It's a necessary investigation...
No, it is not - unless you support dictatorial powers for the president. It is pure political revenge designed to distract from the fact that the administration redacted portions of the report they claim exonerates Trump entirely. As long as the unredacted version is unavailable, that claim is bogus and complaints about it are unfounded. Only in dictatorships (see: Putin's Russia) do leaders take revenge on political opponents.

Yes.The Mueller thing was indeed political revenge. Durham was hired to end this nonsense,find the DNC criminals ,and lock 'em up.
No, it was not. What the Trump administration is doing is political revenge. Mueller is a Republican and was not selected by the Democrats, who had no power to do so at the time in any case. Only in dictatorships like Russia to leaders take revenge against political opponents, and that is what Trump is trying to turn the United States into.

The President is not doing the investigation. He said that he didn't know Barr had appointed a Special Prosecutor, but he was glad to see Barr did.

It's necessary to investigate and expose the criminal activity of the Obama Administration, and they already have much of the information they need. Some of crooks have resigned, but because of the seriously of what they did, or try to do, they need to be prosecuted.

Whenever an Administration breaks the law, as the Obama Administration did, they are the dictators. Trump is not a dictator. That's hyperbole and you know it.

Trump is responsible for the entire executive branch.

That makes no sense on a couple of different levels. Obama never acted as a dictator, never talked like a dictator, never admired dictators. Trump does all of those things. Plus, breaking the law (something I do not admit occurred) is not part of the definition of "dictator."
Trump is not a dictator.
Not yet. But he wants to be, and is trying to be.

He’s not a special prosecutor. And if you believe Trump didn’t know about this, I have some oceanfront property in AZ that you’d be interested in
Why would Trump lie about it?

I heard him say he was surprised and I believe he's telling the truth.

Btw, Durham is a Prosecutor. Special? We will see.

There is nothing dictatorial about getting to the bottom of how and why Trump was investigated. Was he spied on? Did the FBI lie to the FISA judges?

Trump says good things about Kim, for example, because he wants to make a deal with him. If he continued to trash him, there would be no deal.

Breaking the law does not mean being a dictator, but you are going to find that a sitting President tried to undue an duly elected POTUS and that's far worse than Watergate.

But, don't worry. If you don't think that Obama and his henchmen did anything wrong, then why the concern?
