Trump defends his decision to replace Don McGahn

Trump defended his decision to replace Don McGahn this morning, assuring us that the Mueller investigation has nothing to do with it:

The Rigged Russia Witch Hunt did not come into play, even a little bit, with respect to my decision on Don McGahn!

He also says that Jared and Ivanka had nothing to do with it either:

Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner had NOTHING to do with the so called “pushing out” of Don McGahn.The Fake News Media has it, purposely,so wrong! They love to portray chaos in the White House when they know that chaos doesn’t exist-just a “smooth running machine” with changing parts!



And lastly, with respect to McGahn, he says he’s very excited about the person who will replace him:

I am very excited about the person who will be taking the place of Don McGahn as White House Councel! I liked Don, but he was NOT responsible for me not firing Bob Mueller or Jeff Sessions. So much Fake Reporting and Fake News!

 
On the topic of Bruce Ohr, Trump says it’s unbelievable that he still works at the DOJ, which is another swipe at Sessions:

Wow, Nellie Ohr, Bruce Ohr’s wife, is a Russia expert who is fluent in Russian. She worked for Fusion GPS where she was paid a lot. Collusion! Bruce was a boss at the Department of Justice and is, unbelievably, still there!

 
Trump also went after CNN and NBC News pretty hard this morning:

The hatred and extreme bias of me by @CNN has clouded their thinking and made them unable to function. But actually, as I have always said, this has been going on for a long time. Little Jeff Z has done a terrible job, his ratings suck, & AT&T should fire him to save credibility!

What’s going on at @CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks – with @NBCNews being the worst. The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse. When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly!

I just cannot state strongly enough how totally dishonest much of the Media is. Truth doesn’t matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda. This includes fake books, which come out about me all the time, always anonymous sources, and are pure fiction. Enemy of the People!



And that wraps up most of what Trump tweeted this morning.
