Excellent Editorial from Waco Tribune- Leave Robert Mueller Alone To Finish Investigation

Is it possible to have a nuanced opinion about the Robert Mueller investigation into allegations of electoral collusion between the Trump circle and Russians? In today’s political climate, lots of knees are jerking left and right — calls to fire Mueller and demands for invocation of the 25th Amendment to eject President Trump from office as mentally unfit.

Both courses would be disastrous. The former would confirm beyond any doubt that Trump has indeed spent the past tumultuous year conspiring to obstruct justice and considers himself above our laws. It would stamp the Republicans as stooges happy to overlook Russian intrigue to undermine our nation’s electoral integrity (however successful or unsuccessful) and sow dissent among Americans, just to retain political power.....

t’s unfortunate that Robert Mueller wasn’t more discriminating in selecting his team, particularly an FBI agent whose emails reflect a sloppy anti-Trump bias some Republicans now cite as grounds for shutting down the entire inquiry. Yet it’s relevant that Mueller’s investigation has already yielded critical developments, including admissions by two Trump campaign officials that they lied. Trump’s own stunningly inconsistent statements on all this demand Mueller — a Republican, incidentally — be allowed to complete his work unmolested.

Saturday Trump vowed his cooperation with the Mueller investigation: “When you’ve done nothing wrong, let’s be open and get it over with because, honestly, it’s very, very bad for our country. It’s making our country look foolish.” Let’s for once take Trump at his word because, to carry his logic further, firing Mueller and ending a legitimate investigation would leave us a crippled republic where political lackeys coronate autocrats unaccountable to the law and scheming enemies abroad celebrate our damnable myopia and ebbing good judgment.
