CASSEL: If the president deems that he's got to torture somebody, including by crushing the testicles of the person's child, there is no law that can stop him?
YOO: No treaty.
CASSEL: Also no law by Congress -- that is what you wrote in the August 2002 memo...
YOO: I think it depends on why the President thinks he needs to do that.
Their new Supreme Court nominee also states that the President is bound to uphold the rule of law. How comforting.
