Liberals are preparing a massive protest in case President Trump fires Mueller.
From The Washington Post:
Progressive groups are organizing tens of thousands of protesters to storm the streets within hours should President Trump fire special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, determined to intensify the crisis while testing the resiliency of the year-old “resistance” movement.
The White House has repeatedly stated that Trump has no intention of ousting Mueller, a move that probably would require him to get buy-in from Justice Department leaders, including Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein.
Activists on the left are afraid of Trump’s intentions, saying they are concern that he could act, possibly over the Christmas holidays when Congress and the public are distracted. More than two dozen progressive organizations have spent the past several weeks lining up what they vow would be an urgent feedback that would not be ignored.
More than 140,000 people who use an online portal that links the numerous groups and their contact lists, have registered to begin protesting within hours of Trump’s decision, at predetermined places in more than 600 cities.
The protests are constructed to harness what organizers think would be a movement of nationwide outrage that would follow Donald Trump’s action, which Democrats in Congress warn could trigger a constitutional crisis.
“It’s pretty rare that people would commit to mobilize around something that we don’t even know will happen, so it shows the energy and passion out there. The reaction will be swift” said Lisa Gilbert, vice president of legislative affairs for Public Citizen, a Washington-based environmental and government reform organization.
