April 3, 2020 | Media News

Professor Peter Shane recently published an op-ed on the American Constitution Society website titled, “A COVID-19 Signing Statement from the Unaccountable President.”

In it, Shane exclaims that President Trump “cannot be trusted to stand behind those Administration officials who negotiate on his behalf.”

“The CARES Act will not be the final piece of legislation Congress will be required to enact to help America through its current crisis,” Shane added. “Yet getting to yes on any future deal will be immeasurably harder if the president plays fast and loose with the Constitution¬†and with negotiators.
