The Democratic-controlled House hasn’t put a check on Trump’s abuse of power. Why haven’t the courts?

With the most recent Ukraine scandal, Nancy Pelosi’s strategy of holding back from impeachment procedures is not only discredited, but so is the judicial system. The Democratic Party leadership just assumed that the courts would do their job by proceeding against Trump himself rather than just his surrogates. That of course hasn’t happened in spite of all the flagrant violations of democratic and ethical norms. This failure is telling of the politicization of the courts, and in a general sense, the bankruptcy of the entire political system.
