We all need to be prepared to take to the streets when Trump fires Mueller… which now looks imminent

I know we talked about the Republican campaign to stop the Russia investigation just a few days ago, but quite a bit has happened since then, and I think it’s probably gotten to the point where we should start discussing how we’re each going to respond when the inevitable happens, and Donald Trump attempts to […]
