Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson joins Ben Domenech on The Federalist Radio Hour to discuss history, education, rule of law, faith, and more.
Partisans tend to conflate their policy preferences with ‘the rule of law.’ But you don’t get to fabricate a new Constitution just because you don’t like President Trump.
While claims that the FBI properly inquired of connections between the Trump campaign and Russia were valid to a point, that point has long since passed.
Establishment DC types who reflexively defend Mueller haven’t explained how they came to trust him so completely. It’s a question worth asking given the bumpy historical record of Mueller’s tenure as FBI director.

Both President Trump and President Obama took action to prevent dramatic premium spikes due to Obamacare’s insurance mandates. Yet only Trump was accused of ‘sabotage.’
Claiming that President Trump’s intemperate tone voids an entire legal proceeding is ludicrous, and in doing so Bowe Bergdahl’s legal team is questioning Anglo-American legal fundamendals.
Group identity, open borders, and sanctuary cities are ‘pro-immigrant’ only in the world of fantasy moral high ground.
Immigration laws serve the moral purpose of regulating entry into the nation and safeguarding against unwanted or dangerous intruders.
