'Americans would do well to remember that no single person can create an autocracy; it requires help from others. Whether by sins of omission or commission, lawyers who encourage the systematic erosion of public trust in federal judges are a would-be autocrat’s allies. Upon admission to the bar, the lawyers surrounding  Trump swore fealty to the US Constitution.
