[quote=“CommonDreams, post:1, topic:42432”]“Marc Kasowitz, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer in the Russia investigation, has boasted to friends and colleagues that he played a central role in the firing of Preet Bharara, the United States At- torney for the Southern District of New York, according to four people familiar with the conversations.
[He] told Trump, ‘This guy is going to get you,’ according to a person familiar with Kasowitz’s account.”[/quote] Unfortunately, the entire Department of Justice is not – as it should be – a subsidiary of the Supreme Court, whose Judges and Attorneys serve for fixed periods of time (10, 12 or 15 years, depending upon their position) after being nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate, and who can be removed from office early only by a 2/3 (or maybe 3/5) vote of the Senate, NOT by the President.
It’s too late to correct this situation in regards to the current crisis, and fixing it would require a major amend- ment to the Constitution. Holding a Constitutional Convention in this day and age could be dangerous in the extreme . . .
