The President has nearly complete formal authority over DOJ. But the remarkable lesson of the last 2 years is that Trump nonetheless has practically no effective authority to use these tools to harm his political enemies. When it comes to using DOJ, Trump is incompetent and weak.

DOJ norms and culture and rules, plus the political backlash, would thwart any such effort, just as it has thwarted every similar effort to date.

The NYT worries that w/ Whitaker in charge and McGahn gone, Trump can finally get his way. But even if Whitaker wanted to satisfy the President, I doubt he could succeed.

It's not news that Trump wants DOJ to investigate or prosecute Clinton or Comey. He's long expressed that opinion on Twitter and elsewhere. The tiny bit of news in the story is about how Trump’s own WH Counsel, and the FBI and DOJ run by his appointees, rebuffed him yet again.

What NYT presents as an ominous development—"one of the most blatant examples yet of how Mr. Trump views the typically independent Justice Department as a tool to be wielded against his political enemies”—is really another story about how weak Trump is.

This interview with Leonard Leo, even though Leo speaks in his personal capacity (and not Fed Soc’s), and Peter Keisler’s responses, clarify both issues. .

I'm going to try to find time this week to write about “checks and balances” () v. the Federalist Society (). I’ve been puzzling over (a) how ’s commitments differ from , and (b) what, precisely, the organizations disagreed about.

In his tweet, observes a "breakdown of norms against leaking/reporting on the contents of foreign intelligence intercepts." I'll raise a further concern in a question that beyond that.

What has happened to ACLU is one of the saddest developments of the Trump era. But there are already groups - such as - emerging to replace it as an actual civil liberties group which defends rights regardless of partisan outcomes. Also still great ACLU lawyers remain

This is obviously interesting for many reasons, but perhaps the least obvious reason is that it is further evidence for the breakdown of norms against leaking/reporting on the contents of foreign intelligence intercepts.

There was a disturbance in the legal Force, as if the voices of generations of ACLU civil libertarians cried out in anguish and were suddenly silenced by wokeness.
