This reply discusses John Harrison's insightful "Addition by Subtraction," which is a response to "Removal and Tenure in Office." The piece suggests that there are strong historical and textual reasons to suppose that Congress can remove executive and certain judicial officers. It also argues that courts may remove inferior judicial officers. Finally, it offers an admittedly less than full-throated defense of the notion that the President may grant tenure during good behavior to executive officers.
