JEFFREY TOOBIN: I think he clearly broke the law. The law says 30-days' notice. He didn't give 30-days notice. Now, it is true he issued a signing statement but signing statements are not law. Signing statements are the president's opinion about what the law should mean. Now, it may be that the law is unconstitutional, a violation of his power as commander-in-chief but no court has held that. The law is on the books and he didn't follow it.
