JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Maybe it’s just a matter of degree, but I’m not sure I’ve seen President Trump contrast as starkly as he did today his own legitimacy (63 million votes/304 electoral votes in 2016!) with what he portrays as the utter illegitimacy of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller (“never got a vote!” as Trump put it).

His attacks on the rule of law are legion at this point, but watch him today and see if he doesn’t have a heightened sense of urgency and an alarming new tone.
