Dick Cheney is sticking by his story that DOJ and Office of Legal Counsel approved the controversial warrantless domestic wiretapping program, despite the near mutinies of FBI Director Mueller, DAG Comey and OLC chief Goldsmith, among others. In this interview with Bob Schieffer of CBS’s Face the Nation this morning, Cheney also defended his controversial interpretation of the constitution that the president basically faces no legal restraint on his actions. For example, Abraham Lincoln suspended habeas corpus during the Civil War, Cheney said.
“But nobody thinks that was legal,” Schieffer said.
“Well, it certainly was, in the sense he wasn’t impeached,” Cheney replied.
