Chris Hayes on Friday night broke down what he believes is the only thing standing between the rule of law in America and âa kind of authoritarian declineâ under President Donald Trump.
And that â the host of MSNBCâs âAll Inâ declared â âis us.â
âItâs not any law anywhere and itâs certainly not the words as written in the Constitution,â said Hayes, while picking apart the ongoing fallout surrounding Attorney General William Barrâs intervention in cases against Trump allies including Roger Stone.
âThe laws we have, the institutions we have, those are all vitally important but fundamentally we are what stands in the way,â Hayes added.
The news anchor later noted how âthe restraint, the thing stopping the president from doing whatever he wants are peopleâ who mobilize, organize, call switchboards of Congress and resign from their roles as civil servants in protest.
âHeck, people marching and protesting outside the Department of Justice if thatâs what it takes because the only thing to stop him is us,â he added.
