The article begins with this paragraph:

“A President who invokes absolute authority to…pardon himself . An ambassador to Germany who declares he wants to…topple the German government . Senators — the most powerful people in democracy, save the President — knocking on the door of a ‘detainment center’, looking for kids separated from their parents, only to be denied by guards who…laugh at them contemptuously, call the police, and have them shooed away like nobodies ."
