New York Times Calls On GOP To Protect Rule Of Law From Donald Trump


In a somber editorial, The New York Times has called on the Republican Party to protect the rule of law from Donald Trump amid indications that he may fire special counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to shut down the Russian collusion investigation into his presidential campaign. The online editorial, which will reportedly take up an entire page in Monday’s print edition, begins with a quote from Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah): “This great nation can tolerate a president who makes mistakes. But it cannot tolerate one who makes a mistake and then breaks the law to cover it up.” Hatch was speaking about former president Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
