[Ed. – Everything Blumenthal does in an assault on our democracy.]
“Firing Rod Rosenstein would be an assault on our democracy, a break the glass moment, and our own colleagues have promised that there would be a firestorm of condemnation that would hopefully persuade the president [that] he would be wrong,” Blumenthal told Hill.TV.
“My hope is that Republican colleagues rise to that challenge. Certainly, on our side, the denunciation would be loud and clear, he continued.
Blumenthal’s comments come ahead of a Thursday meeting between President Trump and Rosenstein that could determine the future of his post overseeing the federal probe into Russian election meddling.
The White House said on Monday that the two had an “extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories.”
