WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump called for special counsel Robert Mueller’s firing last June, The New York Times reported Thursday evening, citing four people told of the matter.

But the President never went through with the order, according to the Times report, because White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit instead of carrying out the order.

Mueller is currently investigating any possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.
