We are hurtling toward yet another constitutional crisis, and supposedly moderate Republicans are once again refusing to do anything about it. For the better part of a month, Fox News and other conservative media outlets have been smearing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, all but calling him an enemy of the American people. We are, in other words, once again reaching the point when something that had seemed outlandish a few short months ago is starting to feel virtually inescapable. Now that the outriders have done their work, there is every chance that President Trump will fire Mueller within the next month. It is anybody’s guess who will win the next round in the death match between the president and the American republic.
