Special Prosecutor is doing something that makes him unsatisfactory to Donald Trump: his job. And the more he does his job, the more that threatens to expose the many crimes committed by Trump and too many Republicans to count. Trump has actually said that he is considering it.
The big news Monday night was that President Trump is apparently thinking about firing the special counsel in charge of the federal Russia investigation, Robert S. Mueller III.
The bigger news is that Trump actually needs to be talked out of this.
Newsmax chief executive and Trump confidant Christopher Ruddy took to PBS in an interview that aired Monday evening to say he thought Trump was "considering perhaps terminating" the recently appointed Mueller. Ruddy said this shortly after visiting the White House, it should be noted, which suggests that it didn’t come out of nowhere. And it seemed to be as much a warning as a trial balloon; even before that interview aired, Ruddy and others were warning Trump strongly against that course of action.
"It could trigger something well beyond anything they ever imagined," Ruddy told Politico. "I think firing Mueller could trigger an impeachment process. It could be very dangerous. I don’t think it’d be very smart at all."…

I actually agree with Ruddey that it would not be very smart al all, and therein lies the danger. Not very smart described Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten perfectly.
Rachel Maddow discussed the rules.
Lawrence O’Donnell had two segments. In the first, he and his panel call it a tacit admission of guilt.
In the second, he examines possible Republican responses.
If he does one of two things will collapse. We will lose either the Republican Reich or the United States of America.
