Shorter Greenwald

It's almost a literary crime to shorten any Glenn Greenwald essay, but if you're really in a rush then read this excerpt from "A New Low: The Senate Seeks to 'Pardon' the President for Past Lawbreaking":
[I]t is the entire Congress which has failed in its responsibilities to take a stand against this President's lawbreaking and abuses, and there is plenty of blame to go around in both parties. The reason the President has been allowed to exert precisely the type of unrestrained power which the Founders sought, first and foremost, to avoid, is because the Congress has allowed him to.
