The administration is arguing that the "de facto member doctrine" was never intended by Congress and should be rejected by the Supreme Court. Its brief says the doctrine turns the statute "into a general warrant to search executive branch groups and committees for contacts with outsiders who might be deemed de facto members," and that this interferes with the president's ability to obtain the advice he needs to perform his constitutional duties.Roughly translated, "that ruling was intended only for democrats and their secret meetings. Our secret meetings are more important cause we can make MONEY off of them. You hear me, Scalia, I told you all about it while we were hunting."
