Preparation for protests if Trump fires Mueller

New York, April 20: Police in the US city of Pittsburgh are preparing for rioting should President Donald Trump fire special counsel in Russia probe Robert Mueller, a memo said. A memo from the police commander instructed detectives to bring riot gear to work “until further notice”, the BBC reported. The internal email said “there is a belief” that Trump will soon fire Mueller, prompting “large-scale” protests. “The protest would be semi-spontaneous and more than likely happen on short notice,” police commander Victor Joseph wrote in the email obtained by CBS News. Democratic advocacy group MoveOn.org has organised the demonstration in Pittsburgh if Mueller is fired, but according to CNN, it is unclear if the police memo was a result of the planned protest.
