Neal Katyal: Presidents do not have latitude to define emergency as a contravention to Congress

https://www.msnbc.com/the-last-word

For everyone worried about this contrived national emergency, Constitutional scholar Neal Katyal explains it well on this segment. Some points from his comments below referring to the Idiot's ill-conceived national emergency:

- This is a Constitutional disgrace, antithetical to the Constitution...
- Article 1 of constitution: "No money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in consequence of appropriations made by law."

- The Founders' message is clear. Trump's legal advisors are giving him bad advice when they try to reprogram funds on grounds of a national emergency. The president not getting what he wants from Congress is not a national emergency.
This will be challenged in court immediately, and is easy to throw out.

- Re: the $2.5B from DoD drug interdiction program, this is not in the jurisdiction of DoD...Constitution lets Congress decide after appropriations.

- Presidents do not have latitude to define emergency as a contravention to congress.
