On the heels of today’s stunning raid of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s office in Trump Tower, the president gave unvetted remarks to the press pool which ultimately led to a discussion about the future of special counsel Robert Mueller.

After one reporter asked why he doesn’t fire Mueller, Trump responded by suggesting that he should, before lambasting the man responsible for investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.

Trump’s comments are especially confused, claiming that his basis for removing Mueller is that he has “found nothing.” Of course, the special counsel’s probe is still ongoing and far from having uncovered “nothing.” A staggering 22 indictments have been levied thus far, including against former campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, among others.

While Trump launches baseless attacks about the legitimacy of Mueller’s already-fruitful probe, the future of our democracy hinges upon the special counsel’s ability to continue doing his job. If Trump attempts to obstruct justice again, rest assured he will face bipartisan opposition unparalleled in American history.
