Sen @JeffFlake to Harvard Law Grads: "Our presidency has been debased by a figure who has a seemingly has a bottomless appetite for destruction and division. And only a passing familiarity with how the Constitution works."
FLAKE to Harvard Law School grads: "And our Article I branch of government, the Congress (that’s me), is utterly supine in the face of the moral vandalism that flows from the White House daily."
FLAKE to Harvard Law School grads: "Now, you might reasonably ask, where is the good news in that? Well, simply put: We may have hit bottom."
FLAKE to Harvard Law School grads: "This disease of our polity is far too serious to not be recognized for what it is, the damage it threatens to do to our vital organs is far too great for us to carry on as if all is well. All is not well."
FLAKE says Trump calling for investigation into DOJ Russia investigation was "not to defend the country against further attacks, mind you, but to defend himself. Obviously, ordering investigations is not a legitimate use of presidential power."
FLAKE to Harvard Law Grads: "Rule of thumb: If the only acceptable outcome in a matter of law or justice is a result that is satisfactory to the leader, then you might live in a democracy that is in trouble."
Sen @JeffFlake to Harvard Law grads: "Further to that point: when a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn’t suit him “fake news,” it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press."

FLAKE to Harvard Law grads: "To be clear, we did not become great - and will never be great - by indulging and encouraging our very worst impulses. It doesn’t matter how many red caps you sell."
Flake to Harvard Law School grads: "Our country needs us now. Our country needs you. We need each other, and it is a scoundrel who would prosper politically by turning us against each other."
