The White House has categorically denied rumors that Robert Mueller’s head is on the chopping block.
Christopher Ruddy, CEO of Newsmax Media and friend of Donald Trump, floated the notion on Monday that the President might dismiss special counsel Mueller.
“I think he’s considering, perhaps terminating the special counsel,” Ruddy said on PBS NewsHour. “I think he’s weighing that option. I think it’s pretty clear by what one of his lawyers said on television recently.”
“I personally think it would be a very significant mistake, even though I don’t think there’s a justification,” he added.

Needless to say, Ruddy’s comments caused quite a stir, but top Trump administration officials were out in force t0 claim the statement isn’t true.
“Mr. Ruddy never spoke to the President regarding this issue,” Press Secretary Sean Spicer said. “With respect to this subject, only the President or his attorneys are authorized to comment.”
“Chris speaks for himself,” a second senior administration official told the Daily Caller. “He did not meet or speak with POTUS today.”
The second official added that they were not aware of any meetings between Trump and Ruddy this week, though he was spotted exiting the West Wing Monday.
Ruddy’s statement had Twitter on fire:

Ruddy has doubled down on his claim, and fired back at Spicer for undermining one of the administrations “few allies.”
