Secretary Ben Carson Goes Rogue On President Trump? He’s Now Claiming That…

Well, this is a sure fire surprise.

We all know that Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson has been a strong supporter of President Trump from the moment Dr. Carson stepped out of the primaries. He has been a faithful team member during the campaign and during Trump’s presidency. But did his latest interview on Fox News show signs of change?

Secretary Carson spoke on a Fox News interview and said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should be given “a chance.” It is clear that Carson thinks that President Trump’s rhetoric of calling the investigation a “witch hunt” is out of line. So what are we to think of Carson’s cryptic comments? Is he still for Team Trump, but wants to placate to all sides, or is he truly starting to step away from Trump and become a RINO?

From The Blaze:

Ben Carson, the Trump administration’s secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, said in an interview on Friday he believes the special prosecutor appointed to investigate potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as related obstruction of justice allegations, should be given “a chance” before being rejected. Carson’s position is a notable break from President Donald Trump’s position on the issue, as well as his communications team, which has called the allegations a “witch hunt.”

In an interview with Pete Hegseth on Fox News Radio’s “Kilmeade and Friends,” Carson said special prosecutor Robert Mueller should be given “a chance” to conduct a fair investigation.

“I would give him the chance to see if he could do that because if there’s nothing there, he’s not going to find anything anyway,” Carson said.

“That has been the case now for nearly a year,” Carson continued. “There’s nothing to find; that’s why they keep going down these empty rabbit

holes. That will continue to be the case because there’s nothing there.”

Carson’s suggestion that Mueller should be given “a chance” represents a remarkable departure from the position espoused by Trump and other allies. On Friday morning, Trump wrote on Twitter, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.”

Just minutes earlier, Trump had referenced the “witch hunt” another time.

“Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great. Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!” Trump wrote.

So what are we truly to think? I guess time will tell and reveal to us if Carson is just playing a silly political game, or if he really is going rogue to thwart the president’s plans to make America great again.
