President Trump: Don't let history repeat itself

Firing Mueller, Rosenstein or Sessions would be a fundamental blow to the rule of law in the United States. Trump should learn a lesson from President Richard Nixon, who in 1973 fired Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor investigating Watergate, in an attempt to curb or end that investigation. Instead, that move marked the beginning of the end of Nixon's presidency. An assault on the Mueller investigation would have the same disastrous outcome for Trump.
