House Democrats have a “break the glass” scenario in place if Trump tries to fire Robert Mueller.

House Democrats say they’re also ready to act as a backstop if Trump follows through on more than 18 months of pent-up angst and fires Mueller or tries to meddle with the special counsel’s work through a major shakeup at the Justice Department.

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has already pledged to make sure Mueller’s “documentation is preserved” and the likely next House speaker also holds in her back pocket the threat of launching impeachment hearings against Trump if the president tries to oust Mueller or if the special counsel’s investigators ultimately uncover a smoking gun involving criminal behavior.

Democrats are even prepping a break-glass scenario in case there’s a Nixon-era Saturday Night Massacre during which Trump fires his current DOJ leadership and tries to shutter the Mueller probe in the process. If that happens, senior Democratic officials say Mueller would likely get an immediate summons to Capitol Hill for nationally televised testimony about his findings.

“I think you could expect Democrats to take pieces of what they shut down and expose it publicly,” said a high-ranking Democratic policy adviser familiar with Pelosi’s planning. “This is a report paid for with taxpayer dollars. So taxpayers would have a right to know what Mr. Mueller found.”

Man, I cannot even begin to tell you how good it feels to have the grownups back in charge.

I think this was why Trump was making kissy faces at Nancy Pelosi during that completely off the rails press conference yesterday.  

She represents everything that terrifies him, a strong Democratic woman with subpoena power. 

The very idea would make his little mushroom shrink right up inside his chubby body.

    The Democrats and Mueller are playing chess. Meanwhile, Trump is off in a corner fingerpainting with his own shit.

    The report should be public no matter what happens, we deserve to know what our “employee” in the WH did to get elected.

    OT-FYI ““We want to definitely turn Harris county upside down in criminal justice reform,” Erica Hughes, who was elected to a criminal court position, said in a Facebook post.

    Democrats won all 59 judicial races in Harris county in Tuesday’s midterm elections. In one of the most eye-catching and significant results, the long-time incumbent Republican county judge, Ed Emmett – in effect, the county’s chief executive – lost to Lina Hidalgo, a 27-year-old first-time candidate who immigrated from Colombia as a teenager.”

      So the Palins might need to reevaluate moving to Texas?

    It will be so nice to see a Pelosi, an empathic human being, as Speaker.

    Ryan always seemed more the type to be mining coal instead, deep under the earth’s crust.

    All I can think about is all the judges McConnell is going to ram through now that he has a larger majority. They’ll be poisoning our judicial system for decades.

    Ginsberg is in the hospital with three broken ribs. What if Trump gets a third SCOTUS nomination. They’ll be worse than Kavanaughty, if that’s possible, and the courts will be 6-3 for DECADES. McConnell will try to stack the district courts too. If anything is appealed beyond the states, we’ll be screwed at every level.

    We are so royally screwed.
