“I have an Article II, where I have the right to do whatever I want as president.” So said President Trump last year, and he has been doing his best ever since to embody that grotesquely inflated constitutional self-conception.

Thus, Trump blocked Anthony S. Fauci from testifying this week before the House. “The House is a setup,” Trump proclaimed. Yes, set up by the Constitution, as part of a coequal branch.”

Editor’s Note: No one in the United States is above the law, especially this President.
