SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD, FORMER LAW PROFESSOR, MAKES ELEMENTARY LEGAL BLUNDER: In Misstep, Obama Discusses Sealed Indictment on Benghazi. “President Barack Obama was a lawyer before he became a politician, but on Friday he broke one of the most basic legal rules: He publicly discussed a sealed indictment. . . . While the president of the United States can declassify top secret intelligence information on his own say-so, disclosing secret grand jury material is a different matter. Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure clearly states: ‘… no person may disclose the indictment’s existence except as necessary to issue or execute a warrant or summons.'”

Meh. Laws are for the little people. Though it would be amusing to see him held in contempt.
