Denny Heck: Trump Instructing Rosenstein to Fire Mueller Would ‘Precipitate’ a Constitutional Crisis

‘We’ve been inching toward a constitutional crisis for quite some time’


HECK: "I think we’ve been inching toward a constitutional crisis for quite some time. I’ve said it to you before on your program. And the act of instructing Rod Rosenstein to fire Bob Mueller, who is the only person, I believe, that has the legal authority to do so, would in fact precipitate just such a constitutional crisis. The fact of the matter is, Don, we now have definitive proof that Americans are very, very hungry for all of the truth behind this. We know this because James Comey’s book, which has not yet been released, is already a best-seller. People want to know."
