I didn't say I agreed with the rule. I said it was the rule.

And people who think they're about to get fired become whistleblowers all the time, to get the protection.
Ha ha.

How is it a rule that a president cannot fire the head of the FBI while there's an investigation ongoing?  That would mean no FBI head can ever be fired.

So far there is no evidence that there was any collusion by Trump on which to blow any whistle.

Then he ought to have done it immediately. 


But there is no rule that said he had to.

If they choose to exploit the system when the President is weak and the vultures are circling, you're correct.

Yes, all they have to do is launch an investigation against the President and it could well be considered obstruction of justice to fire him at that time.

But Ruby, it was other monkeys doing it!

(Yes, yes, I know they're apes, but ape just isn't as insulting as monkey.)

Alright, alright, I'll pick out a good kitten video for you.



This is what is known as an Earth "kitten" correct?
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Do you really not understand? Oh, of course you do! Trump can fire people the same way Nixon did.  He can fire Mueller too, or at least make sure he's fired.

Why would he want to do that? Mueller is just a very good prosecutor who is getting to the bottom of the issue that will clear Trump of all wrongdoing. Comey was only trying to do the same.

And that's why Trump is happy with the ongoing investigation, right?

Anyone who hasn't heard enough about CIA/Deep State bullshit regarding the Presidential election will probably enjoy seeing the first five minutes or so of this Sane Progressive youtube video:

Oh, sure.  If I were being investigated for a non-crime for which there was no evidence of my involvement, I would love to have an incredibly biased prosecutor leaking fake news about me to an incredibly biased press.  I'd especially like the part about indicting people I work with in order to threaten them with prison if they don't testify against me.

Yeah.  Who wouldn't like that?
