Frontline is doing an hour on the expansion of presidential powers, broadcasting tomorrow, Tuesday, in most markets at 9 pm, called Cheney's Law. David Addington with the help of John Yoo, formerly at the Justice Department, are the legal minds behind most of the legal basis. Should be interesting.
The official program description from the Frontline web site:
For three decades, Vice President Dick Cheney has waged a secretive, and often bitter battle to expand the power of the presidency. Now in a direct confrontation with Congress, as the administration asserts executive privilege to head off investigations into domestic wiretapping and the firing of U.S. attorneys, FRONTLINE meticulously traces the behind-closed-doors battle within the administration over the power of the presidency and the rule of law.
