I disagree with those claiming there’s a “soft coup” unfolding in the White House. I know. Yes, I know. That’s what it looks like when a “senior official in the Trump administration” writes an anonymous op-ed for the Times, revealing this: Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until—one way or another—it’s over.
