Posted on 02/02/2018 9:10:31 PM PST by Rockitz
Top congressional Democrats told President Trump on Friday that using the new House Intelligence Committee memo as a pretext to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and therefore halt the Russia investigation would spark a constitutional crisis.
Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said in a letter they are alarmed at reports that Trump may use the memo as a pretext to fire Rosenstein in an effort to corruptly influence or impede special counsel Robert Muellers investigation.
We write to inform you that we would consider such an unwarranted act as an attempt to obstruct justice in the Russia investigation. Firing Rod Rosenstein, DOJ Leadership or Bob Mueller could result in a constitutional crisis of a kind not seen since the Saturday Night Massacre," they said.
Rosenstein is the only Department of Justice official who can remove Mueller, and he was expected to be named in the four-page classified memo made public Friday.

Sure you ‘Rat-tards.
Weasel Mueller controls RosenWeasel who controls Sessions.
Cutting the link is a GREAT Idea. Don’t fire him, demote him.
We have been in a constitutional crisis for over a year. Fire him now.
These lowlifes are so hung up on Watergate it's sickening. Any one of the Clinton or Obama scandals would make Watergate look like probation.
Rosenstein can't stay in. It's about the rule of law. Fire Rosenstein. Then let the game play out.
Trump appoints a replacement that starts prosecuting swamp critters.
The Democrats start impeaching Trump.
Let's see who wins.
Regardless of party, Congress has no advise and consent role over firings in the Executive Branch. These morons think we’re a Parliamentary system. We’re not. Trump should not only fire Rosenstein but order an immediate investigation and prosecution.
“When a plot against the emperor failed, the conspirators were given the option to do the right thing before righteous retribution was implemented. “
And yet the party of the LIE attempts to control the narrative...
Slightly off topic, but;
Why can’t the Senate and House wrap up their Rooskie Collusion/Interference studies and issue the d@mn reports?
Don’t they have some budgeting to do?
We’re already in the middle of a constitutional crisis. The Obama/Hillary/DOJ/FBI coup attempt.
The Democrat Thug Party issues a warning...
Obamagate is exponentially more criminal than Watergate, but neither the Democrat Thug Party nor MSM cares.
For all that support Trump, an impact can be made against the MSM by denying the parent corps patronage. Disney and Comcast for starters.
Watergate WAS never anything more than a means to an end. Like with their obsession to get Trump, the Democrats/Media and political establishment spent over 2 decades trying to destroy Nixon in order to exact revenge for his role in exposing Communist infiltration of the government, namely Alger Hiss.
There was nothing Democrats have done in office that wasn’t worse than Watergate on any day of the week. FDR bugged his opponents, you didn’t hear a peep about that being a “threat to the republic.” Absolute nothingburger disguised as an epic crime.
Hillary Rodman got fired for unethical conduct.
Same stuff. Different year.
Trump shouldn’t have to fire him. He should do the right thing and resign.
Or an empty room, a Luger and a single bullet.
How many divisions do these traitors have?
I hate to say it but we’re at a military solution
