A prominent leftist non-profit is preemptively preparing a response to the potential firing of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and special counsel Robert Mueller. Rosenstein was the subject of a damning New York Times report.
“Trump will create a constitutional crisis if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller, or attempts to compromise the investigation by other means,” said a post from MoveOn.org.
The group is preparing to hold more than 900 simultaneous protests around the country in the event that the bad actors in the DOJ are fired after Rosenstein was exposed Friday for “suggest[ing] last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and discuss[ing] recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit.”
According to the MoveOn page, there are already 400,000 RSVP’s for the event.
“This is an event planned as a rapid-response protest in the event that Donald Trump fires Special Counsel Robert Mueller or acts in other ways to seriously threaten the Trump-Russia investigation,” according to the RSVP page. “Please note that the listed date is a placeholder and will be updated to be within 24 hours of the firing, should it occur.”
The event, which actually has no official date, is called “Dump Trump – Nobody is Above the Law Rapid Response Rally.”
“Assembly times will depend on the time of Mueller’s termination. If he is fired before 2pm, we will assemble at 5 pm the same day,” according to the event. “If he gets fired after 2pm, we will assemble at noon the following day!”
In a detailed New York Times exposé, the paper said that Rosenstein made remarks about trying to oust Trump “in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and F.B.I. officials” days after James Comey was fired from the helm of the FBI.
“Several people described the episodes in interviews over the past several months, insisting on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations,” according to the piece. “The people were briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by F.B.I. officials, including Andrew G. McCabe, then the acting bureau director, that documented Mr. Rosenstein’s actions and comments.”
Rosenstein reportedly tried to play off his wearing-a-wire comments as a joke.
According to MoveOn, there are three scenarios that will trigger the protests. Firing Mueller, pardoning key witnesses or replacing Rosenstein are considered “break glass” moments.

ACCOUNTABILITY: President Trump Fires Deep State Snitch Who Triggered Impeachment Hysteria
Trump made the announcement to Congress on Friday.
President Donald Trump is taking out the trash now that the impeachment witch hunt against him has subsided, and he has fired a deep state snitch instrumental in getting the impeachment proceedings off the ground.
Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, a Department of Justice attorney who served as the Intelligence Community Inspector General, after Atkinson notified Congress last year about the “whistleblower” complaint filed by CIA operative Eric Ciaramella. This prompted months of hysteria that ultimately found no evidence of Trump committing any wrongdoing.
“As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have the power of appointment … it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general,” Trump wrote in his letter to Congress. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”
Leading Democrats are not happy about Trump cleaning house and removing deep state operatives from power.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is demanding that the President to “immediately cease his attacks on those who sacrifice to keep America safe, particularly during this time of national emergency.”
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the firing is “another blatant attempt by the President to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.”
“This retribution against a distinguished public servant for doing his job and informing Congress of an urgent and credible whistleblower complaint is a direct affront to the entire inspector general system,” Schiff said in a statement.
“In the midst of a national emergency, it is unconscionable that the President is once again attempting to undermine the integrity of the intelligence community by firing yet another an intelligence official simply for doing his job,” said Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“When you speak truth to power, you should be a hero. But in this administration, when you speak truth to power, all too often, you get fired,” Schumer said during an appearance on CNN.
Republican lawmakers are generally pleased with the President’s decision to remove Atkinson.
“Like any political appointee, the Inspector General serves at the behest of the Executive. However, in order to be effective, the IG must be allowed to conduct his or her work independent of internal or external pressure,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-KY), who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“It is my hope the next nominee for the role of ICIG will uphold the same important standards laid out by Congress when we created this role,” he added.
“The intelligence community inspector general is particularly essential to ensuring the nation’s secrets are well protected and powerful, highly invasive surveillance authorities are not abused. Going forward the ICIG must step up its focus on investigating those abuses and preventing leaks of classified information,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said.
Trump is finally starting to drain the swamp by removing some of these career bureaucrats from position of authority in Washington D.C.
