Donald Trump learned all the wrong lessons from impeachment and Mueller

It has been said that it is better to journey hopefully than to arrive. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to the institutions that make American democracy function. Process matters. In fact, it matters more than any particular result. A good result may address the needs of the moment. But a good process will serve the country long after the result you were so desperate to get has been forgotten.

Unfortunately, in the heat of the political moment, both former special counsel Robert Mueller and the House of Representatives forgot this and put practical considerations ahead of establishing principle.

Mueller for the most part did an immensely thorough job of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 elections, except in one critical respect. For much of his investigation, Mueller sought to negotiate an interview with President Donald Trump. Had it been literally anyone else, rather than negotiate, Mueller would simply have asked him for an interview and brought him before the grand jury if he refused. Instead, Mueller spent months seeking Trump’s consent.
