Jeffrey Toobin a few minutes ago on James Comey’s firing by Donald Trump: “It’s a grotesque abuse of power by the President of the United States. This is the kind of thing that goes on in non-democracies, that when there is an investigation that reaches near the…leader of a non-democracy, they fire the people who are in charge of the investigation…This is something that is not within the American political tradition…This is not normal. This is not politics as usual. This is something that is completely outside how American law is supposed to work…This is a political act when the President is under investigation…I mean, what kind of country is this?”
