    How Trump could use Scott Pruitt to fire Mueller

    Try it Donald .. It's be tons of fun!

    The straightest shot he has is by using something called the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. This 1998 law allows Trump to fill a vacated Cabinet position with any person who has been confirmed by the Senate for another position. So, if Sessions were to leave ó how he leaves could matter a lot, but put that aside for the moment ó Trump could install, say, Pruitt in his place, since the Senate already confirmed Pruitt for EPA administrator. And Pruitt could serve for up to 210 days without Senate confirmation ó long enough to fire Mueller and all his staff.

    If Trump wants to use the Vacancies Act maneuver, he could pick any Senate-confirmed figure in his administration. But Pruitt is in some ways the ideal candidate. Heís a lawyer, deeply loyal to Trump, and, most importantly, is not hung up on following ethical rules or norms. Indeed, Pruitt is Trumpís most flamboyantly corrupt Cabinet official, with new scandals coming out daily. Pruittís ability to withstand constant revelations of unethical and/or illegal behavior is a strong sign of his willingness to carry out Trumpís wildly unethical goal of turning the Justice Department into his personal rent-a-cops.

    that could work. But, let's face it, it's too late to fire Mueller. He's already likely anticipated Trump's every move and set up safeguards. Trump is no match for Mueller. One is a seasoned , meticulous, unwavering professional. The other is a orange, man baby, imbecile who combs his hair like he's lost his friggin mind.

    You got that right my friend. Bob updates his findings daily and has everything ready to launch on a hair trigger.

    Both to states for prosecution (where Trump can't pardon his thugs) to congress, and to the general public.

    He'll walk out of there with a poop eating possum grin on his face!

    don't get me wrong. Trump wouldn't surprise anyone if he still tried to fire Mueller. Pruitt could work as AG. Except, he appears to be rather idiotic when it comes to legal matters.
