An anonymous senior official at the White House publicly says the president is harming American democracy.
The official says he/she and some colleagues are trying to block what they think are the president’s more reckless decisions.
Many online critics are saying that the honorable thing for the White House dissenters to do is to identify themselves, resign in protest, and call for the 25th Amendment to be invoked (calling, that is, for the president to be removed).
Practically speaking, though, that could also leave the country even more vulnerable to an erratic president’s whims. The chance of replacing the president via the 25th Amendment is slim, and those who resign are likely to be replaced by yes-men.
What action by the “quiet resistance” would be in the best interest of the country?
