CNN stunned: “Trump’s going to fire Mueller and there’s nothing the Democrats can do”

CNN came to a grinding halt on Saturday when a guest made a stunning prediction: Robert Mueller will be fired soon and Democrats won’t be able to do anything about it.

Criminal defense attorney Richard Herman left civil rights lawyer Avery Friedman and host Fredricka Whitfield breathless with the brazen pronouncement that Trump would fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“All right, Richard, you first,” Wilson said. “Warner says he brought this up because he was concerned the president could try to fire Mueller while Congress is in recess, so is Mueller in jeopardy with Congress, you know, not, with Congress and Washington not necessarily not trying to protect him any further than what we heard from Warner?”

“Well, they’re not going to protect him, Fred,” Herman said, “and I absolutely believe Trump will fire Mueller… He’s a serious compulsive liar. The White House lies on a daily basis. And his minions lie for him on a daily basis.”

“Let me tell you why the Democrats have their hands tied behind their back and they can’t do anything about it,” he continued. “There’s nothing they can do. Say Mueller says crimes were committed and makes the report to the House of Representatives, there was obstruction of justice, there was conspiracy with the Russians to affect the election and throw in a money laundering count.”

“The House of Representatives needs a majority vote, Fred,” he continued, “in order to draft articles of impeachment. If they do, the Senate, which will try Trump, needs a two-thirds majority. That ain’t never going to happen. There’s absolutely nothing the Democrats can do if Trump fires Mueller. I believe he’s going to do it. He crossed the red line. He subpoenaed records from Deutsche bank, from Wells Fargo, getting personal with the Trump finances. Telling you, he is absolutely going to fire him.”

Watch the exchange below:

The bold predictions weren’t finished yet. The discussion turned to Jared Kushner.

“They already have his returns, Avery, they’ve had them for a while,” Herman said. “They absolutely have his tax reforms, number one. Number two, they want him to give testimony. That’s what they want. And his counsel have been blowing smoke up his butt, telling him, oh, it’s going to be over by Thanksgiving, it’s going to be over by Christmas.”

“This is six months to a year down the road at a minimum, Fred,” Herman continued. “This is going to go on for a while. More — Jared Kushner’s going to get indicted next. This is going to be a long haul here. I’m telling you, Fred, just like the Republicans did when Obama nominated a representative for the Supreme Court, they ignored him. When Gorsuch was put up by Trump, they changed voting requirements to get him approved. The Democrats did nothing. This tax bill, that was just signed off on, the Republicans did it without the Democrats, didn’t consult them. They voted on it without even reading it.”

“You’re getting far afield,” Friedman chimed in.

“He’s going to fire Mueller and there’s nothing the Democrats can do, Fred,” Herman replied.

“Okay, then both of you agree if, if that hypothetical were to happen and there were a firing or removal of — I’ve heard of language of constitutional crisis many times over that’s what this would lead to,” Wilson said.

“You just nailed it. It will be, just like the Saturday night massacre,” Friedman said, “it will be a serious and remarkable constitutional crisis.”

CNN is breathless and upset about a situation that hasn’t even happened yet. As for the “legal analysis,” how can it be a “constitutional crisis” if the president has the authority to direct a Department of Justice official to fire Special Counsel Mueller?
