The View Goes Off on Trump Attacking Mueller Probe: ‘Where’s Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan?!’

The View lit up this morning over President Trump attacking the Mueller probe amid concerns that special counsel Robert Mueller may get fired.

Some Republicans like Lindsey Graham have warned Trump against it, and Paul Ryan put out a statement through a spokesperson saying Mueller’s team “should be able to do their job.”

Joy Behar wasn’t too impressed, asking why GOP leaders aren’t saying more.

Meghan McCain said Trey Gowdy‘s warning is pretty significant, while Sunny Hostin noted the appearance of trying to obstruct when you’re being investigated for obstruction looks pretty bad.

Behar called Graham a “notorious flip-flopper” and said she doesn’t know if she can believe him on his claim plenty of other Republicans are with him on this, asking, “Where’s Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan?”

McCain said it would not be “logical” for Mueller to be fired because there would be “absolute chaos” on both sides.

Behar also asked where all the Republican urgency about Russia is. She quipped that maybe Trump will start caring about Russian attempts to hack the power grid if he suddenly can’t watch Fox News anymore.
