Obama Attorney General Eric Holder: Americans Must Take To The Streets If Trump Fires Mueller





Former Attorney General Eric Holder took to Twitter on Sunday to call on Americans to take to the streets if President Donald Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller or significantly impedes his ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office. If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both. The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative,” Holder tweeted.

Holder, who served under President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2015, tweeted earlier in the week in response to a “rumor on the Hill” that Trump intends to fire Mueller when Congress leaves for the holidays.

“Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated,” the tweet read. “These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party”.
