"MacLean himself is trying to lay low, sell those home-grown California solar systems, and not get too distracted. The Supreme Court gets about 10,000 requests for review each year, and agrees to hear about 80. One of them is his."

"The case against MacLean also represents an attempt to broaden executive power in another way. At the moment, only Congress can 'prohibit actions under the law,' something unique to it under the Constitution. In its case against MacLean, the Justice Department seeks to establish the right of the executive and its agencies to create their own pseudo-categories of classification that can be used to prohibit actions not otherwise prohibited by law. In other words, it wants to trump Congress. Regulation made by memo would then stand above the law in prosecuting -- or effectively persecuting -- whistleblowers. A person of conscience like MacLean could be run out of his job by a memo."
