Discussion in 'US Constitution' started by Tehon, Jul 20, 2018.
It's fact, Jake.
No, your opinion is not fact, Tehon.
It is fact, the appointments clause is not ambiguous. All you have to do is point to the law that grants the Attorney General with the power of making the appointment of Mueller as special counsel. You have failed for the specific reason that there is none.
The justification for it is a federal regulation written by Janet Reno which is not supported by any law. There was a law (Ethics in Government Act) but it was allowed to sunset in the late 90's.
These are facts Jake.
That is your legal opinion, but it is not fact. Only a court can do that, and it has not.
Lucky for us a court is hearing it as we speak.
Yes, it is, and I feel confident that your arguments will be rejected. Time will tell.
You lack the confidence to post the rationale for your belief that the special counsel is within the limitations of the Constitution. Thus your statement is taken with a grain of salt.
I did post in a link above, and I agree with the opinions that Mueller's appointment is legal. Be truthful with me at all times, because I am with you.
Yes you posted a link, but your link fails to address the most glaringly obvious question that is being raised in this thread. Instead it frames the constitutional argument around whether the appointment is of a principle officer or an inferior one. What is being pointed out here in this thread is that the designation is irrelevant so long as no law exists that vests the power to appoint in a department head.
If we are being truthful we must admit that, on the surface, the Constitution is being circumvented with the appointment of Robert Mueller. We don't need a court to see that.
I understand. Since no law exists, the argument will have to be that one should exist. That will be very hard to support in arguments. The truth is that Mueller's appointment does not circumvent the Constitution. Hoow could it? Mueller's appointment is safe. The only problem with honesty are the lawyers who are billing $700 an hour on a case that should never have been filed.
