  • Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Monday said special
    counsel Robert Mueller is on a “jihad” against President Donald
    Trump.
  • Mueller is “behaving like nothing so much as a
    prosecutor, he is more, if you will, he’s on a jihad of some
    sort, and it is an ideologically inspired jihad,” Dobbs
    said.
  • Mueller’s probe into Russian election interference has
    led to indictments or guilty pleas from
    32 people
    , including former Trump advisers, and three
    companies. 

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Monday said special counsel Robert
Mueller, who is leading the investigation into Russia’s
interference in the US presidential election, is on a “jihad”
against President Donald Trump.

Mueller is “behaving like nothing so much as a prosecutor,
he is more, if you will, he’s on a jihad of some sort, and it is
an ideologically inspired jihad,”
Dobbs said
on “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”

“The hell with Mueller!” added Dobbs, a vocal Trump
supporter. “The hell with what he wants. This is not a game. This
nation deserves full-time leadership and no further effort to
subvert, to overthrow the presidency of Donald J. Trump. It’s
ignorant and it’s stupid beyond disbelief.”

Mueller, a former FBI director and decorated Vietnam War
veteran, was praised by members of both sides of the political
aisle upon being tapped by Deputy Attorney General Rod
Rosenstein. But many of Trump’s defenders, and even the
president himself, have largely turned against the man at the
center of one of the most publicized investigations in recent
memory.

The probe into Russian election interference and whether
anyone from the Trump campaign colluded with Kremlin officials
has led to indictments or guilty pleas from 32 people, including
former Trump advisers. 

One of those advisers, former Trump campaign chairman Paul
Manafort, will stand trial on Tuesday for
alleged financial crimes
related to his work for Ukrainian
politicians. Manafort’s trial is the first to be sparked by
Mueller’s investigation, though it’s not directly related to his
time with Trump’s campaign. 

The White House has attempted to distance itself from
Manafort amid his legal troubles, downplaying the senior role he
had in the Trump campaign. 

Appearing on Fox News on Tuesday, White House counselor
Kellyanne Conway said Manafort only had a “brief
tenure”
with the Trump campaign, adding that Tuesday’s trial
“has nothing to do with collusion, Russia, nothing to do with the
Trump campaign.”
