    he has continued to nurture his predecessor's authoritarian approach to Federal law enforcement. I'm not talking about the Cliven Bundy case here, by the way, but more about aggressive deportations and the systematic punishment of whistleblowers (and I'm not talking about Snowden).

    He has done little to back down the tremendous overreach established under the Bush administration and the PATRIOT Act.
