Bloomberg (March 3)

The submission of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “long-awaited final report…will be only the start of an explosive chain of events. There will be a struggle in Congress, on cable TV and social media and probably in the courts over how much must be disclosed. There also will be an epic political fight over whether the findings implicate President Donald Trump in wrongdoing that may even merit his impeachment.”

“If Trump or his administration move to impede or end Mueller’s work, the president will do so at his own peril. Many in the country—us included—would see that as an attack on the rule of law and a blatant effort to subvert justice.”

“No one knows if Donald Trump is serious or trolling when he tweets,” but the “damage from firing Mr. Mueller is so predictable that’s it hard to believe even Mr. Trump would tempt such a fate.”

“It is futile to speculate how much Russia’s efforts succeeded in altering the outcomes of votes and poisoning politics. The answer is unknowable. But the conspiracies are wrong in themselves and their extent raises worries about the vulnerabilities of Western democracies. If the West is going to protect itself against Russia and other attackers, it needs to treat Mr Mueller’s indictments as a rallying cry.”

“Donald Trump should be extremely worried about his presidency.” It’s easy to see why he “is still ruminating about firing Mueller,” the special counsel, even though that “would be politically disastrous, fueling impeachment fever…. His presidency is imperiled so long as Mueller compels witnesses to testify, accumulates written evidence and traces the myriad of ties between the Trump team and Russians.”
