Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs Trashes Mueller: ‘I Would Fire the SOB in Three Seconds’

On Fox Business Network tonight, Lou Dobbs and Gregg Jarrett went on a tear against special counsel Robert Mueller minutes after President Trump did the same.

He denounced the “witch hunt” and even said it’s an “attack on our country” in remarks responding to the FBI raid on his lawyer Michael Cohen‘s office.

Dobbs –– one of the most pro-Trump voices on both Fox and Fox Business –– said, “We’re witnessing an orchestrated assault on the President of the United States.”

Jarrett joined Dobbs to say, “The Attorney General is incompetent, the FBI is corrupt, and Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein are unethical and abusive of the legal process. All of them deserve to be fired, not that I’m suggesting the President should do it.”

They were appalled by the FBI raid today, with Jarrett denouncing the “thuggish tactics” by Mueller.

“He had a reputation for being a reckless and egregiously abusive investigator and prosecutor,” Dobbs said. “But now he is taking it to a new level. Immediately we recall the pre-dawn raid of Manafort’s home… This is now a man that has to be brought under control, it would seem to me. Frankly, I can’t imagine, because each of us has to come to terms with our own heart and conscience –– I would fire the SOB in three seconds if it were me.”

Jarrett agreed that he deserves it.

On a related note, there was a report just last week that President Trump loves Dobbs and his show, “asks West Wing aides and confidants if they’ve seen specific, recent segments of Dobbs’ program,” regularly chats with him, and even lets him chime in on “senior-level meetings on issues such as trade and tax policy” via speakerphone.
