Make it a Carl Curtis Open Comment Friday afternoon for your commenting, battling and otherwise arguing pleasure!
And to start the ball rolling, here is a post from Harvard Constitutional Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz:
A key graph:
Comey confirmed that under our Constitution, the president has the authority to direct the FBI to stop investigating any individual. I paraphrase, because the transcript is not yet available: the president can, in theory, decide who to investigate, who to stop investigating, who to prosecute and who not to prosecute. The president is the head of the unified executive branch of government, and the Justice Department and the FBI work under him and he may order them to do what he wishes.
But don’t confine yourself to the Comey hubabaloo.
And see if you can work in a Nebraska angle.
(See, I just did, right there.)
Have a great weekend!
