Om Reining in the Imperial Presidency

Through transcripts, memos, and analysis, Representative John C. Conyers, Jr. and the House Judiciary Committee reveal how the Bush administration again and again assumed more power than the Constitution allows, and circumvented the traditional checks and balances of our system. From ignoring laws that forbid torturing, to determining that the president himselfnot the courtscan decide the reach of the law, to using creative counselors to recast the statutory law or the Constitution itself, the administrations approach to power was, at its core, little more than a restatement of Richard Nixons famous rationalization of presidential misdeeds: When the president does it, that means its not illegal. Reining in the Imperial Presidency includes forty-seven separate recommendations, including calls for continued committee investigation, a blue ribbon commission to fully investigate administration activities, and independent criminal probes. Conyer writes, The Constitution has been sorely tested over the last eight years. But . . . I am confident in our capacity to self-correct. Doing so will require much hard work and diligence, and that effort only continues with the release of this Report. Our work is far from complete.
