Dem Rep. Ted Lieu Predicts "Widespread Civil Unrest" If Trump Fires Mueller


On MSNBC's 'All In' with Chris Hayes, Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu predicted "widespread civil unrest" should the president fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

REP. TED LIEU: If the president does go ahead and fire Robert Mueller, we would have people take to the streets. I believe there would be widespread civil unrest. Because Americans understand that the rule of law is paramount...

I think you're going have protests and marches and rallies and sit-ins. I believe Americans would not stand for the firing of Robert Mueller. First of all, the president hasn’t been able to point to a single thing that Robert Mueller has done wrong. There is no basis to fire him. And he’d have to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein first in order to fire Robert Mueller.
