Lt. Calley, My Lai and DHS

Boehner is about to file a suit to force the president to obey the law. He may or may not have standing to do so. But there’s a better way, one we already know works.

The root of the problem is: can the president order his branch to ignore or defy the law, to act in an illegal manner?

That sounds like a silly question. But the fact is that every employee, manager and executive in that branch of government is bound FIRST by the law and THEN by the head of that branch of government

We have heard the […]
