Federalist Society: Trump is Exactly What Our Constitution Needed

In an op-ed for the Daily Caller on Thursday, Federalist Society Chairman and former Yale Law School dean Steven G. Calabresi said that no modern president “has done more to restore the Constitution” than Donald J. Trump.

Responding to a column in The New York Times written by the “Checks and Balances” conservative group, which accused Trump of endangering the rule of law, Calabresi laid out his case for the president and his faithful adherence to constitutional integrity.

“The president’s first responsibility under the Constitution is ‘to preserve, protect and defend’ it from all enemies foreign and domestic,” wrote Calabresi. “This language appears in the oath that each president takes when he is sworn into office.

“The first way in which the president preserves, protects, and defends the Constitution is by appointing judges who are faithful to its original meaning,” he continued. “President Trump has done that in spades with his two superb appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh are brilliant, originalist lawyers who graduated at the top of their classes from Harvard and Yale Law School and who clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court. You could not have done much better with Supreme Court nominations.”

Calabresi went on to note that Trump’s court appointment at the federal appeals level continued this mission of preserving and protecting our nation’s founding document.

Calabresi said that Trump also stripped the Justice Department of the political mess it had gathered around it during the Obama years, even to the point of sticking by Attorney General Jeff Sessions long after it was clear he’d lost confidence in the man. “This again,” Calabresi noted, “is far more than Trump should have had to do.”

From that point forward, Calabresi praises Trump as much for what he has not done as what he has. He says that he could have, at any point, fired Robert Mueller and thrown Washington into a tailspin. Instead, Trump and his lawyers went above and beyond in their cooperation with the special counsel’s office, providing Mueller with thousands of pages of documents and hours of testimony from White House counsel Don McGahn.

“This level of cooperation by Trump with Mueller goes way beyond anything that Trump needed to do,” he wrote, “and he gets an A + for that as well.”

No group in this country cares more about the proper and faithful interpretation and implementation of the Constitution than the Federalist Society. For them to confer upon President Trump this praise speaks volumes about 45’s commitment to the rule of law.

Not that you would ever in a million years know it by watching the mainstream media.

  1. I think we need to build the wall that is the best from the prototypes and set snipers up on our border to pick off those attempting to get in.

  2. YES thank God we got TRUMP for President he has done and is still doing what he said he would do for this country! Now the wall this country and it’s lower paid indivduals , nor our economy can afford or support this invasion from the caravan. It is financially a Hugh problem and I beleive that Soros and others who have supported this caravan hope it will take us down!

  3. Federalist Society: Trump is Exactly What Our Constitution Needed

    TRUMPing Exactly, our US Rightful Constitution is our/his TRUMP indemnity protection

    and now our TRUMPing US Constitution has more unequivocal investment interest power & growth
    Amen & Amen!!!

  4. You have got to tear down and replace in order to reform and go back to original form. Bringing change will cause much revolt and even violence as we are seeing but this change back to our constitutional republic is vitally important if we want to remain a great and free nation. You must be willing to be brave and politically incorrect as to the new norm.

  5. No argument from me that Trump is what our Constitution needed. Only problem is, he should have come along eight years earlier. We wouldn’t have so much ground to make up if we hadn’t had to endure Obama.

  6. I would say that our nation needed him–it needed a President who abides by the Constitution, and not a President who believes that the Constitution is faulty and and thus is to be ignored. Ten years and month ago, one candidate was sending danger signals to the nation as he declared that our Constitution should have more in it as to what the government should do- (and conversely less in limiting the government for the protection of the citizens from the government).

  7. Trump follows the law and constitution and lives up to his oath of office. The problem is the Media and lower federal courts with judges that don’t understand what the constitution and laws actually say and and use fantasy land whim to decide cases.

  8. Now get rid of the libtard traitors that call themselves judgrs in California and maybe we can protect our country and its people.

  9. This article is spot on he is the greatest President I have seen in a very long time and he has got to have two terms to clean up the destruction and lawlessness the democrats have engineered.

  10. I feel Trump is correct in his actions in DC. He should take action against liberal judges that make decisions that go against the constitution of the USA. Things would change back to the good old reliable constitution faster with them replaced by Trump.

    Impeachment would work well for me to use as a way to replace the liberal judges. Use the Senate or Supreme Court to implement this process and clean house. Otherwise this battle will never end. There is a chance the country will return to the Great Days of the past. Go Trump.

  11. While at work, my travels took me through DC, on several traffic signs I saw the words “F**K Trump, I couldn’t help but think “Why?
    All he’s done is restore our country, he’s given us a better, stronger economy, etc.”
    A little later in the day, some unwashed cretin holding a sign with the same wordage, was walking through traffic looking for handouts, he looked at me, saw my reaction to his sign and lowered his head.
