Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today Jennifer Rubin reported that an activist group named Protect Democracy is preparing a legal challenge to the God-King’s pardon of Joe Arpaio and FiveThirtyEight’s Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux and Andrea Jones-Rooy wrote that the Arpaio pardon has many historical precedents … that turned out badly for the presidents who issued them. Rolling Stone’s Bridgette Dunlap explains why pardoning Arpaio threatens the rule of law and New York Magazine’s Eric Levitz reports that Arpaio epitomized the “everyday authoritarianism” that Americans too often ignore. If the president can pardon a government official who flagrantly violates the Constitution – as the God-King did with Arpaio – is the Constitution still “the supreme Law of the Land?”
