Breaking: For seven consecutive months, President Trump has not fired Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This qualifies as news in the context of last week’s New York Times blockbuster story about what turned out to be a non-event: Six months ago, Trump considered cashiering Mueller but met stiff resistance from the White House counsel and never took any serious steps to follow through. This has, again, focused attention on the effort by Democrats and a few Republicans who are proposing legislation to bar the president from dismissing the prosecutor, who is an executive-branch subordinate. These lawmakers clearly missed school the day the separation of powers was taught.
