As GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz warned in his House floor remarks this week, if Robert Mueller isn’t removed as Special Counsel, a coup d’etat will take place in the United States. The Left, hopeful to see Mueller take down President Trump and his closest associates, are vocally supporting members of the intelligence community against attacks from those who dismiss their assessment of Russia interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
