CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin States President Barack Obama “Clearly Broke the Law” in Releasing Taliban Detainees from GITMO without giving Congress 30 Days Notice … Jonathan Turley Too

 

Two Liberal Lawyers say Barack Obama clearly broke the law …

CNN’s legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin stated yesterday on ‘The Situation Room’ with Wolf Blitzer that President Barack Obama “clearly broke the law” by failing to provide notice to Congress at least 30 days before trading five Taliban members from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley also said on CNN that the White House broke the law by releasing five high-ranking Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay without congressional notification.

“They did,” the professor replied matter-of-factly. “I don’t think that the White House is seriously arguing that they’re not violating federal law. And to make matters worse, this is a long series of violations of federal law that the president’s been accused of. … This is going to add to that pile. I don’t think there’s much debate that they’re in violation of the law.”

But as those Hillary Clinton likes to say, “what difference does it make?”

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.”

“The law is on the books, and he didn’t follow it,” Toobin added.

Why should this come as a surprise to anyone that Barack Obama is willfully and purposely breaking the law? He defends the laws he likes and ignores the ones he doesn’t. This is what an Imperialist president looks like.

      This is what “Rulers Law” looks like. The very thing that caused the Revolutionary War with King George.

      This is ample cause for Impeachment of Obama. When the other sixty plus violations are added to this, there should be enough cause for removal from office and placement before a firing squad.

      Will the GOP House stand up and protect the people and the country by removing him? We will wait to see if they have what it takes to do the right thing.

      i have yet to see a backbone in any GOP politician. we now have illegal Mexicans pouring across our borders unchecked and now Obumo wants another 1.6 billion to care for them ???
      this was planned. what do you think will be next ?? maybe the parents will be allowed to come over free of charge and become instant citizens.
      IMPEACH AND PROSECUTE
