If Trump fires Mueller, Republicans will be, like, really disappointed

When President Trump gleefully leapt to Twitter to revel in the firing of FBI Deputy DirectorAndrew McCabe, to observe that the Mueller investigation is a WITCH HUNT led by “hardened Democrats” (Robert S. Mueller III is a Republican), and to point out that the House investigation found no collusion (“Our committee was not charged with answering the collusion idea,” mumbled Rep. K. Michael Conaway (R-Tex.) on “Meet The Press“), it seemed as though he was contemplating the Heretofore Unthinkable Course of trying to shut down the Mueller investigation. His lawyer John Dowd even put forth a request that the investigation stop.

But there is no cause for alarm. Should the president attempt such a course, the Republicans who hold power in Congress have made it clear that they will … be disappointed.

.. People should not be worried: If the future of our democracy depends on the courage of the current crop of Republican lawmakers, we can rest assured that when the time comes, they will put country over party and eventually say something stern, as they open for Trump at a rally.
