Let me add one more note to my discussion with Peter about the legality of how President Obama has handled the Bowe Bergdahl situation. Peter wrote in response to yesterday’s post:
What I find staggering, though–and I suppose this is really something I should have known, but then Obama has never been president before, has he?–what I find staggering is that when the President of the United States engages in genuine lawlessness, no one can take him to court. Obama enforces ObamaCare selectively, ignores the requirement to report to Congress before releasing prisoners, and permits the IRS to engage in political vendettas…and all Congress can do is hold hearings and sputter. Either that or resort to the very blunt instruments of withholding appropriations or–dare one breathe the word?–introducing resolutions of impeachment.
Can this be so, Professor Yoo?
