EXCERPT:

MILLER: "This isn’t like all of Trump’s other attempts to interfere with the investigation. He’s reached over and found the one person among dozens of political appointees at the Justice Department who has a preordained hostility, publicly stated hostility to the investigation. I think for people in Congress, they need to step up and object to this. I think people — the broad public, this is the time to maybe take to the streets and say this is not what you expect out of the Government. I have a message for people at the Justice Department. There are a number of senior political appointees at the Justice Department. Republican appointees who believe in the rule of law and believe in this investigation, believe in what Bob Mueller and Rosenstein has done. The country needs to hear from them in the next few days. This is a crisis moment. They need to step forward and make their voices heard in mass resignations, if necessary, to say they just will not stand for this kind of abuse of the Justice Department’s independence.”
