There are danger signs that tRUmp and gang plan to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and shut down the tRUmp-Russia investigation, as Adam Schiff has pointed out (see Jen Hayden’s diary here for Schiff’s tweet-thread).  Schiff points out that Republicans on the committees performing tRUmp-Russia investigations are obstructing them in various ways, revealing that, for them, the investigations are only about appearances.

More obvious danger signs are the specious claims that Mueller and others on his team have conflicts of interest, and the multiple attacks on the FBI for being anti-tRUmp and pro-Clinton. 

These attacks and accusations are increasing in intensity, suggesting tRUmp could act soon.

A number of Kossacks have said in comments that they’ll hit the streets if Trump attempts to fire Mueller.

But how to do it in an organized way? 

MoveOn is on it.


Donald Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller, the person leading the Department of Justice investigation of possible illegal actions by Donald Trump and members of his presidential campaign, and the efforts to conceal those activities.

This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. It would demand an immediate and unequivocal response to show that we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump.

Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.

That’s why we’re preparing to hold emergency “Nobody is Above the Law” rallies around the country in the event they are needed.

Use the map or search below by ZIP code to find an event near you, or create one if none exists.

Remember — minutes and hours following a power grab.  Time is of the essence once it happens, so best to have your own action planned in advance.
