Desmond King writes on 'Donald Trump's bonfire of the protocols'

Professor Desmond King has written for Prospect magazine on developments in Donald Trump's presidency, and in particular the sacking of the Director of the FBI, James Comey.

The polarisation of the parties and their voters has never been so marked, reducing the room for compromise."
