“In [Pres­i­dent] Trump’s first seven months in of­fice, the stock mar­ket boomed and the United States faced no full-blown na­tional-se­cu­rity cri­sis. But what if the economy col­lapses, or the coun­try faces a ma­jor do­mes­tic ter­ror­ist at­tack or even nu­clear war? What if Mueller finds ev­i­dence that Trump col­luded with the Rus­sians—and Trump fires not just Mueller but also scores of oth­ers in the Jus­tice Department, and par­dons him­self and ev­ery­one else in­volved? These are not crazy pos­si­bil­i­ties. The Con­sti­tu­tion has held thus far and might con­tinue to do so un­der more-ex­treme cir­cum­stances. But it also might not.” Jack Gold­smith in The At­lantic
