Boehner: Trump firing Mueller would be a ‘very bad idea’ (The Hill)

Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) says that President Trumpwould be making a big mistake if he ordered the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller or deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

In an interview with the "Today" show, Boehner says that firing Mueller would be a "bad idea" that would only land Trump in more trouble.

"It's a very bad idea. These are public servants who've got long careers, stand-up people, who are charged with an investigation, and it's real clear: Either there are facts, or there's not," Boehner said.
