Unfortunately, the drama over the Flynn plea and White House tweeting continues to draw time and resources away from the Constitution’s one true answer for presidential corruption: impeachment and removal from office. If Mr. Trump has truly impeded a valid investigation, Congress should turn to impeachment, which allows for the removal of a president for “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
John Yoo quoted by The New York Times, Dec. 4, 2017
Todd Gaziano of the Pacific Legal Foundation and John Yoo of the University of California, Berkeley’s law school, have argued in opposition, saying that the power to create a monument “implicitly also includes the power of reversal.”

Even if Mr. Trump has the constitutional power to pardon Mr. Manafort and his allies, conservatives should vigorously oppose such pardons on the ground that they would do serious damage to the presidency. In the popular mind, pardons imply the commission of a crime.

We should be deploying missile defenses of technology over and around North Korea using drones, space, even sea-based anti-missile defenses, and try to shoot the missiles when they launch. That would give us a better bargaining position even though we can’t be sure that we would get all of them.

“International law could not stop the spread of technological progress to the machines of war,” Yoo and Rabkin write, about everything from crossbows to AK-47s. “This has been the lesson of history.”

“This lawsuit has no chance,” noted John Yoo. … “The Equal Protection Clause has never been understood to prohibit the U.S. government from making distinctions in whom in chooses to allow into the country.”
John Yoo quoted by TheSpectrum, Aug. 22, 2017
“A basic tenet of constitutional law is that no president can bind future presidents in the use of their constitutional authorities,” Yoo said.

What the United States and its allies must now do is find options between conventional war, or even nuclear holocaust, on the one hand, and appeasement on the other. The answer could be robotic, cyber, and space weapons — if we have the will to deploy them.
