A top globalist publication has called for President Donald Trump to be impeached in the event he fires Robert Mueller, a former FBI director appointed to investigate alleged Russian interference in the last election, a narrative pushed by the #NeverTrump movement and Democrats.
“If Trump fires Robert Mueller, few will be surprised. But if that happens, as the Department of Justice is thrown into chaos, as the American public sees its clearly expressed support for the special counsel disregarded, as the vital inquiry into the integrity of American elections stalls, as protesters take to the streets in a show of outrage at the affront to the rule of law, as the 2018 midterms morph into a referendum on the administration, and as American democracy reels into unknown territory, the House of Representatives should immediately impeach the president,” wrote Conor Friedersdorf in The Atlantic.
While acknowledging impeachment is “undesirable,” Friedersdorf argued keeping Trump in office “would be too risky. To trust him would be too reckless. Prudence would require his removal.”
