Trump’s private correspondence with Mueller reveal ‘appreciation and greetings’

In public, President Trump has been openly critical of special counsel Robert Mueller’s witch hunt ‘investigation’ of everything from Russia’s role in the 2016 election to Mike Flynn to, apparently, whether or not Trump paid the proper amount of taxes on that lemonade stand he ran when he was eight.

But privately, the president has struck a different tone with Mueller, even expressing “appreciation and greetings” in private communications with the special counsel’s office, according to USA Today.

“He appreciates what Bob Mueller is doing,” Trump chief counsel John Down told USA Today. “He asked me to share that with him and that’s what I’ve done.”

“The president has sent messages back and forth,” Dowd said without explaining whether that meant the president was personally communicating with Mueller.

“We get along well with Bob Mueller; our communications have been constructive,” said Dowd. “But it is important that our communications remain confidential. It’s important that there not be any breakdown in that trust.”

As far as the president eventually firing Mueller, that looks to be out the window, at least for now.

“That’s never been on the table, never,” Dowd said, referring to the possibility of firing Mueller. “It’s a manifestation of the media. My dealings with Bob Mueller have always been cordial, respectful — the way it should be.”

Considering the power Mueller now wields, like it or not, cordiality is definitely a good thing!
