URGENT, what are WE going to do WHEN, not if, Rosenstein & Mueller are fired?

Which will all happen by Tuesday and by Wednesday the new boss will stop the funding for the investigation, prevent them from looking at Trump's finances, etc.

What do we do now that the GOP has collectively commited treason and is working with Russia to attack us?

1. Rosenstein's replacement can fire Mueller..

after he/she is chosen and confirmed by the Senate. That should take a while.

3. This group

By firing Rosenstein or Mueller, the President would trigger a full-fledged Constitutional crisis by asserting that he is above the law. The hours following the firing will determine whether he is proved right.
https://act.moveon.org/event/mueller-firing-rapid-response/search/?source=MFT
should the President fire Rosenstein or Mueller, if that isn't the moment they put country over party to hold the President accountable, it's not clear whether it will ever happen. Let's show our lawmakers that we won't stand by while they allow Donald Trump to slide the US into authoritarianism.

"Yet nothing!"

The cause (memo) has been out for less than an hour. Allow time for effect (dismissals and personnel changes).

Patience is not simply a family name, it's also something we learn to practice after becoming adults, regardless of the petulance insertion of "lol."

If he has done this once......and so far nothing REVOLTING HAS HAPPENED.....dOTARD CAN DO IT AGAIN.

Time to get rid of a bunch of these cads......TOO MANY PEOPLE WANTED THIS TOO HAPPEN....

TO MANY REPUBLICANS CONGRATULATED trump for doing it...

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP.!!!!!!!!!!!!

31. Vote. Register others.

On election day, offer rides to the polls. Protest daily at representatives offices. In short, raise hell until midterms. Short of violence, there isn't much more to do but these are suggestions.

are totally different. They take to the streets and they don't play nice either. This regime needs a little taste of their own medicine.

Doesn't anyone remember when we wanted tRump to show his tax returns and he responded "oh the American people don't want to see my tax returns" hmmm....are they trying to think for us??? a big hell no from me. Just shows how disrespectful they are.

Also the repigs are the biggest cowards they ran away from their constituents for town halls.

So cowardly.

until we convince enough voters to throw out the GOP, there is nothing we can do.

I think the most important thing to do is get people REGISTERED to vote and if they live where they are unconstitutionally and illegally required to have ID, get them the ID

25. There will be bedlam, but it will take a few days, in my opinion.

I think a slow chain reaction will start once Mueller is actually fired.

We have to remember that it is 4th and long for Donnie. He probably never thought things would get this bad for him. So here is what I think will happen.

He will fire Rosenstein next week most likely. He will be replaced with Rachel Brand. Brand will refuse to fire Mueller. Trump will fire Brand, and he will keep going to the point to which he finds someone to fire Mueller. It may not be an outright firing of Mueller, but it will be some severe hindrance to the investigation. If/when he can't find someone to fire Mueller or hinder the investigation, he will do something insane and try to fire Mueller himself. He will do whatever he thinks he can get away with to fire Mueller.

In the meantime, nothing is getting done in Congress. The CR expires shortly, and that issue has to be resolved. So in the middle of all of this, there may be another Government shutdown.

All of these things meet in a perfect storm and the Government becomes completely impotent. Leaks will start happening left and right, and there will be rumors of martial law becoming imminent, or rumors that Trump is going to start a war with NK.

The planned and organized marches that began the minute Trump fires Rosenstein will grow exponentially larger. They will morph into something huge as people finally realize the gravity of the situation. Millions will protest.

At this point, it is anyone's guess what will happen. The country will be in a state of shock and true crisis. I'm not predicting it at all, but I'm saying there is a chance that the entire country will be thrown into some state of mass violence. The result? Who knows. When your POTUS is insane, I guess anything can happen.

34. Not Rachel Brand.

Appointing her would not accomplish the mission. Shitgibbon can appoint anybody that was already confirmed by the Senate and is a Loyal Trumpkin. He would appoint one of those turds because they will cover his ass.

Of course I am probably giving Shitgibbon too much credit for brains and you are correct.

36. Yes he can.

He can fire pretty much anybody in a leadership position but it can't be to cover up a crime. That is why the memo comes into play. If it can be shown Rosenstein is not performing his duties competently then Shitgibbon is within his rights to fire him.

Shitgibbon has a problem. He has no credibility nor does Nunes so Mueller will be handed another piece of obstruction evidence upon Rosenstein being fired.

29. Rosenstein

 

He'll fire Rosenstein citing this nothing burger memo as justification. He'll then replace him with a cabinet member who 1.) won't have to be confirmed by the senate and 2.) choke off Mueller's investigation.

I don't think there's anything we can do at that point. For now raise hell on social media, call/write any/all congress creatures you can.

30. Donnie Deutsch of all people said there should be revolution

in the streets if either Rosestein or Mueller is fired, that our democracy is being usurped right before our eyes.

Deutsch is your typical moderate Repub type, so I think that reaction will spread throughout the center of America, leading to the Dems retaking congress and impeaching Trump.

from last month. Gonna get more use out of it, I'm sure.

Same with the pink hat, scarf, and gloves. We're organized, now. People are enjoying getting out in the streets, and the press is covering it well.
