Robert Reich: Trump is Violating the Three Basic Principles of the Rule of Law | Opinion

But America wouldn’t allow it. The nation rose up in outrage. Nixon resigned before Congress impeached him.
The question is whether this generation of Americans will have the strength and wisdom to do the same.
