America as Venezuela

When the leader of a country successfully interferes with a criminal investigation into his aides and appointees, as well as potentially himself, this is not the work of a constitutional president but of a  dictator. The future of America now lies with Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller. Good luck, guys.

Said one federal prosecutor “As my father used to say, history goes forward and backward. And things go backward when the trust in bedrock institutions—which are trustworthy, by the way—is diminished for the benefit of a few. It accelerates, and you wake up one day and we’re in Venezuela.”
