Mitchell Robertson

D.Phil. student Mitch Robertson has published an article in the Washington Post's 'Made by History' section, a daily feature which offers historical perspective on current affairs.

The article analyses the prospects of President Trump's widespread use of acting appointees, given the constitutional requirements for Senate confirmation. As Robertson shows, it is not the first time that presidential appointment powers have been used in this way. The article can be accessed here.

Mitch Robertson is writing a D.Phil. in History on 'Richard Nixon, the Office of Economic Opportunity and the limits of presidential power in the wake of the Great Society'.
