    Already covered. The appeals minnie court agreed 2 to 1 and the White House is appealing to the full 4th Circuit Court. Hopefully the Full Court also agrees that the President does not have that power and I suspect they will. If taken to the Supreme Court I have every reason to believe the Supreme Court will also agree the President does not possess this power.
