excerpted from a lengthy screed which i'll spare you but the question's a good one

the writer concludes her screed asking:

/Is a President, on the eve of his reelection campaign, legally entitled
to ward off political embarrassment and conceal past failures in the
exercise of his office by unilaterally and informally declassifying
selected -- as well as false and misleading -- portions of a classified
National Intelligence Estimate that he has previously refused to
declassify, in order to cause such information to be secretly disclosed
under false pretenses in the name of a "former Hill staffer" to a single
reporter, intending that reporter to publish such false and misleading
information in a prominent national newspaper?/
