Teri Kanefield Op-Ed: Trump’s White House lawyers are trying to stop a last-minute impeachment repeat – Firing FBI Director Christopher Wray would be one more example of how Trump tramples democratic norms, even on his way out the door.

“In an autocracy, the autocrat decides who should be investigated and prosecuted. The problem with allowing the head of state to decide whom to prosecute is obvious: It opens up the temptation to prosecute political rivals. Rule of law gives way to the whims of the ruler. Trump’s attempts to force the Justice Department and the FBI to do his bidding are some of his most blatant and dangerous assaults on the rule of law.”
