Americans aren’t sufficiently concerned about sticking up for the rule of law in our country right now. This is scary.

We cannot afford to tolerate disrespect for fundamental legal norms such as universal accountability under the law, impartial enforcement of justice, and the system of checks and balances designed by the Framers.
