Democrat Congressman Hints Mueller Ready To Enact ‘Contingency Plan’ If Fired By POTUS Trump

On Monday, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) hinted special counsel Robert Mueller has a “contingency plan,” ready if President Trump decides to fire him.

“I agree with @SenJohnMcCain. Mueller is a Marine, and a former US attorney, @FBI Director & Deputy Attorney General. You don’t think Mueller has a contingency plan ready to go should he be removed? The truth is coming out and @realDonaldTrump can’t stop it,” Lieu tweeted in response to McCain’s call for the probe to carry on “unimpeded.”

“Special Counsel Mueller has served our country with honesty and integrity. It’s critical he be allowed to complete a thorough investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election — unimpeded,” McCain tweeted.

The same evening, Lieu told MSNBC‘s Chris Hayes that believes “widespread civil unrest” will occur if Trump removes Mueller.

“If the president does go ahead and fire Robert Mueller, we would have people take to the streets,” Lieu told Hayes.

“I believe there would be widespread civil unrest because Americans believe the rule of law is paramount.”

“You think there would be widespread civil unrest?” Hayes asked.

“I do.”

I think you’re going have protests and marches and rallies and sit-ins. I believe Americans would not stand for the firing of Robert Mueller,” said Lieu.
