"Now the [Bolton nomination] battle is beyond the issue of Bolton and focuses on the White House's resistance to legitimate evidence requests by the Senate. It is about the separation of powers in government. Again, the opponents of Bolton are those who are on the high road. They are defending the Senate's positive vis-a-vis the Executive Branch. The White House is trying to cripple the powers of the Senate and beat it into unqualified submission." - - - Steve Clemons
