    This goes well beyond obtaining Congressional approval. It points directly at problems inherent in the AUMF. Trump has, through his flawed and extremist reading of Article II and the AUMF, justified his unilateral decision to assassinate a government official of Iran, thereby making us all potential war criminals by extension. As the ‘duly elected’ (and I say that most unwillingly) manifestation (one might say ‘infestation’) of the United States on the world stage, he is the embodiment, whether or not we like it, of all of us. Until we take decisive action to remove him from office, every act he perpetrates on the world stage implicates the rest of us.
