Representative Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) gave a straightforward and dire warning to President Donald Trump on Wednesday: “Fire Mueller and we fire you.”
Eric Swalwell’s suggestion that the Democrats would impeach Donald Trump if he tried to shut down the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation came in response to Donald Trump’s earlier tweet ranted that the Attorney General Jeff Sessions must stop the investigation of his terrible crimes.
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further,” Donald Trump ranted. “Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”

With that insane Wednesday tweet, Donald Trump escalated his evil attacks on the highly successful Mueller investigation, calling it a “witch hunt” and publicly calling on Jeff Sessions to end the probe.
Since Sessions recused himself from all matters related to the election-rigging investigation, Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, is overseeing the investigation.
The tweet got immediate backlash from all Trump critics, because it’s felony obstruction of justice, which Trump should already be in prison for 100 times over.
“Individuals of conscience who believe in rule of law should denounce this blatant effort to obstruct justice,” former CIA Director John Brennan said. “As Mr. Trump’s desperation to protect himself grows, he could turn words into actions, prompting a Constitutional crisis. Congress must warn Trump of dire consequences.”
Robert Mueller is looking into Trump’s tweets now in the investigation into whether the evil president obstructed justice (which he obviously has).
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the terrible lying White House press secretary, dishonestly claimed that the stupid tweet wasn’t an “order” to Jeff Sessions, but rather the moron Trump expressing his stupid opinion.
