Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election has been making headlines since it began in May 2017. Since it started, Mueller's investigation has seen the indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, and personal attorney Michael Cohen.
While the American public remains largely in the dark on what Mueller knows and how he knows what he knows, there is a growing awareness that Mueller has uncovered something, given the arrests and seizures his investigation has led to. On March 22, 2019, that curiosity reached a fever pitch, as Mueller officially declared the investigation complete. He submitted his findings to Attorney General William Barr, and the American people are eager to hear his findings.
There's also a growing discussion around Mueller's job security. Can Trump fire Mueller, as Sarah Huckabee Sanders once claimed he could? Yes and no. Legal scholars contend there are workarounds President Trump could use if he wanted to remove Mueller from his post that wouldn't involve a direct firing. Still, Trump critics at MoveOn are ready with a rapid response should the Trump Administration do anything to impede Mueller's investigation.
How would you respond if Robert Mueller were to be fired? What would you do in that event?
