The crisis leading up to the Revolutionary War and end of King George III’s rule over the American colonies is eerily similar to today’s crisis surrounding former FBI director Robert Mueller and his Russian collusion probe, according to MSNBC guest contributor Malcolm Nance.
Nance made the following comments:
“The last time we had a crisis of this magnitude was not the civil war. The civil war at least used the precepts of the constitution to make a legal separation of the United States. It was George the Third and it’s enshrined in the declaration of the independence, other than putting troops in your house, many of these things are happening.”
Mueller is investigating whether the Trump presidential campaign illegal colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election and rumors of his firing by President Donald Trump appeared to have spurred the guest’s comment about a constitutional crisis in America.
