MSNBC White House correspondent Hallie Jackson says President Donald Trump thinks he’s doing great, but White House staffers are deeply worried they will be swept up in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Jackson shared her analysis on NBC’s “Meet The Press:
I think my sense is, what you’re seeing is the boiling of the frog slowly. This started back when the president talked about this as a witch hunt back in the day. But then the White House, very publicly said at the podium, that we’re at — when we asked Sarah Sanders, she said, “No, no, the president is going to continue to allow Bob Mueller to do his job.”
But I think slowly you’re seeing this escalation of real questions being raised about Mueller’s credibility, with the FBI agent who was let go. That is a major issue.
For people, Republicans, allies of the president — I will also tell you, mood-wise, you can’t overstate the paranoia and the concern inside the West Wing about this investigation. Although the president, I’m told loves to be talking about his tax bill. He’s actually feeling pretty good about where he is right now.
