This is illegal for sure.

You could use a little education. Allow me to quote from the linked article:

Accurate and comprehensive knowledge of foreign politics; a steady and systematic adherence to the same views; a nice and uniform sensibility to national character; decision, secrecy [emphasis in the original!!! -ED], and despatch [sic], are incompatible with the genius of a body so variable and so numerous.[snip]

The person quoted was Alexander Hamilton discussing the negotiation of treaties in Federalist 75 and the necessity of keeping the House of Representatives out of the loop in the process of negotiation.

Things have changed since then. Congress has the oversight responsibilty of these treaties taking place. So therefore obamma and his comrades are refusing oversight from taking place as the law allows to happen.

Funny thing is that obamma has to get this treaty that he negoitated in secret, approved by the Senate, which at this time probably will not happen now. Yea!
