Prof. VanLandingham on pardons

USA Today has just posted this powerful op-ed by this blog's contributor Rachel VanLandingham. She writes:
There will always be those in uniform who are incapable of living up to such a high code of honor. As long as the military maintains a fair military justice system through which to duly investigate and justly hold them accountable, our military and the nation it fights for are in a good place. But commander in chief [Donald J.] Trump threatens to continue to betray those who daily exhibit the requisite moral courage we associate with our uniform. Could this be Trump’s real goal — to weaken and divide the military, just as he is already doing to American society?

  1. That has been my concern. He seems to be sending the message that loyalty to him is more important than obedience to orders.
