Leaked Emails Show Democrats Expect Trump To Take Drastic Personnel Action in ‘Next 48 Hours’

Democrats believe President Donald Trump will take action to stop the Russia investigation this weekend and are contacting local organizers around the country to plan protests, leaked emails to The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jim Himes sent an email out to field organizers in Norwalk and other towns in his home state Friday outlining his concerns that the president will fire either Attorney General Jeff Session, FBI Director Rod Rosenstein or special counsel Robert Mueller.

A source connected to the Himes campaign told TheDCNF that the Democrats need “contingency plans” set up in case Trump takes action.

The leaked email, authored personally by Himes, says the congressman believes “that in the next 48 hours, it is more likely than not that the President acts against Attorney General Sessions, Deputy AG Rosenstein, and/or Special Counsel Mueller. His intent will be to end Mueller’s investigation.”

It is not clear how Himes has gotten this impression, but it should not be seen as an effort to drum up the base or as a fundraising effort.

“I have a hard time believing that Jim would send this out without being 85 percent certain” about the firings, the source told TheDCNF.

Himes also writes that he believes it is “likely that the President will order an attack on Syria” this weekend.

“In both cases, constitutional order and rule of law are at stake. As a consequence, it is important that we speak and act in a coordinated manner,” Himes wrote to Connecticut party officials, referencing the need for organizers to begin planning.

In the case of the president ending Mueller’s investigation, Himes told confidants that “Congress must act immediately to require the preservation of all documents and work product, and to re-establish the investigation via statue,” adding that “this must be the sole initial priority.”

As Congress acts, Himes calls for “organized, persistent and peaceful demonstrations with a clear demand must be the goal.”

Democrats are organizing protests in small towns and cities, not just locations like Washington, D.C., and New York City, according to emails seen by TheDCNF.

The firing of any Department of Justice officials will come in tandem with “an attack on Syria,” which “will likely be undertaken rapidly and remotely,” Himes says.

The congressman also notes that he believes “such an attack would be unconstitutional,” but says, “Presidents of both parties have done violence to the requirement that Congress authorize non-defensive military action,” referring to the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations.

Himes ends his email with a quote from President Abraham Lincoln and a call for action. “Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail. Without it, nothing can succeed,” he writes, adding, “You’ve proved Lincoln right several times in the last 14 months,” referring to previous anti-Trump protests. “It may be time to do it again.”

Progressive organizations like MoveOn.org have also been working with Democratic Party officials over the last 48 hours to assist in any potential protests.

Members of both organizations refer to the demonstrations as the “Mueller Firing Rapid Response event,” according to documents viewed by TheDCNF

Trump has repeatedly signaled his frustration with the direction of the Mueller probe. After FBI investigators raided the office of his attorney, Michael Cohen, on Monday, the president described the incident as “disgraceful” and an “attack on our country.”

Previous reports have alleged that Trump has oftentimes expressed his desire to end the investigation, believing it has expanded far beyond its initial scope and that it is a “witch hunt.”

    Sessions needs to GO! Firing him would be right, just and LONG overdue, whether it’s an attempt to eventually end Mueller and the democrats out-of-control witch hunt, or to just be able to advance his agenda that Sessions is holding up because he is now working for, and taking his orders from, the democrats. He HAS to go! He’s definitely not a part of Trump’s team anymore or working for the same goals for the country and We the People as is the president Trump.

    Mueller has never been an impartial investigator. He is beholden to the Clintons, and was the FBI director while Clinton was President. Sessions is too timid, and hopelessly compromised. The FBI needs to clean house, or be cleaned!

      Mueller was a signatory to the agreement to sell Uranium to Russia.
      Rosenstein was involved in the FISA warrant perjury to get surveillance on Page.
      Sessions is far too inactive to be truly loyal to the USA and Trump’s Presidency.

      They should all be fired and if the Liberal Fascists demonstrate then control these communists with the National Guard just like they did in the 60’s. Maybe some rubber bullets and water cannon, might knock some sense into them.

    What is happening is exactly what should be happening. We have a lying president and his use of twitter is giving the world a large amount of joy via twitter. He is a joke and amoral husband and father.

      And you wanted Clinton? Definitely no morals their while in the White House as a sitting President. At least Trumps past indescretions were as a private citizens and not a sitting President. Clinton set the example of an immoral President.

      Are you going to believe your CNN TV Enquirer. Can’t you think for yourself? Look at how long this Mueller investigation has been going on and on and on and what proof is there? Hillary lost and she is still going around as to why she lost. BECAUSE SHE IS A LOSER!

    He did NOT need Congressional approval! He ONLY has to have that, if he declares war on somebody. If that was the case, then Bill Clinton should’ve had his ears pinned back for the stupid military actions that he took, WITHOUT permissions! And, we ALL know Obama did a LOT worse things than that with Congress approving it. (Like that ransom he paid, IN CASH for our hostages! Something the US has NEVER done!

    Why is Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jim Himes, leaking anything? This is part of the problem in Washington. No one can be trusted anymore. He should be removed from his office or not ve allowed to attend meetings.

    The truth is Demorats don’t give a crap about the welfare of our Constitutional Republic.

    The Socialist Marxist they are, are only using this whole Russian facade as seditionist to our President as to undermine the business and sovereignty of the USA.

    It’s time to clean house and once Sessions is gone it’s time to go after the true criminals of the Obama regime and Deep State!!!

    The Mueller investigation has gone far above looking for collusion by the Republican party.It should be limited to that. But as we all know this is not collusion by Republicans but by the DNC. They lost the Presidency even after all the underhanded tricks and unlawful activity by there party. Now they are on Desperate cover up mode. If the Truth ever gets out there will probably be a civil uprising, with many Politicians going to jail or even to death for treason.

    The Democrats are trying to goad Trump into firing Mueller so they can charge him with obstruction of justice and impeach him. It is a BS trap, and I hope Trump does not walk into it.

      He can fire and the investigation will not stop. It’s a federal investigation. They’ll only assign another independent counsel and it will go on.

    What a joke… Trump does something to make the world a better place by getting the worlds power brokers to ACTIVELY condemn use of WMA.. and the Marxist’s in our own Society plan to protest. It has become the number one actively that every time Trump does something good, that the Marxists immediately throw a fit to try to deny it.
    “Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail.” and any attempt to dissuade Americans in believing what the Marxists want you to believe is going to fail… ‘Without it, nothing can succeed,”???? Seriously, this idiot, Democratic Rep. Jim Himes, has failed before he started.

    President Trump needs to instruct Sessions to fire Rosenstein for his incompetence. Should he refuse, then POTUS should fire Rosenstein and Session. Appoint someone that will reel in the Mueller investigation to the parameters it was originally intended, Russian collusion. Must look into Clinton campaign, DNC, and the Clinton Foundation involvement with Trump Dossier and Russian collusion.

    THIS IS WHAT CONCERNS ME AND PLEASE EXCUSE THE CAPS BUT IT IS IMPORTANT.
    SOMETHING THAT NO-ONE YET HAS BROUGHT UP!
    WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER CLIENTS FILES OF COHEN that the FBI took from his office? Is their information all out there with the FBI etc.??? The FBI have ruined this attorney’s business.
    Not a word from ANYONE about that! That is an atrocity which I think those clients have a good legal standing to fight and I hope they do.

    Himes should be more excited about what Clinton did when she was in office, lets investigate and then maybe Himes would have more credibility to say what he want to about Trump. Never saw him say the first word about Clinton.
