"Donald Trump, the Republican Party's presumptive presidential nominee, is heading toward July's national party convention with a majority of delegates (as 'bound' by state primaries and caucuses) in hand. But ever since it became clear that he would garner that majority, both he and the GOP leadership have spent a good deal of time trying to snuff out talk of a floor revolt by those delegates against his nomination and in favor of some other candidate's. 'The Republican National Committee put out a statement 'you can't do it, it's not legal, you can't do it, you're not allowed to do it,'' says Trump. Is Trump right? Is it 'illegal' for the delegates to do what they want instead of what Trump and the RNC claim the rules demand? In a word, no." (06/29/16)
