A thug is going to behave like a thug. Law enforcement has been his enemy for decades. So should we be surprised if he goes full gangster:
After some early missteps, the new defensive team of Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani is engaged in a bold and brash attempt to stand the Mueller investigation into Russian election meddling on its head.
Embellishing on President Trump’s repeated allegations of a “witch hunt” and a “Democratic hoax,” they have pivoted from the central question of possible collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and the Kremlin to a major accusation of an FBI plot to oust the elected president.
It is an outlandish exercise seeking to cast the nation’s chief law-enforcement agency into a mafia-like hit operation straight out of a gangland movie, with Mr. Trump as the orchestrator and Mr. Giuliani as his legal fixer.
