BACKGROUND INFO: On Monday, October 30, 2017, Robert Mueller announced his first indictments regarding the continuing investigation into Russia’s involvement and possible collusion with the Trump campaign in 2016. Three individuals have so far been named and arrested.  Trump has continually denied any involvement and he has lied and attempted multiple times to stop this investigation.  For some time he has signaled an intent to try to fire Special Investigator Robert Mueller.  The speculation seems to center on who is charged and/or whatever Trump’s ‘mood’ is on any given day.  Trump has admitted that he fired FBI Director James Comey because he didn’t like how he was conducting the Russia investigation.  It is entirely possible he will try to do the same thing with Mueller.  Many people believe the future of the Republic is dependent upon the public’s response as well as that of Congress and other members of this White House. Donald Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller, the person leading the Department of Justice investigation of possible illegal actions by Donald Trump, members of his presidential campaign, and their efforts to conceal those activities. If Trump were to attempt this firing, it would be a constitutional crisis for our country. It would demand an immediate and unequivocal response to show that as Americans, we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump or anyone in the highest offices of the land.  Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.
