Progressive organizations across the nation are preparing contingency plans for the possibility that President Trump will provoke a constitutional crisis by firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Dallas organizer Liz Wally says "This is a protest we don't want to have", but we have to be prepared.
UPDATE: Now that the FBI has seized records from Trump's attorney Michael Cohen, Trump is practically exploding with wrath and no longer denying any consideration of firing Mueller -- or Sessions or Rosenstein just to get Mueller out. THIS MAY BLOW UP ANY DAY NOW! KEEP WATCHING!!
If this happens, then protests will begin at Dallas City Hall.
IF MUELLER IS FIRED BEFORE 2 PM, THEN PROTESTS WILL TAKE PLACE AT 5 PM.
IF MUELLER IS FIRED AFTER 2 PM, THEN THE PROTEST WILL TAKE PLACE AT NOON THE FOLLOWING DAY.
This is nationwide. See more at Nobody Is Above The Law.

The Leadership Council is a special group within the Dallas County Democratic Party of elected officials who provide financial and leadership support to the party. Our elected officials understand that a strong local party is key to their own success during their initial election and subsequent re-elections. This financial support allows the party to provide more comprehensive voter outreach for candidates and develop expansive “Get Out The Vote” efforts. See the list at this page.
