James Risen writes: 

Given what we now know about the events of the last two years, Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre resembles a routine weekend in the Trump administration.

THROUGH HIS UNRELENTING efforts to obstruct the Trump-Russia investigation since its inception, President Donald Trump has inflicted a slow-motion Saturday Night Massacre on the American people, a constitutional nightmare that has lasted two years instead of one night.

And it is still going on, despite the fact that special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation. Trump now has a willing lackey in Attorney General William Barr, who is aiding and abetting the president’s ongoing efforts to control the Justice Department and corrupt the country’s system of checks and balances.

The original Saturday Night Massacre ended far more quickly than Trump’s version.

It's significant that Mueller found significant suspicious interactions between the Trump campaign and Russia, but Mueller decided to downplay their importance. As Risen says, "The report details the frequent and often mysterious direct and indirect contacts between the Trump campaign and the Russians, including instances in which intermediaries for Moscow told people in the Trump circle that Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton. But in several cases, Mueller never got to the bottom of those interactions, sometimes because people lied to him or refused to be interviewed, or were in Russia and out of reach.

In investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russia, Mueller limited himself to the question of whether he had evidence to connect Trump-Russia contacts directly to a Russian cyberoffensive against the Democratic Party, particularly the effort by Russian military intelligence to hack the Democrats and steal emails and other materials.

But that narrow scope meant that Mueller effectively ignored all the unresolved contacts between Trump and Russia if he could not find evidence linking them directly to Moscow's cyberoffensive."
