The left is champing at the bit, hoping President Donald Trump will fire White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Even though Trump himself has said that he has no intention of firing Mueller, top liberals like former Attorney General Eric Holder are already gleefully planning what they will do if Mueller is forced out of the probe.
“ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office. If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both. The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative,” Holder tweeted on Sunday, according to Fox News.
This wasn't the first time Holder spoke up about this.
“Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned: any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated. These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political–designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party,” Holder tweeted last Thursday.
Former White House ethics lawyer and director of the Office of Government Ethics Walter Shaub also said that he is preparing to "take to the streets."
“This weekend I’m stocking up on portable phone chargers, warm clothes, & gear needed for when we take the streets. I’m concerned the assault on the rule of law is coming over the holidays when we’re distracted. It will be a defining moment for the Republic,” Shaub tweeted Friday.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that FBI agent Peter Strzok had been fired from the investigation after he was found to be exchanging numerous anti-Trump text messages with his mistress Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who was also involved in the probe.
Mueller lawyers Andrew Weissman and Jeannie Rhee were also both found to have ties to top Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Of course, Holder and his fellow liberals hope Trump will fire Mueller so they can then declare that Trump has indeed "obstructed justice."
Ironically, the special counsel's investigative skills have been proven to be so inept that he is of far better use to Trump if he's still doing the job than if he were let go.
