This is a great essay Damir! I do agree with you about law, politics, and the role of the exception. Law as a way to regulate the political, does not remove norms from the law, rather it ensures norms are embedded within the law itself.

"We are in the realm of the irreconcilable." This is a fine essay. For me, the bottom-line takes it to a new level. But do I misread it? Are we "in the realm" as a country or because non e of us, as either participants or onlookers, has a framework that allows us to step outside this particular issue?

Good post. I'm confused by the last sentence:

"But that just goes to prove that we are in the realm of the irreconcilable, the purely political realm, where the “normal” legal proceduralism no longer fully applies."

"Purely" & "no longer fully"; the adverbs themselves seem irreconcilable. Accepting the indictments are not devoid of politics does not make them "purely" political.
