Imagine if President Trump, on the weekend after the upcoming midterm elections, suddenly forced out Jeff Sessions, Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller.
For the record, that would be the removal of the attorney general, the deputy attorney general and the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.
And imagine Trump also shut down the offices occupied by Mueller's team of prosecutors — lock, stock and barrel.
Just like that.
Impossible, you say? Unprecedented? In fact, it is neither.
