Top US justice official says he will not follow any unlawful order from Trump to fire Russia investigator Robert Mueller

From the Huffpost

The man acting as the nation’s top law enforcer when it comes to the Russian hacking investigation said Tuesday that it’s “theoretically” possible for him to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but he’d never listen to an unlawful order to do so from President Donald Trump.

“I’m not going to follow any orders unless I believe that those are lawful and appropriate orders,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing.
