CNN’s Anderson Cooper offered a humorous suggestion to reports that President Donald Trump might fire special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating allegations of ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“Jared Kushner could take it over,” the host of “Anderson Cooper 360” quipped on Monday night.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin added that Kushner was already pretty busy handling Middle East peace.
Cooper’s crack was in response to Matthew Whitaker, executive director of the conservative Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust, who warned about what could happen to the investigation if Trump fired Mueller.
“Eventually, this will put it in the hands of the career professionals at the Department of Justice, which is not what this president wants for sure,” Whitaker said.
