Mark Salter, a longtime Republican ally and the former chief of staff of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), responded to President Trump’s abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey by tweeting that it might be up to Democrats to save the country:
Words I thought I'd never say: the security of the United States might now depend on electing a Democratic Congress in 2018.

The Week notes:
Any cracks in Republican support of the Trump administration’s decision to oust Comey are significant. “As long as [the] GOP stands with Trump, this will NOT spiral into a Watergate-like dying presidency,” The New Republic‘s Jeet Heer tweeted.
