unprecedented role in blocking justice

Quotes from Murray Waas in the National Journal about how the de facto President's decision personally to block an investigation is unprecedented.

I agree. When Nixon tried something like this, at least Attorney General Elliott Richardson (and others) had the decency to resign rather than allow the president to block justice so nakedly. (The official who agreed to do Nixon's dirty work? Robert Bork.) But nobody in this de facto Administration has the slightest sense of decency, apparently. And no, the President does NOT get involved in deciding who should and should not have security clearances; this is truly unprecendented and frankly a bit chilling.

The whole episode is further proof that this regime's ruling philosophy is quite simply, The president is always right.
