If he cannot be investigated for wrongdoing except by his own sufferance, then he is above the law.
He has been investigated, for over a year now.

He's not above the law. And any law enforcement official who has evidence of a crime is free to come forward and pursue an indictment against him. But that doesn't mean he can't fire his own employees when they go on witch hunts and act stupidly.

Mueller doesn't work for Trump.

How does the right know what Mueller has discovered in his investigation and no one else does, not Democrats, not the media, not Congressional committees, just the right...they know....wait, they know because Trump is the one telling them and they believe everything Trump and Hannity says...

which law would that be?
The constitution clearly places the President in charge of the executive branch Watchman.

There is no law anywhere that says he can't fire or order the dismissal of those who work under him. Just go ask Comey. They serve at the pleasure of the President.

If he can be in charge of the investigation against him, or those performing the investigation, then he absolutely is, in the most Nixonian fashion.

Unless, of course, he fires the LE official(s) first.

Like Republicans have ever had a problem with investigators performing witch hunts ... :rolleyes:

Yes, because all Trump has to do to get away with breaking the law is to fire anyone who investigates him. He is, in effect, buying into what Nixon told Frost:

No, because congress can impeach him if he is breaking the law. That's the check on the presidency, not some un-elected bureaucrat with an agenda like Mueller. Mueller is the one who isn't above the law. He's not above the President - who was elected and has authority over him according to our constitution.
