Democrats from the House and Senate sent a letter to President Donald Trump on Friday warning him against using the recently released Republican memo as a "pretext" to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"Firing Rod Rosenstein, DOJ (Department of Justice) leadership, or Bob Mueller could result in a constitutional crisis of the kind not seen since the Saturday night massacre," the Democrats wrote, referring to President Richard Nixon's firing of the Watergate scandal special prosecutor in the 1970s.
