WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 3

Trump Goes After Mueller by Quoting His Ex-Lawyer: ‘You Are Screwing With the Work of the President’

President Trump went after Robert Mueller again tonight, this time by quoting one of his own former lawyers.

John Dowd left the Trump legal team weeks ago (and now Ty Cobb is leaving it too), and yesterday The Washington Post reported that at one point Mueller had raised the possibility of issuing a subpoena for Trump to go before a grand jury.

Dowd responded by saying, “This isn’t some game. You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.”

Which leads right into…

“This isn’t some game. You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.” John Dowd, March 2018. With North Korea, China, the Middle East and so much more, there is not much time to be thinking about this, especially since there was no Russian “Collusion.”

It is, perhaps, not a surprise that this exact quote was reported on-air by Fox News’ John Roberts minutes beforehand. You can watch that video above.
