Trump warned against firing Wray

NewsmaxPresident Donald Trump's White House counsel has warned him that firing FBI Director Christopher Wray could lead to legal consequences for him and his administration, NBC News reported on Wednesday.

NBC's sources, who were unidentified but said to be a senior administration official with direct knowledge of the discussion and another official who was familiar with it, said that White House counsel Pat Cipollone recently led his attorneys in "strongly" advising Trump not to fire Wray. They noted that if he did so, it could create the impression that the position, which usually acts independently of the White House, is subject to a "loyalty test."

This is disgusting. Trump should be free to fire anyone in his administration without facing any legal consequences whatever, and Wray has certainly earned an unpleasant exit from the Trump administration through his inaction and determination to keep a lid on SpyGate matters.
