Will Trump Fire Special Counsel Mueller?

As the noose tightens (and the less we see and hear about what's going on in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, the more serious it's nature), it appears some moves are being considered by un-indicted co- conspirator Donald "Rump" Trump.

Here's Rump confidante and Newsmax sleazeball CEO Chris Ruddy:

As MSNBC's Kyle Griffin notes, there's a pattern quickly developing in the Trump swamp:

We wouldn't put anything past this existential threat to American democracy. Rump firing James Comey didn't stop the investigation, but simply added to the growing impression that he's furiously trying to hide his criminality and/ or treasonous behavior.

We hope Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has an accurate read on the mood of Congress (but we're skeptical):

Call it a "tell," or "consciousness of guilt," or just plain "obstruction of justice," for Rump to do this would be in the same category (though with far greater implications for national security and democratic governance) than the "Saturday Night Massacre" that ultimately led to Richard Nixon's resignation before certain impeachment.

BONUS:  Republican strategist Rick Wilson has an epic tweetstorm about the Rump enablers and "fanboys."

Ya know, with the "threat" of firing Mr. Mueller, the firing of Comey, & the constant "Fake News" diatribe, you'd think Lil Donny boy was guilty of sumin'. But, who am I to say?!!

He's almost a textbook case of acting in "consciousness of guilt" -- and not even smart/ self-controlled enough to know when to shut his pie hole.
