    • By providing President Trump with the cover to fire FBI Director James B. Comey, they betrayed the Justice Department’s long-standing tradition of independence.
    • According to the White House’s initial version of events, Comey’s firing was initiated by Rosenstein, who decided — of his own accord, during his first two weeks on the job — to launch a review of the FBI director, concluded that review and made a determination that Comey had to go. This version was implausible, and the White House offered a new accounting today.
    • But beyond even the Russia investigation lie troubling concerns about the rule of law. The president just fired an official investigating his campaign and associates, crossing a red line once unthinkable in this country.
    • The institutional checks necessary to constrain a president such as Trump are failing before our eyes.
    • Who will stand up to Donald Trump?
  • @PFTCommenter To help you get over this crushing loss, I have unblocked you for the next two hours.
