Special Adviser Robert S. Muller III leaves for a meeting on Capitol Hill in Washington in 201
President Trump proposed Wednesday that he was in no hurry to fire any special fire counsel Robert S. Mueller III or Mueller's boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein. But that did not prevent thousands of people across the country from planning protests if President Mueller and Rosenstein were to give the boots off the Russian investigation.
The police of a city is already preparing for the worst.  Pittsburgh Bureau of Police has ordered its plainclothes police to bring full uniform and combat uniforms to work "until further notice" from Thursday.
"We received information about a possible large-scale protest in the Central Business District" Read an internal email from Victor Joseph, commander of the main crime, after a copy that was made by a WTAE Reporters received and confirmed by Pittsburgh's mayor. The e-mail was sent to civilian police after Pittsburgh's mayor Bill Peduto
"There is a conviction that President Trump will soon release Special Prosecutor Mueller," continued Joseph's e-mail. "This would lead to a major protest within 24 hours of the bombing, and the protest would be semi-spontaneous and would most likely be short-term."
"We could be needed to help with a major protest," Joseph added to the e-mail.
The memo, which circulated on Twitter, quickly raised questions about what might have spurred the agency's preparations.
Wendell Hissrich, director of public safety in Pittsburgh, said in a statement that while the authorities received information about possible events, "they did not estimate the credibility of the potential for disruption, and we have no knowledge of the president's decision-making process . "
" The Pittsburgh Police Bureau receives daily information that we evaluate and prepare for the event, "Hissrich said. "Events can include anything from extreme weather to potential demonstrations, and often the events we are preparing for do not happen, but with great caution we try to prepare adequately for an appropriate response."
In the Indeed, plans are in the pipeline for potentially major protests if Trump should shoot at Müller. Thousands of people in cities across the country have registered to participate in a series of "emergency" protests called "Nobody is above the law".
"Donald Trump could be preparing to break the law and we will not allow it," the group says on its website. "Trump will cause a constitutional crisis if he fires or tries to compromise the investigation in a different way with the Special Adviser Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller."
"Our response in the hours after a potential seizure of power will dictate what happens next – whether the Congress will stand up to Trump or allow it to move our democracy towards authoritarianism," the group said.

If news about a Muller fire broke before 3pm. on every day the rally began at 6 pm this day. If the news broke off after 3:00 pm, the protest would begin at 12:00 the following day.

Peduto fired back on the "Conspiracies" on Twitter Police Notice "does not claim to know what the President is going to do, it does not mean that people can not legitimately assemble, stating that you may have to help It's called preparation. "
" A commander tells officers to bring uniforms, and that's becoming a constitutional issue, "Peduto said. "Conspiracy theories come from the right … and from the left."
Peduto said WTAE that city officials want to be "precautionary, especially on something that is unparalleled in American history. "
Hissrich also told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette that he specifically asked detectives who work in the main crime unit and investigate crimes like murders, robberies, break-ins, sexual assault and drugs to their Bring uniforms and protective gear to work.
"You can not have officers in a suit and coat," Hissrich said. "But part of the uniform is the proper equipment they have."
According to The New York Times, Trump tried to get White Household Donald McGahn to fire Muller, but stepped back when McGahn threatened to quit.
Trump has repeatedly said that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections is part of a "joke". He tweeted that the investigation "will be conducted by all Democrat loyalists or people who worked for Obama.Most violent is Müller (except Rosenstein, who has signed FISA & Comey letter)." While Trump Müller Many Republicans have urged him not to do so.
After months of negotiating a possible bill to protect Muller fired by Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) Said on Tuesday that such legislation was "unnecessary."
