Scarborough: If Trump Fires Mueller that Would Be a ‘Saturday Night Massacre 2017 Style’

‘I think there actually has been a little bit of a sense of frustration’

EXCERPT:

HUNT: "Look, I think that montage you played of Republicans who are all saying, 'Look, this isn’t a witch hunt, let Mueller do his job,' they’re reflecting the reality of their own lives which is that a lot of them think privately, will acknowledge, they do think that this investigation is going somewhere and they don’t want to be on the hook for it. They would like for it to wrap up as quickly as possible, and they don’t want to have to be defending every day a president who is — if he were to take this action and fire Bob Mueller, that would be a huge problem for all of these Republicans." 
SCARBOROUGH: "That would be — that would be Saturday night massacre, 2017 style."
