Lou Dobbs Says Trump Should ‘Take Control’ of Russia Probe: He ‘Still Has the Opportunity to Fire’ Mueller

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs demanded that Donald Trump “take control” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the administration and its ties to Russia, saying the president needs to fire him soon “because it’s ridiculous now.”

“The president still has the opportunity to fire this special counsel,” Dobbs said on tonight’s broadcast.

“No, he should not do that,” his guest Victoria Toensing — a lawyer and fierce Trump apologist — replied. “He needs to get a good attorney general there, somebody who has been confirmed before, somebody who is well respected in the legal community and that’s what he needs to do as soon as possible.”

However, Dobbs was not convinced, adding that the investigation “has got to end.”

“We go through this litany of assaults on common sense, decency, respect for the office, and it goes on — we blame Democrats? At some point we have got to blame ourselves,” Dobbs added in unusually negative commentary for one of the most pro-Trump pundits on TV. “This president has got to take control of this thing because it’s ridiculous now.”
