If @realDonaldTrump is ready to force out Rod Rosenstein, how much longer until he goes after Special Counsel Mueller? Every resignation and firing brings us one step closer to a constitutional crisis. Congress must immediately pass the bipartisan bill to protect Mueller.

Under no circumstances should Rod Rosenstein resign. This would place the Mueller investigation in even greater jeopardy. Rosenstein should continue to do his job, protect the independence of the DOJ, and if the President intends to obstruct justice, force Trump to fire him.

What happens to Mueller's Russia investigation if Rosenstein loses his job after Thursday’s meeting with Trump? https://t.co/vq5aukkDwO

The reason they don’t want to bring the Mueller bill to the Senate floor is they know it would pass and they are afraid of the President. Seriously.

There's a possibility that the Mueller report will never make it to Congress. That’s exactly why @realDonaldTrump wants to fire both Rosenstein and Sessions. And why we need to pass bipartisan legislation to #ProtectMueller. Deliver full transparency and justice! pic.twitter.com/SsaUz2hcoI

Bottom line – If @realDonaldTrump fires Rod Rosenstein for the purpose of protecting himself from the Mueller investigation, that would represent high crimes and misdemeanors.

The White House won’t guarantee that Mueller’s investigation will continue if Rod Rosenstein leaves the Justice Department. If Trump forces Rosenstein’s exit to halt Mueller, that’s obstruction of justice.https://t.co/ml37CgYLlK

Sen. Klobuchar on Deputy AG Rosenstein's future: "I'm very concerned. This is a man that is No. 2 in the Justice Dept. overseeing a national security investigation, the Mueller investigation about whether a foreign country cyber-attacked our own country." https://t.co/7x4ZTCJX0u pic.twitter.com/EBwm6jxkGf
