whatever the outcome of Muellers investigation, America is establishing new precedents. One precedent is that President Trump fired the FBI directorand Congress did nothing. Another is that Trump admitted the FBIs investigation of his campaign motivated the firingand Congress did nothing. A third precedent is that Trump fired the attorney general after having railed against him publicly for refusing to intervene in the investigationand Congress has done nothing. A fourth precedent is that Trump circumvented the Justice Departments order of succession so he could replace the attorney general with an individual who has directed partisan attacks at the special counsel, has described publicly how a new attorney general could undermine the investigation, has had a personal and political relationship with an individual involved in the investigation, and has been associated with a company that is the focus of a separate FBI investigation.
