Discussion Post – Marshall

Prompt: Marshall takes a different view on things and argues that presidential power (and thus the power of the executive branch) inevitably expands and that it has expanded dramatically since the days of the Framers. 

  • Which arguments does Marshall use to argue that the power of the Presidency is far greater today than ever?
  • Which potential remedies does Marshall suggest to what he argues is an increase in Presidential and executive branch power that upsets the Constitutional balance?

Must answer the above two bulleted questions. Must have in-text citation references to the Marshall PDF article  and the Corn text (Chapter 1 & 2 only). The Corn text should be referenced specifically in the context of Supreme Court decisions that impacted the question of the separation of powers between the branches of the federal government.


Page count and spacing does NOT matter, it just has to be at least 1,000 words and include evidence from the two readings.


Corn text (chapter 1 & 2 only) can be accessed for free here: https://www.google.com/books/edition/Aspen_Treatise_for_National_Security_Law/I36aDwAAQBAJ?hl=en&gbpv=1
