Did Obama Break the Law?

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said that President Obama "clearly broke the law" in his efforts to free American POW Bowe Bergdahl, the Huffington Post reports.

Said Toobin: "I think he clearly broke the law. The law says 30-days' notice. Give 30 days' notice. Now, it is true that he issued a signing statement, but signing statements are not law. Signing statements are the president's opinion about what the law should mean. Now, it may be that the law is unconstitutional, a violation of his power as commander in chief, but no court has held that. The law is on the books, and he didn't follow it."
