The Constitutional System Is Not Built to Resist Trump’s Defiance of Congress 

Jeffrey Toobin is wrong:

Our constitutional system never contemplated a President like Donald Trump. The Framers anticipated friction among the three branches of government, which has been a constant throughout our history, but the Trump White House has now established a complete blockade against the legislative branch, thwarting any meaningful oversight. The system, it appears, may simply be incapable of responding to this kind of challenge.

I’m pretty sure the Founders did explicitly think about the over-reach and abusive tyranny of a Donald Trump. What they failed to anticipate was our utterly craven Republican senators.
