House Oversight & Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy blasted President Donald Trump’s attorney for his demanding of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s firing.

John Dowd, Trump’s attorney, called FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing a “courageous” act and then called for the Justice Department to also fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Fox News reports:

Dowd called the probe “manufactured” by former FBI Director James Comey and added that it was based on a “fraudulent and corrupt dossier.”

Dowd later clarified that he was speaking for himself and not the White House.

“I think the president’s attorney frankly does him a disservice when he says that,” Gowdy slammed, “If you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it.”

Gowdy also warned Trump that any consideration being given to replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions is also ill-advised.

He said Trump would have trouble getting a replacement for the former Alabama senator through the Senate confirmation process.

“I would just counsel the president. It’s going to be a very, very long, bad 2018,” he added, and urged President Trump to just power through all the garbage.
