This is embarrassing to horrifying.

And so President Obama remains the only President to not have a special prosecutor appointed since the concept was implemented during Carter’s term. Trump may have set a record for the shortest amount of time passed before such an appointment – though I haven’t checked that.

Prior to that, of course we know about Nixon. Before that there was Harry Truman – special prosecutor to investigate alleged IRS abuses. Before that it was Calvin Coolidge over Teapot Dome. Obama aside, it appears that the special prosecutor is a permanent fixture in American politics. Maybe we should amend the Constitution and make it a fourth branch of government.
