  •  Geneva convention (none)
    Congress has the role of making laws, declaring war, and making treaties.

    The President can't legally ignore the Geneva convention because signing on to that was up to Congress.

    The President can act illeagally, has in fact done so, but if I'm hearing Alito correctly and assuming that at least in this regard he isn't lying through his teeth, which you can sort of tell when he is and when he isn't, then he's not above the law and will eventually be answerable to it.
