If you wanted Hillary for president last year and were disappointed by the election outcome, the recent revelations about how Trump was the subject of a federal criminal investigation should make you livid right about now.
The Trump presidency has exposed the tender underbelly of our system. It is vulnerable when we rely on “norms” and one side playing by the rules while the other side does whatever the fuck it wants.
Andrew Jackson said the courts could rule any way they wanted. They didn’t have an army.
That’s about where we are right now. The system is getting squishy, gelatinous, amorphous. It’s very dangerous. A system as complex as ours is going to start showing the strain.
