Opinion | Trump Tries to Destroy, and Justice Roberts Tries to Save, What Makes America Great - The New York Times
Our institutions give us strength. Fortunately, people with civic courage are working to protect them.
For me, the most disturbing thing about the Trump presidency is the way each week, like a steady drip of acid, Donald Trump tries to erode the thing that truly makes us great as a country and the envy of so many around the world — the independence and nonpartisan character of our courts, our military, our F.B.I., our Border Patrol and our whole federal bureaucracy.
No modern president has been more willing to use U.S. service members or border police as props for his politics, to blithely declare without evidence that most of the 800,000 federal workers going unpaid during the government shutdown are Democrats, to refer to the Pentagon leadership as “my generals” and “my military,” and to denounce different federal judges who have ruled against him as a “so-called judge,” an “Obama judge” and a “Mexican” judge (even though he was born in Indiana).
Why is this so important? Because America’s core governing institutions were not built to be “conservative” or “liberal.” They were built to take our deepest values and our highest ideals and animate them, promote them and protect them — to bring them to life and to scale them. They are the continuity that binds one generation of Americans to the next and the beacon for how we work together to build an ever more perfect union.
At their best, these institutions have created the regulatory foundations and legal and security frameworks that have made America great — that have enabled innovation to be sparked, commerce to flourish and ideas to freely blossom. Rather than serving any party or person’s whims, these institutions have promoted and protected enduring American values, laws, norms and ideals.

Supreme Court will not intervene in Mueller grand-jury subpoena case - Business Insider
The Supreme Court on Tuesday decided not to intervene in the ongoing legal battle between the special counsel Robert Mueller and an unknown foreign corporation fighting Mueller's grand-jury subpoena.
It means the unknown foreign company will be forced to pay fines for each day it refuses to comply with Mueller's subpoena.
Last year a federal appeals court ordered the entity to comply with the subpoena or pay a fine. The company appealed the ruling to the high court in December, and the Supreme Court declined the request on Tuesday.
Few details have trickled out about the case so far, but Mueller dropped a hint last week that the grand-jury-subpoena case could be tied to a separate case prosecutors have against several Russian entities indicted on charges they conspired to interfere in the 2016 race.
