Self-Executing Executive Agreements

The treaty clause – Article II, Section 2, Article 2 of the Constitution – gives the President the power to enter into contracts by acting with the “deliberation and approval” of the Senate. 21 Many scholars have concluded that the Framers intend to be “advice” and “consent” as separate aspects of the contracting process.22 23 President George Washington seems to have understood that the Senate had such an advisory role,24 but he and other early presidents quickly refused to obtain the Senate`s contribution during the negotiation process.25 , is exclusive.26 See, z.B.
