    Jeffrey Toobin: Obama ‘Clearly Broke the Law’ on Bergdahl | Mediaite

    CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin declared on Monday that President Barack Obama “broke the law” when his administration failed to give Congress notice of at least 30 days before releasing five ranking Taliban members from Guantanamo Bay. Toobin said that a presidential signing statement did not absolve Obama from culpability for failing to abide by the law mandating congressional notification.

    “I think he clearly broke the law,” Toobin said. “The law says 30-days’ notice. He didn’t give 30-days’ notice.” Toobin added that Obama’s opinion expressed in a signing statement “is not law.”

    it is impeachable BTW

    He will not be impeached. No one is willing to deal with the fallout that would occur if he was. We are all going to just keep walking on eggshells until he is out of office, and then try to repair the damage he has done to this country.

    It's been a single party system for some time. Others are just too caught up in voting for the "lesser of two evils" to acknowledge that they are still supporting "evil".

    Knock yourself out. No one will act on your demands. Obama's impeachment has been demanded since Benghazi. Look where those demands have gotten you.

    A "legal law" is Title Code which is congruent with the letter and intent of the Constitution, like the Civil Rights Act, as opposed to Title Code which is contradictory to the letter and intent of the Constitution, such as The Patriot Act.

    Legal or not...it is one of the more stupid things Obama has done as commander in chief. Now the Taliban and al queda have vastly greater incentive to kidnap Americans.
