MoveOn.org is reporting that 300,000 Americans have pledged to attend rapid response rallies or protests at 800 planned locations across the United States in the event that Donald Trump should fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller AND/OR Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Trump has intimated on numerous occasions, especially this week amidst news that the FBI raided the office and home of his personal attorney Michael Cohen, that such a firing would be within his authority.
However, the firing would be such an overreach that even Republicans in Congress have suggested that if he were to fire Mueller, it would mean impeachment.
Think about that: the emoluments violations, firing McCabe, the various beligerrent slips of national security information, the conflicts of interest, the Trump/Russia stuff… none of it has warranted impeachment to the GOP. But this firing would make the President above the law. And that is simply unacceptable, terrifying, and frankly presumes his guilt in the Trump/Russia investigation.
