In an important new oped for the the Independent Record, former Montana Supreme Court Justice James C. Nelson discusses why we must hold President Trump accountable for his violations of the US Constitution, our democratic values, and the rule of law.

Our Constitution and the rules, guardrails, norms and values that it embodies must be protected, lest we lose our democracy to the President’s imperceptible chipping away at the constitutional foundations of our Republic.

Violating the Constitution, the democratic values that have served us for over two centuries, and the rule of law must not be allowed to become the new and accepted normal—just because the Chief Executive does it and, seemingly, gets away with it.

Justice Nelson is a member of the Legal Committee of Free Speech For People’s Board and a member of the Legal Advisory Board of our impeachment campaign.
