President Trump Lowers The Boom On Mueller With Announcement
President Donald Trump confirmed information for reporters on Friday and then he dropped a bomb on special counsel Robert Mueller.
Speaking to reporters as he was preparing to board Air Force One he confirmed that he would appoint William Barr as Attorney general.
He also said he would nominate former Fox News host Heather Nauert as ambassador to the United Nations.
He did not announce that Chief of staff Gen. John Kelly was resigning or being fired.
But he did tease that he would make a major announcement on Saturday.
“I want to confirm that Bill Barr, one of the most respected jurists in the country, highly respected lawyer, former attorney general under the Bush Administration, a terrific man, a terrific person, a brilliant man, I did not know him until recently when I went through the process of looking at people. And he was my first choice from day one,” the president said.
“Respected by Republicans and respected by Democrats. He will be nominated for the United States attorney general and hopefully that process will go very quickly, and I think it will go very quickly. And I have seen very good things about him even over the last day or so when people thought it might be him,” he said.
“So Barr will be nominated for the United States attorney general position. I also want to inform you that Heather Nauert, who has done a great job working with Mike Pompeo and others at the state Department, Heather Nauert will be nominated (as United Nations ambassador),” he said.
“She’s done work with Nikki Haley to replace Nikki at the United Nations. She’s very talented, very smart, very quick, and I think she’s going to be respected by all,” President Trump told reporters.
“So Heather Nauert will be nominated for the ambassador to the United Nations. Those are two very big ones,” he said prior to teasing another announcement.
“I have another one for tomorrow I will be announcing at the Army/Navy game. It will have to do with the joint chiefs of staff and succession. I look forward to telling you, and I will see you later. I will see you in Kansas,” he said.
But then the president laid a bombshell on Twitter.
“We will be doing a major Counter Report to the Mueller Report. This should never again be allowed to happen to a future President of the United States!” he wrote.
That is going to be fantastic.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our main websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
