    The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

    •  give me the nail so I can hammer it, please. (none)
      As I'd rather catch more of your new front pages as they emerge.
      However, in case you do return here:
      Here is where I'm pointing:

      The Attorney General is authorized to approve applications to the FISC

      and

      Specified national security or defense employees [are] designated to make the certifications  in support of [such AG-authorized] applications

      BUT, where is the line in there, or somewhere(?) clearly stating that they are required to be bothered with doing either?

      So empowered, but not so required....or do you read it differently?

      Put another way, the language I don't see is:
      The AG shall...
      The certifying authority shall...

      I'm not arguing that they're not required to.
      Nope,
      I'm struggling with the chronic and deliberate weasel-wording that seems to leave a truck-size loop for steppin' through.

      So help me out here:

      AG: Where does it say I must do that?
      arbortender:  um...
      Armando: Wellsir. Here ye go, right here.
      arbortender: where?

      ...gleefully connecting dots since 1966 scratch
