co/iWSfR3BwLw

This is where Trump is going with his firing spree. Be woke!
“Trump’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, told The Daily Beast on Saturday morning that he hopes Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will shut down the Mueller probe.” https://t.co/wTUl4X0mxv
