‘We won’t really know how to interpret the Comey firing until we know whom Trump nominates to replace him’

Dan Farber quoted by The Washington Post, May 10, 2017

If Trump nominates an independent, respected figure to replace Comey, well and good. If he nominates someone who is compromised by associations with Trump or who lacks credibility as an objective investigator. … That would be the point to start worrying in earnest about a constitutional crisis.
