Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin explained why the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee who voted to advance an unconstitutional bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller were dead wrong.

First, Levin pointed out the absurd claim that firing Mueller would be an impeachable obstruction of the Russia investigation.

“If Trump did fire Mueller, which I don’t think he should, how would that stop the Russia investigation?” Levin asked. “Somebody else would pick up the cudgel and continue to investigate Russia.”

Listen:

Levin said the Republicans who voted for the bill were “apparently illiterate when it comes to the Constitution.”

“The Senate, the House of Representatives, together Congress, has no power to stop a president of the United States from firing a special counsel. None. No power whatsoever,” Levin said. “It’s called separation of powers.”

“What the Senate Judiciary Committee did today is absolutely appalling. It’s grotesque!”
