NBC Report: Trump wants Sessions to prosecute Mueller

And you thought he only wanted to fire him.

This idea appears to be based on a notion of political strategy, not because he thinks Mueller has committed a crime. The latter goes without saying; Mueller’s “crime” is investigating Trump for possible wrongdoing. Trump believes himself above criticism or accountability.
