Former CIA Director Calls For A Coup If Trump Fires Mueller

“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future.”

In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.

In effect, Brennan appears to be calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller. Now, this is very worrisome because that is exactly what is expected to happen…

Pat Buchanan made a grim prediction about where the dynamic between President Trump and Special Counsel Robert Mueller will go.

Buchanan, who served as a senior advisor to President Nixon during Watergate, told Sean Hannity that Trump senses that Mueller, along with the media, are “coming after him” as well as his family.

“What is gonna happen is this. Mr. Mueller is going to make demands after demand after demand.

He’s gonna get some of them, and then the president I believe is gonna say ‘No more,’ which is what happened in Watergate with the Saturday Night Massacre.

I think there’s a real collision coming between Mueller and the president of the United States.”
