Peggy Noonan: ‘If Mueller Were Fired, the Pushback Would Be Huge’

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan said if President Donald Trump fired FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, it would be “a huge scandal.”

Noonan said, “Oh my God if Mueller were fired, the pushback would be huge. It would be a huge scandal.”

She added, “Can I say part of this pushback you see on Fox and other stations and outlets, part of it is, I very much remember ‘Let’s kill Ken Starr!’ in the late 1990s. It was the Democratic party and Democratic media trying to kill the Republican special prosecutor. That said, it is so important. So much depends on the Mueller investigation that it is not bad … if people look at it in a strict way. And just make sure everything is on the up-and-up, and fully credible, and not partisan political creepiness. They’ve got to be clean, or it won’t, in the end, be believed.”
