Default Trump tried to fire Mueller in December: report

Quote:
President Trump attempted to fire special counsel Robert Mueller in December, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Trump reportedly tried to fire Mueller after he became enraged over reports that the special counsel had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for records on Trumpís finances.

However, Muellerís team told the White House that the reports were inaccurate and the president backed off from the move, the Times reported. Trumpís lawyers also did not believe the reports to be accurate, because Trump did not keep his money in the bank.

The report comes the same day that the White House said Trump believes he has the power to fire Mueller.

The threat to fire Mueller in December was not Trump's first. The Times previously reported that the president sought to have Mueller dismissed last June, but ultimately backed down after White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign.

Legal experts say Trump does not have the power to fire the special counsel directly. Under Department of Justice (DOJ) regulations, that authority falls to the department official in charge of the investigation ó in this case, Rosenstein.
if no money in Deutsche bank then why all the fuss?
