The anti-Trump Resistance “take to the streets if Mueller is fired” talking points were sent out last week, and former Attorney General Eric Holder joined in by taking an approach his former boss made famous:
ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office. If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both. The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative.

It’s a little ironic, right? And Holder is not the person to be serving up that lecture:
AG held in contempt of Congress is still the worst AG ever. https://t.co/rpN1ZJMJb8

You caused hundreds of Mexicans and at least 1 Border Patrol Agent to get killed thru your illegal gun running operation then you lied to Congress about it. That was my red line and you crossed it. Gofy.

Weird, I would’ve thought the red line would be a secret gun operation that got a US citizen killed. https://t.co/MDNyL10GIG

Says the first Attorney General in American history to be held in contempt of Congress, who also tried to cover up #FastAndFurious, which armed Mexican drug lords & got people killed. https://t.co/XuoTav2rYC

They do seem to be managing to bulking up their mailing list as a result though.
