At least one Republican is finally speaking out on the very real possibility that Trump will fire Robert Mueller and warning him not to do it. Sort of.
Sen. Lindsey Graham gave a stern warning Sunday to President Donald Trump against firing special counsel Robert Mueller.
"As I said before, if he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency," the South Carolina Republican said on CNN's "State of the Union."
"The only reason that Mr. Mueller could be dismissed is for cause. I see no cause when it comes to Mr. Mueller," Graham said, later adding he believed the Mueller was "doing a good job."
Graham called for Mueller to be able to carry out his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election "independent of any political influence."
"I pledge to the American people, as a Republican, to make sure that Mr. Mueller can continue to do his job without any interference," he said.
Frankly, Graham won't be able to do much of anything about it by himself without GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan or GOP Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. This is John McCain and the tax bill all over again, which destroyed Obamacare's individual mandate even as McCain promised to fight against Trump's changes to the Affordable Care Act.
The actions of the GOP, especially Senators, leads me to believe that in the end they do not care.
I don't believe Lindsey Graham will protect Mueller and anyone who does is a fool.
