When President Donald Trump took office, it was clear to most observers that he was going to dramatically change — even weaken — some traditional institutions.

One that has certainly felt those effects is the U.S. Senate, which has become increasingly partisan, and fellow Republicans — except for Mitt Romney in the impeachment trial — have been unwilling to speak out against Trump.

In an op-ed published in the Washington Post, 70 former U.S. senators call for members of the body to become more bipartisan and be willing to fight back against some of Trump’s moves.

One of those former senators is Jeff Flake of Arizona.

The Show spoke with him earlier and asked him whether Trump’s administration has simply highlighted problems the Senate already had.
