Democrats Warn Trump Congress Will ‘Begin Impeachment Proceedings’ If He Fires Mueller, Rosenstein

Written by  Katherine Rodriguez

Several Democrats in Congress warned President Trump on Friday that he will face consequences if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law,” Rep.

Ted Lieu (D-CA) told MSNBC Friday. “And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, and then [get] special counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) echoed Lieu’s sentiments, saying that Congress would come together to make sure they overrule Trump’s authority on the matter.

“Congress will not allow the president to so egregiously overstep his authority,” Schiff said in a statement.

“If President Trump were to try to replicate [former President Richard] Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre by firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in addition to Mueller, Congress must unite to stop him–without respect to party, and for the sake of the nation,” he added.

Trump claimed on Twitter that he was “being investigated” for his decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, insinuating that “the man who told [him] to fire the FBI Director” is also the one investigating him, referencing the deputy attorney general.

It just goes to show the mentality of most Democrats in Congress, nothing but liberal evil a-holes.
“All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law”... really? what about obama, holder, hillary and bill, lerner, lynch, and on and on, the most corrupted and criminal a-holes in government in the last 8 years? Should we apply "the fundamental principle(s) that no one is above the law to them? I will say it again, human excrement has more use and value than the democrat party, hell, at least it can be used as a fertilization for crops!

Pursuant to the United States Constitution, the Democrats would still need a ground for impeachment, such as "Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors". Firing a person which the Constitution deems is within the power of the President to do, does not constitute grounds for impeachment. Impeachment is not the remedy the Democrats need to remove Trump from office. That remedy would be a new election. They will just have to wait for four years to elapse for the next election to occur unless they can come up with a valid ground for impeachment.

If congress REALLY wants to do something for the sake of the nation, EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM SHOULD RESIGN...

Considering the Special Counsel has been hiring Democrats for his investigation and appears to be biased maybe we should impeach him.

Still not an impeachable offense kids, threaten away. It is the Presidents right to end the investigation if he wants. These Dem lawyer politicians know that, their voters don't. So more incendiary rhetoric...pathetic.

Was not the impeachment of Andrew Johnson, over the right of the Executive to appoint and to dismiss members of the executive staff?

Ironic that the democrats have nothing left, but to challenge the prerogative of the Executive, especially since the appointments of th Democrats recently have been approved by RINO's that have brought the USA to its' knees (i.e. AG Lynch, Supreme Court nominees, etc.)

"No one is above the law." That's rich, democrats.

Apparently Mr. Ted Liew from California is feeling the whirlpool effect from the flushing and he is aware that he is closer to the bottom of the bowl than most. His state has a lot of tu r ds that need to go.
The first to go always complain the loudest.

The "Democratic Party", the "Entertainment Industry", and the "Mainstream Media", have all become the "Official Mouthpieces" of the "Radical Left". Heaven help the USA !!!

Did the Democrats win some election I'm not aware of in which they took control of both the House and Senate.

Yeah they won two one Almost seventy years ago when they took over the Education System theses American Secular Progressive Humanist Bolsheviks have brainwashed countless young people into their cult of Humanist Socialist. But they also infiltrated and stole the Mainstream Media ( the Propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. ). Which is trying their dead level best to destroy the constitution of the United States even the Brainwashed Harvard Social Scientist have agreed.

Amen to that brother. Lefty libs control virtually all college campuses and have for decades. It's only now that they've upped their rhetoric and brainwashed our kids into the mindless puppets that make up Antifa and other fascist organizations that squelch free speech and bully those who don't agree with their warped views.

Let's do something! Our voices need to be heard. Let's sign this and see if we can stop the special counsel to stop this insanity. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/trump-investigation

This petition is to put pressure on the special prosecutor to put an end to this endless, bogus investigation of Trump. We're not being heard like the progressive left haters are. We have to do something besides gripe on these posts.

time to rid this country of the liberals that have had control of this country for the past 8 years with the illegal president of the time---- If the President so choose to remove special counsel because of all the ties to the loony DemocRATs he should have the right --Witch Hunt is the name of the game and I believe Trump will win -- and d maybe we can get rid of the RINO- and the DemocRATS who have come accustom to the life stye in DC-- good reason for TERM LIMITS

Why are we even wasting taxpayer money on an investigation of zero crimes...??? Would it be to keep the DOJ from investigating democrat crimes...why absolutely, and why won't the nut-less GOP say the obvious...???

The dems/liberals are wishing to impeach President Trump for one thing only: that being that he beat them out in the November election. The dems now appear to be in a death spiral and their only agenda is to destroy the President, and if they are able to do so they are also destroying America.

There is a secondary agenda for the dems, relegating us to Venezuela status since they have nothing to lose so they think.

All liberal bluster, they don't have the numbers or reason to impeach. Put the Clintons in jail.

The Crooked Democrats doing everything to keep any investigation away from themselves, why? Because their people are the GUILTY ones and they know it. With Mueller and Comey being big buddies and Mueller hiring Clinton and Obama people who some are also donors, is a big sham! You say he is Independent? WAFJ!!

The Democrats will be in for a big surprise is they even try to impeach when there is nothing to impeach for, besides they don't have the numbers and if any Republicans would happen to sway, their future in politics would be history!

This whole thing is BS because the Democratic Socialist Communist lost with the worst, most lazy candidate person who does not resonate with anybody.

Be careful what you wish for you phony's.

I agree. They tried the Russian collusion angle for 8 months and nothing. They also tried obstruction, nothing again. As they are wasting taxpayer dollars (Mueller should never have been there, he's a friend of Comey's and look at who he's hiring). Therefore I see taxation without representation again. Do you think the snowflakes are ready for a revolution? The civil war is already here, we're just one step away.
