george wallace, one of the great segregationists of his time and perhaps the greatest segregationist of his time, had paid it clear to his troops that if you maintain order, there will be law to protect you. and as a result, those troops beat the marchers all the way back to the church where they started. they were peaceful protestors. the honorable john lewis said he thought he might die. that was what law and order meant to a good many people in the south. law and order without justice is what took place on that day. but thank god there was a judge, the honorable frank m. johnson, the honorable frank m. johnson issued the order to allow those marchers to move from selma to montgomery, and he did it notwithstanding his classmate, george wallace, having said that they were banned from doing t -- it. this was justice, not law and order alone. this is our fear that the justice department will go back to the hands of someone who may consider it a law and order department. a department where there is a belief that you can do anything to maintain the order and there will be law to support yo

by political consideration. josh bolten, chief of staff to president george w. bush, may have put it best. explaining why president bush excluded political counselor karl rove from all n.s.c. meetings. quote, the president knew that the signal he wanted to send to the rest of the administration, the signal he wanted to send to the public and the signal he especially wanted to send to the military is that the decisions i'm making that involve life and death for the people in uniform will not be tainted by any political decision. i'm filing this bill because i believe that president trump's directive, organizing the n.s.c., breaks from this long-standing, bipartisan tradition of constructing a wall to separate national security policymaking from domestic politics to the greatest extent possible. specifically, the president's directive authorizes the assistant to the president and chief strategist, steve bannon, to be a permanent member of the n.s.c. and to attend all n.s.c. principles meetings. his role in the administration has a strong political component. indeed, it appears unpreced

any one individual is gone. that's why our strongest leaders, from george washington to nelson mandela, have elevated the importance of building strong democratic institutions over a thirst for perpetual power. leaders who amend constitutions to stay in office only acknowledge that if he failed to build a successful country for their people. because none of us last forever. it tells us that power is something they cling to for its own sake rather than for the betterment of those they purport to serve. i understand democracy is frustrating. democracy in the united states is certainly imperfect. at times it can be dysfunctional. but democracy, the constant struggle to extend rights to more of our people, to give more people a voice, is what allowed us to become the most powerful nation in the world.
