For John, BLUF: The Democrats remind me of the phrase from my childhood: "You would bite off your nose to spite your face." Nothing to see here; just move along.
This was back on 10 April 2018. It is from The Hill, by Reporter Jordain Carney.
Here is the lede plus one:
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) warned President Trump on Tuesday that removing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would spark a "constitutional crisis" given the Justice Department official's role overseeing the special counsel probe.I would think the Senate Minority Leader threatening the President of the United States, a member of the other party, is, of and in itself, a Constitutional Crisis. One can only conclude that if the Democrats get their "Blue Wave" in November that Senator Schumer and his ilk will come after the President hammer and tong. It will be ugly and it will be just the playing out of a Constitutional Crisis in which the Democrats continue to dispute the results of the 2016 Election.
"I’d like to make something crystal clear to the president: Mr. President, any attempt to remove Rod Rosenstein will create the exact same constitutional crisis as if you fired special counsel [Robert] Mueller," Schumer told reporters on Tuesday.
And think what this will mean for 2020. If the Democrats win the White House in that election, say with Joe Biden at the head of their ticket, smearing all Republicans as Racists, will there be any self-respecting Republican who will accept the outcome as fair and legitimate?
