The American people have Robert Mueller’s back
Trump was worried about the House Democrats investigating him or protecting Mueller. What he really should have been concerned about is the reaction of the American people when he decided to put a lapdog who doesn’t believe that Russia interfered in the 2016 election in charge of the Department of Justice.
The American people are going to take to the streets to protect the Special Counsel, and if Trump dares of sabotage or fire Mueller, the protests that are happening today will be nothing compared to what will be waiting for him everywhere he goes until he is out office every single minute of his life.
The American people got the House. Now, they want their country back.
