To the Editor:
Unless we are to accept Richard Nixon's radical formulation "that when the president does it, that means it's not illegal", violations of the FISA Statute of '78 that happened before the 2008 were crimes, and still await prosecution. It is the Executive's job to see that "these laws be faithfully executed". It is not the presidents job and it is not within the president's power to do or to authorize that which our statutes forbid.
