A double dose of lawlessness

Court proceedings and Senate hearings held on the same day provided troubling insights into how the Trump administration regards the rule of law, according to one law professor. The court hearing on the administration’s travel ban and the Senate’s hearing on Gen. Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russians dramatize the casual contempt of Trump and his advisers for the constitution, the law, and the procedures that guard both, according to Garrett Epps, a law professor at the University of Baltimore. Epps’s comments are available in this story at The Atlantic.
