“Critics of the Trump’s recent pardons understandably and correctly see in them the actions of a man unable or unwilling to separate his personal interest and public role,” wrote Bob Bauer in Pardons, Obstruction of Justice and the Rule of Law in the Demagogic Presidency, Lawfare, June 3, 2018. He adds “This is a sharp criticism of his actions, but it is more than that. It also serves as a description of his leadership style, which is that of the classic demagogue. The politics of demagoguery most clearly defines the rule-of-law issues raised by Trump’s pardons and shows how they relate to his other moves to reshape the norms governing the executive’s stewardship of law enforcement.” Recommended. — Joe
