The transition official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss post-election decisions publicly.
Jake [Tapper], Roger Stone, the president's longtime friend and associate told CNN Money earlier today this, "I'd fire Mueller and Rosenstein for wasting the taxpayer's money". The attorney general was at a White House meeting when the notification came from Rosenstein, prompting the enraged President to scold the attorney general for the turn of events.
Despite American intelligence and law enforcement's continued assertion that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election, Trump argues that it is a "hoax".
Now, Richard W. Painter, the former White House ethics lawyer tweeted Saturday saying: "Just appeared on FOX News".

Recent news reports have suggested Mr Trump sought all three officials' help in pressuring Mr Comey to drop his investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.
Vice President Mike Pence hired an outside lawyer to represent his legal interests in the expanding Russian Federation probe. Pence headed the Trump transition until inauguration day.
In a statement many have described as "odd", Rosenstein warned the USA public to "exercise caution" before trusting media reports citing anonymous officials, despite the fact that the Trump administration continues to use them in official statements to the media. The transition, a nonprofit structurally separate from the Trump campaign, continues to operate with a small staff. Based in part on the people he is hiring to assist in the probe, some wonder whether he may lean toward a less-than-objective investigation, at the president's expense. The memo asks for preservation of electronic communications and data, telephone logs, audio recordings, videos, calendars and other items.
This is what he said in May.
Donald Trump has reportedly been yelling at TV sets in the White House as he becomes "increasingly angry" about an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the United States presidential election.
However, the president has refused to slow down and posted numerous times that the Russian collusion claims are being made but no solid proof are presented.
