US President, Donald J. Trump, has been in the job 666 days today, 16 November, having taken office on 20 January 2017, and has been busy living up to his 'devilish' reputation by hinting that Robert Mueller, in charge of the 'Russia investigation', could be fired soon.
Trump, as he is prone to do, tweeted frantically yesterday, saying that the well-respected ex-FBI man Mueller's investigation was a "total mess" and "absolutely nuts", that investigators were "threatening people to provide the answers they want", and that "they are screaming and shouting at people."
Mr Trump added that no collusion between his election campaign and Russia had been found, and that the inquiry is a "witch hunt".
Some political commentators in the US have said that Trump is becoming less-and-less coherent as time goes on, although this is scarcely measurable, so incoherent has he been throughout his time as president. It's fair to say, however, that he's becoming rather more dangerous as time goes on. As desperation begins to set in, ever more risky chances have to be taken, and Trump has now entered this stage of the game. He plans to hurdle Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein - who has been confirmed by the Senate - in favor of Matthew Whitaker - who has not - so that the latter can fire Mueller.
Even Judge Andrew Napolitano, whose birthday - get this! - is on 6 June, speaking on FOX News, has said that this cannot be done, and that it would be unconstitutional.
Let's wait and see if Trump cares one iota about the constitution.
