Lawmaker Just Threatened Trump With ‘Veto-Proof Special Prosecutor’ If He Fires Mueller

Appearing on MSNB’s ‘Morning Joe,’ Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) revealed that Congress would pass a veto-proof special prosecutor statute in both chambers if President Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I believe if he did fire Bob Mueller, you would see a special prosecutor statute go through both houses by veto-proof majorities and we’d end up with Bob Mueller in charge of a new investigation with new authorities,” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked how the Russia probe would continue in such a case.

King’s comments follow weeks of speculation as to whether Trump will fire the special counsel, who has a wide authority to investigate possible links between Russia and Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“To fire Mueller in the middle of this would be just a breach of the work of the Congress, of the people, of the laws, and of the Constitution.”

“No person is above the law,” King added. “Including the president of the United States.”
