On Tuesday, President Donald Trump’s campaign manager called for the president to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Brad Parscale tweeted the demand, while also calling for for the end of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. According to Parscale, the report that Department of Justice's inspector general Michael Horowitz released last week gives the president justification to take action against Mueller. "Time to fire Sessions, End the Mueller investigation," Parscale tweeted. "You can’t obstruct something that was phony against you. The IG report gives @realDonaldTrump the truth to end it all."
On Thursday, Horowitz released the report that in more than 500 pages delved into the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she served as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. Horowitz’s report was critical of the FBI's handling of its investigation. It also criticized former FBI Director James Comey for allegedly breaking with DOJ norms in the agency's investigation leading up to the 2016 presidential election.

End the Mueller investigation
You can’t obstruct something that was phony against you
The IG report gives @realDonaldTrump the truth to end it all.
“I think that the report yesterday — maybe more importantly than anything — it totally exonerates me," Trump said last week. "There was no collusion. There was no obstruction.” Reportedly, Trump has contemplated dismissing Sessions. "I can’t think of something more concerning than a law enforcement officer suggesting that their going to use their powers to affect an election!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. "Inspector General Horowitz on what was going on with numerous people regarding my election. A Rigged Witch Hunt!"
