Trump right now is playing with this idea just to see the reaction. Except for a couple of the MSNBC shows, the press is saying “Meh.” Sure, he can do it if he wants to…
Which means he will. And the GOP would much rather deal with the fallout of cutting this thing off right away in preference to having Mueller reveal in six months that their guy has turned out to be a Russian agent.
That’s why he’ll get away with it. Who’s gonna stop him?
