Do you know who the U.S. answer to for violating its own Laws?

Asked by: Olivia-Mills
  • I would imagine they would answer to the citizens.

    The government is the body responsible for enforcing the law, so there isn't really anyone that can punish the government directly for breaking its own laws. There is the supreme court, but they really can only say that a law or policy is unconstitutional, and can't actually punish the government for having passed those laws. But the citizens can vote to recall the law breaking officials, or they can start an initiative to force a vote for some specific result. I suppose a revolution is the only sure-fire punishment against a government for breaking its laws.
