Monday, the president called it the "Russian Witch Hunt Hoax" and blamed Attorney Jeff Sessions for allowing it to continue.Mueller's investigation is moving forward nonetheless, and as it does courts may have to confront questions with minimal if any historical precedent.In Trump's view, for instance, he is entitled to fire an FBI director – Comey or any other – for any reason. He can similarly terminate an FBI investigation given the constitutional powers he enjoys, the president's lawyers say.Trump has already proved willing to break from protocol through granting pardons outside the Justice Department's pardon attorney, which historically reviews clemency petitions and makes recommendations on worthy candidates.In the end, the Mueller investigation raises significant questions about how to balance a president's right to manage the executive branch as he believes with the public interest that he be subject to the law.
