Congress must protect the special counsel, justice system & U.S. constitution:

“Donald Trump has repeatedly made clear that he does not respect basic constitutional, judicial and democratic norms, and that he is willing to push the envelope to ensure self preservation when he thinks he is under threat. For these reasons, it is essential that Congress take immediate action to ensure that the President is unable to interfere with the progress of the Special Counsel’s investigation. Only when Congress makes clear to Trump that he cannot shut this investigation down or pardon himself and his allies without consequence can the American people feel confident that justice is being served. It’s critical that Congress safeguard our Democracy and the rule of law, and they can start by showing that the President is not above either.”
