Maybe, but I don't think it's helpful to become complacent about things like this. I have actually never in my life heard of all the federal prosecutors resigning from a case in protest because the president insisted on exerting improper influence on the proceedings.

Crickets from the resident conservatives about yet another example of their president acting like a mob boss, of course.
