The Executive Power

"Huge claims about presidential power have rested on a conventional understanding of these three words. [Mortenson] argues that this conventional understanding is not just partially wrong, or mostly wrong, but completely wrong, as a matter of history. And, he tries to supplant it with a new understanding that he argues is actually a very old understanding of what those words mean."

The Lawfare Podcast about Professor Julian Davis Mortenson's new article, "Article II Vests Executive Power, Not the Royal Prerogative," which explores the history of the first three words of Article II: "the executive power."
