Trump will have a hard time stopping Russia probe even if he fires Mueller

Democrats, for their part, have been arguing for months that Congress needs to act to pass additional protections for Mueller. But our review of the history of special prosecutor investigations suggests that Mueller’s investigation is more secure than it might seem — and that more protections don’t necessarily produce more effective prosecutions.

2. I agree, Trump and the GOP do what they want. Make up the rules as they go.

People who keep saying Trump can't do this or that, are missing an essential dynamic. Trump and McConnell do not follow the rules, they take what they want, and could care less what people think about them.

And the GOP congress would not stop Trump for firing Mueller, since they also have taken money from the Russians.

3. Bingo

 

That article detailed history.

We have entered a time that can't be compared.
Except to pre-Nazi Germany that is.
