Pelosi Claims Mueller Was Fired

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed in an email to supporters last week that special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, had been fired.
After much speculation that President Donald Trump was going to fire Mueller following the FBI raid on the president’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, Pelosi sent out an email titled “Mueller FIRED” and asked supporters to donate to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
“I’m so furious I can barely write this email,” the California Democrat wrote in the message, according to the Washington Examiner. “President Trump is inches away from firing Robert Mueller and derailing the entire Russia investigation.”
“I need a MASSIVE 24-hour fundraising surge to send them a powerful message: If they let Trump fire Mueller, we’ll kick each and EVERY one of them out of office,” she said.
Hyperlinks within the email allowed recipients to “immediately” donate to the DCCC in increments of $1, $35, $50, $100, $250 or any other amount as they saw fit.
The email was sent out Friday, just a day after Trump indicated that Mueller was not, in fact, going to be fired.
