For John, BLUF: People like Nikki keep voting to keep her as their leader in the House. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is from CBS New, out of Chicago, 2 February 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blasted President Donald Trump and House Republicans for their decision to release a controversial four-page memo alleging abuse of surveillance authority by the Justice Department and the FBI, saying it could ultimately cause a “constitutional crisis.”Why would President Trump fire either one?
“He has abdicated his responsibilities as commander in chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest,” she said of Trump. ““If the president uses this fake, horrible release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [deputy attorney general Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis.”
The thing is, President Trump strikes me as someone who would fire someone he thought needed firing without looking around on his desk for some special justification.
