KRAUTHAMMER: "I guess he hasn't spoken with the president either. This is quite serious because as you say, it's happened before and then within a few days, that person was gone. This is a problem for the president's self-control. The attorney general is a pillar of this administration and the president -- he's always going to have a disappointment here and there with anyone who works for him. Happens in all the administrations. If you can absorb is one issue on which he disagrees, the recusal, and you have to get rid of him, then nobody is safe and you have an intrinsically highly unstable administration reflecting instability inside the president's head. This is really bad."
