"... ban him from future office; expel Cruz and Hawley; and then vote to censure others who tried to deny voters the president and vice president they chose. McConnell should do these things not because it is the only moral, decent course, but because he is smarter than McCarthy and knows that to do any less would starve his members of financial support and set them up for losses from pro-democracy primary challengers or Democrats. And we know one thing: McConnell is not dumb."  From "Impeachm...

The "Constitutional Crisis" Has Finally Arrived

In 2009, Jack Balkin and I published an article in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review on “constitutional crises.”  Drawing on Machiavelli’s analysis of the ancient Roman constitution, we identified two basic forms of crisis.  The first occurred when a political leader openly defied the law; the second, on the other hand, was typified by an almost thoughtless adherence to the law even when catastrophe threatened. As a matter of fact, American presidents—our main interest—have rarely...
