The campaign to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t stop there. President Trump and members of Congress are attacking the FBI and other institutions vital to trust in government. An FBI agent warns that intelligence sources won’t risk their lives by revealing what they know. A constitutional scholar says eroding public confidence threatens the rule of law.
