Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich published an op-ed on how the actions of President Donald Trump reflect on the presidency. “Firing the attorney general for standing up to the president? Check. Attempting to interfere with a Justice Department investigation? Check. Threatening the FBI director? That’s a new one. Revealing classified information to the Russians? Also a new one. And most of that was just this week’s news. In retrospect, Richard Nixon starts looking better and better,” said Estrich.
