A better way to protect Robert Mueller

Daniel Hemel and I discuss the Tillis-Coons and the Graham-Booker bills, which seek to protect Mueller from being fired. We argue that the bills need to be strengthened. Trump can harass Mueller in many ways short of firing him (or getting him fired).

It might seem that things have calmed down since Kelly was put into place, and maybe we no longer need to worry about Mueller. But in fact we’re in the eye of the storm. When Mueller digs into Trump’s alleged financial relationships with Russian criminals, Trump may well risk the political blowback to stop Mueller in his tracks.
