Mukasey’s Paradox

MUKASEY’S PARADOX….Jonathan Turley on Attorney General Michael Mukasey:

In his twisting of legal principles, the attorney general has succeeded in creating a perfect paradox. Under Mukasey’s Paradox, lawyers cannot commit crimes when they act under the orders of a president — and a president cannot commit a crime when he acts under advice of lawyers.

Bertrand Russell would be proud.
