Im Oktober 2014 veröffentlichte Michael J. Glennon Professor of international law sein Buch: “National Security and Double Government”.

Michal J. Glennon, professor of international law, posits that in U.S. today there are two institutions in control: the “Madisonian” public institutions of the congress, presidency and the courts, which maintain the necessary public illusion that they are in charge and in control of policy, while a secretive “Trumanite” network of unelected, unaccountable national security bureaucrats actually make and set policy that the Madisonians appear to implement as their own.

Michal J. Glennon, professor of international law, draws from the theories of British writer Walter Bagehot (1826–1877), who discussed the structure of British government in his book The English Constitution (1867). He argues that Bagehot’s thesis of a “double government” in nineteenth century Britain also applies to the U.S. today.

Glennon warns that control by the Trumanite network weakens constitutional restraints upon government, such as checks and balances and oversight, and results in less democracy, and a greater risk of despotism
