Even if Trump Tries to Fire Mueller, He Can’t Fire the Grand Jury

December 31, 2018 | Media News

Professor Peter Shane published an article in Slate titled, Even if Trump Tries to Fire Mueller, He Can’t Fire the Grand Jury.

“Uncertainty as to the future of the Russia investigation will surely not abate amid the president’s Twitter storms,” Shane writes. “But as Americans contemplate the ways in which the Trump administration has blasted through norms essential to democracy and the rule of law—and the prospect of more to come—it is worth considering that we might have in place a constitutional framework that allows the courts to play a checking-and-balancing role that will allow the facts to come to light.”
