I’ve defended Bob Mueller since the day he was announced. I continue to do so. His work is important and the American people deserve to know what he finds - and doesn’t find.

If Trump/Whitaker were to fire him, it would boomerang on Trump severely. nationalreview.com/2018/11/jeff-f…
Many Rs who cut Trump some slack, even if they don’t always like him, will turn against him. Trump’s approval rating will plunge and he will be in credible danger of impeachment and possibly conviction.

Nothing Trump could do would be dumber than firing Mueller.
But just because it’s dumb doesn’t mean that Constitutionally he doesn’t have the right to do it. Everyone in the executive branch works for the President. He has the right to fire. Trump’s predecessors had that right. His successors will have that right. He has that right.
I 100% oppose any legislation to “protect” Mueller. Such a measure is an unconstitutional infringement on the powers of the presidency.
You don’t defend the Constitution by infringing upon it. Our system’s political checks and balances work. Trump won’t fire Mueller because he knows doing so will hurt himself. But if he were dumb enough to do so, he has the right.
