Trump is probably going to pardon Flynn, among others, and his supporters are urging him to dissolve the Russian investigation. Flynn was given a deal to provide prosecutory ammo on a bigger fish, and the number of fish bigger than Flynn can be counted on like two fingers.

I think a constitutional crisis is all-but-inevitable. The train is coming, and we're running out of tracks. The real question is, on which side will Republicans break? These aren't the Republicans of the Nixon era who put country over party.

"It doesn't matter to them that Mueller is a decorated combat Marine, professional prosecutor, and — ahem — Republican who has been universally revered for his probity. No less an authority than Newt Gingrich said on May 17: "Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity." But now that Mueller is closing in on Trump, Gingrich scoffs, "How can you seriously say this guy (Mueller) is neutral?" and claims: "At the very top, the Justice Department and the FBI became corrupted.""

Not at all. Trump as President has the authority and power as the chief Law official in the land, to pardon and fire anyone he wishes on a federal level, but specifically to this article, the Justice Department and that includes special investigators.

Now politically, he'd pay a price for sure, but legally and constitutionally, he is well within his right to do so.

Not sure if Turian heaven is the same as yours, but if this thing goes sideways and we both end up there, meet me at the bar."
