Jack Goldsmith, a professor at Harvard Law School, former Bush administration official and author of The Terror Presidency: Law and Judgment inside the Bush Administration and is among the nation’s most insightful commentators on the Executive Branch.

During the Obama administration, Goldsmith wrote at length about how President Obama embraced the Bush administration’s approach to executive power, particularly in foreign affairs. Now Goldsmith has trained his sites on the Trump administration.

The October 2017 issue of The Atlantic features Goldsmith’s searing critique of the Trump presidency to date. His article, “Will Donald Trump Destroy the Presidency?” is a must-read.
