Susan Estrich muses on the rule of law vs. the rule of Trump. A nugget (follow the link for the rest):
This (the rule of law–ed.) is what President Donald Trump fundamentally does not understand. He believes that he controls everyone he appoints, that everything is politics, and that all politics is about him. That may be true in Trumpland but not under the Constitution. Not what the Founding Fathers envisioned. Not at all. All wrong. Three branches of government. Checks and balances. No one above the law.
