Rule of law be damned – President Trump was mad as hell and casting around looking for a reason to fire James Comey.
Less than a day after the firing of FBI Director James Comey it’s becoming clear that Trump has conspired with his attorney general and deputy attorney general to make any sort of realistic oversight or investigation of him and his administration as difficult as possible – if not impossible.
All political power is being concentrated in the office of the president.
All law enforcement power is being concentrated in the office of the attorney general and when it comes to enforcing the law regarding the Trump campaign and its contacts with elements of the Russian government – in the office of the deputy attorney general.
The letters justifying Comey’s firing were generated by a man who had been in office less than two weeks and acted upon only hours after their receipt by the White House without any sort of reasonable consultation with anyone else but these three men.
They have turned their offices into black holes into which things are meant to disappear without investigation or enforcement.
