The New York Times has now reported what we’ve long suspected: Trump wants to fire Special Counsel Mueller, and has already tried to do so. His attorney prevented the firing, but that doesn’t mean that the independent investigation is safe.
The investigation has already yielded a string of high-profile indictments. That means Mueller, and those associated with his investigation (including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein), are even more at risk of being fired by Donald Trump. Learn more here.
Ask Congress to protect the Mueller investigation. It is the duty of Congress, as a separate co-equal branch of government, to guard against abuses of the Executive Branch. That’s why the framers of the Constitution created separation of powers. Our elected officials need to speak out and make clear that firing Mueller would be a red line that Trump must not cross.
