Dem Sen Warner Warns Trump Against ‘Firing’ Mueller, ‘Issuing Pardons’

Wednesday, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the ranking Democratic  member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned President Donald Trump that firing FBI special counsel Robert Mueller or “interfering with his investigation by issuing pardons” could provoke a “constitutional crisis.”

Warner said, “Firing Mr. Mueller or any other of the top brass involved in this investigation would not only call into question this administration’s commitment to the truth, but also to our most basic concept, rule of law. It also has the potential to provoke a constitutional crisis. In the United States of America, no one, no one is above the law, not even the president.”

He added, “Congress must make clear to the president that firing the special counsel or interfering with his investigation by issuing pardons of essential witnesses is unacceptable and would have immediate and significant consequences.”
