QOTD: Michael Bloomberg has had enough

When an elected executive fires the lead investigator in the middle of a probe into his or her activities, the implications cannot be ignored. That is especially true when the decision appears to have been reverse-engineered, as seems to be the case here, with the White House recently directing the Justice Department to produce a memo providing a rationale for the firing.

To dump Comey for his handling of the Russia probe -- which Trump mentioned dismissively in his letter announcing the firing -- would be a grave obstruction of justice. In any event, it is likely to obstruct whatever is left of Trump’s legislative agenda. Comprehensive tax reform just got an awful lot harder, as did nearly every other challenge facing the nation, both foreign and domestic: infrastructure, health care, immigration, trade and others.
